Gerard Manley Hopkins, whose desire to publish his poetry was frustrated in his Victorian lifetime by his Jesuit superiors, was first published in 1918 by his trusted friend and informal archivist Robert Bridges. During the twentieth century his difficult work became canonical and revered. His journals and letters have also recently received high praise.
