“I cannot think of altering anything”, Hopkins told Robert Bridges of The Wreck of the Deutschland, “Why shd. I? I do not write for the public. You are my public and I hope to convert you.” This one-day workshop, held in celebration of the new Oxford Collected Works edition of Hopkins' correspondence, will debate how Hopkins' notion of his public-both real and imagined-informs the nature of his writing and reception.
Speakers: Noel Barber, S.J., Matthew Campbell, Andrew Hodgson, Michael D. Hurley, Jude V. Nixon, Francis O'Gorman, Michael O'Neill, Catherine Phillips, Aakanksha Virkar-Yates, James Williams, Jane Wright.
Cost of workshop including refreshments and lunch will be £25 waged and £10 student rate. For further information, see http://hopkinsaudiences.wordpress.com/or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
