Gerard Manley Hopkins: His Poetics and Poetry

An evening of conversation and poetry

with Prof. Angela ALAIMO O’DONNELL, Poet and Associate Director of the Curran Center for American Catholic Studies at Fordham University, and Ms. Concetta PILSNER, English Language Arts Instructor, Cardinal Spellman High School, Bronx, NY

Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center and the Curran Center for American Catholic Studies

Literary historians universally recognize in Gerard Manley Hopkins one of the greatest and most original poets of the English language. However, he is not as well known as he deserves to be, partly due to the technical sophistication of his work and perhaps also because of his explicitly religious themes. Crossroads is pleased to present an evening dedicated specifically to Hopkins, with a special focus on his vision of the natural world as a sign of the divine and also on the theme of the Incarnation.

The event is open to the public and free of charge.
