Dr Michael D. Hurley @mdhcambridge joins Dr Rebekah Lamb @rebekahannlamb and Dr Jan Graffius @StonyArchivum to discuss Gerard Manley Hopkins’s poem, “God’s Grandeur”: https://soundcloud.com/user-15373540

On a podcast hosted by the Jesuit Collections https://www.jesuitcollections.org.uk, Dr Hurley (University of Cambridge), Dr Lamb (University of St Andrews), and Dr Graffius (Curator of the Museum, Library, and Archives at Stonyhurst) explore Hopkins’s life, the literary and theological richness of his poetry, and some of the ways in which his religious, scientific, and creative imagination was shaped by his experiences at Stonyhurst. The discussion focuses especially on Hopkins’s poem, “God’s Grandeur”, which features this year in the Easter Service at Stonyhurst College.
