One comment on “Inversnaid

  1. I’ve always loved Gerald Manley Hopkins rocking and rollicking verse. There was no one I know of at that time writing alliterative, rhyming poetry – he really stands out, a true original.

    Anyhow, a lot of times I’m not quite sure what he’s talking about! I have that problem with several late 19th and 20th century English-language poets. I like the music of their poetry, the imagery of their poetry, but for the life of me, have no idea what they’re talking about.

    This poem seems to be all about the place Inversnaid – and for me the picture of the falls there helps illuminate the poems meaning.
