Sir Andrew Motion

The University of Roehampton is proud to launch “Hopkins Celebrated” – a series of events to honour the Victorian poet Gerard Manley Hopkins. Hopkins spent his novitiate as a Jesuit priest at Manresa House, now the home of Whitelands College, and later returned for a while to teach. 

Hopkins Celebrated will culminate with the inaugural Hopkins Lecture at 5.30pm on Wednesday 1 May 2013. This will see Sir Andrew Motion, the former Poet Laureate, in a personal poet-to-poet encounter, where he will focus on Hopkins’ ways of looking and examining the Jesuit ‘discipline of the eyes’.

Tickets for the lecture are free and can be booked online. For tickets please click on this link.
