Although Gerard Manley Hopkins' poetry is over one hundred years old, his expression of what he believes are fundamental truths provides it with an enduring quality which continues to enthral readers today. In particular, it is Hopkins' innovative style - his use of compound words, sprung rhythm and a contemplative approach - allow the reader to have a greater appreciation of the trials he faced. Hopkins achieves this by combining his exploration of nature and God, together with his belief in the uniqueness of the individual in the context of diversity created by God – a characteristic he referred to as 'inscape'.
