It also gives full explanations of such terms as sprung rhythm and inscape, and attempts to gauge the effect on Hopkins of the medieval schoolman John Duns Scotus. There have traditionally been two critical theories about Hopkins work: that it was the result of a conflict between his priestly and his poetic vocations- or that the poetry was given birth and shaped by his training for the priesthood.

John Robinson appraises both these theories fairly and sensitively, and puts forward his own view of the poets development - that in pursuit of his ideals, Hopkins lived the whole of his life in extremity and that the consequences of this are evident in his poetry, in his joy and in his anguish.
