As Kingfishers Catch Fire: (Penguin Little Black Classics)
Gerard Manley Hopkins (Author)
'O let them be left, wildness and wet' As Kingfishers Catch Fire is a selection of Gerard Manley Hopkins' incomparably brilliant poetry, ranging from the ecstasy of 'The Windhover' and 'Pied Beauty' to the heart-wrenching despair of the 'sonnets of desolation'. Introducing Little Black Classics: 80 books for Penguin's 80th birthday.
