Review quote

To read Hopkins's poetry aloud, you have to be sensitive to all his chiming alliteration,assonance and idiosyncratic rhythm, and yet allow the poet's own voice to be heard. Jeremy Northam does just that, giving the listener the essence of Hopkins: the 'dearest freshness deep down things'. (Rachel Redford, The Observer)
