SPELT FROM HOPKINS’S LEAVES: CONSIDERING ARCHIVAL ‘REMAINS’

Archives: The Journal of the British Records Association (2016), 51, (132-3), 35–47.

Abstract

What can be learned from three sketchbooks, a family scrapbook, a handful of letters, an essay notebook, and a few other ‘scraps, orts, and fragments’? The Gerard Manley Hopkins ‘remains’ at Balliol College, Oxford, although comparatively few, have much to teach us about his controversial practices as self-curator, the posthumous (and precarious) disposition of his poetry and papers, and the ways in which reading Hopkins is always an exercise in textual counter-point.
