The Victorian Jesuit Gerard Manley Hopkins found in religious discipline, and released in his poetry, the tremendous power at the heart of human language. In Created to Praise , Margaret Ellsberg traces the poet's development, arguing that Hopkins' use of a specifically sacramental ideal of language, a poetic diction that celebrates particularly in nature, allows the poet/priest to unite the vocabularies of both vocations and achieve a voice perfectly pitched at praise.
