Gerard Manley Hopkins was born in London in 1844.His father was a writer and poet who founded a Marine Insurance firm . After University he underwent a conversion to the Catholic Church which... More > estranged him from his family and some of his friends. In pursuit of his new faith he gave up poetry and began teaching until deciding to become a Jesuit Priest.

However the return to teaching and his move to Dublin to became a professor of Greek literature led to a periods of depression until his death in 1889. In the 20th Century Hopkins poetry was acclaimed for its striking imagery and use of language which contrasted greatly with the general trends of 19th Century poetry.

More > Brotherhood . When Rossetti’s wife Elizabeth Siddal died of a Laudanum overdose in 1862 ,Rossetti became increasingly depressed and buried many of his unpublished poems with her, a gesture that backfired somewhat because at a later date he would have them dug up. After his first collection of poetry was heavily criticised in 1872, his decline increased with an addiction to chloral hydrate and alcohol. When Rossetti died in 1882 ,he considered he had failed in many of his achievements. However Rosseti’s fame increased into the 20th century ,not only due to his own work but also due to the influence on the artists around him. His poetry although less well known than his paintings are now admired for their eroticism and sensuality especially his collection The House of Life.< Less
