Richard Austin
Hopkins Performer

 

 
 

 It is not in dry, academic dissection but in breathing, juicy performance that the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins can be experienced at its best. By infusing the verses with the energy of love – love of lyric, love of music and love of Hopkins - and by adapting these wonderful poems into a modern musical idiom, Sean O’Leary has taken several giant strides towards making Gerard’s work accessible to new generations and realising the poet’s own wish that his work, if ever published, ’ought…to be followed up’.
