An Examination of "The Windhover"
iROC - Investigating Research on Campus
Please be with us February 25th when James Cotter, Division of Arts and Letters, will present An Examination of "The Windhover".
“The Windhover” is a religious poem that begins with a description of nature and ends with Hopkins discussing God’s grace. Dr. Cotter, author of Inscape: The Christology and Poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins, will examine the poem through a variety of lenses.
