(Carrion Comfort) Analysis

Author: poem of Gerard Manley Hopkins Type: poem Views: 5

Sponsored Links

Not, I'll not, carrion comfort, Despair, not feast on thee;
Not untwist—slack they may be—these last strands of man
In me ór, most weary, cry I can no more. I can;
Can something, hope, wish day come, not choose not to be.
But ah, but O thou terrible, why wouldst thou rude on me
Thy wring-world right foot rock? lay a lionlimb against me? scan
With darksome devouring eyes my bruisèd bones? and fan,
O in turns of tempest, me heaped there; me frantic to avoid thee and flee?

  Why? That my chaff might fly; my grain lie, sheer and clear.
Nay in all that toil, that coil, since (seems) I kissed the rod,
Hand rather, my heart lo! lapped strength, stole joy, would laugh, chéer.
Cheer whom though? the hero whose heaven-handling flung me, fóot tród
Me? or me that fought him? O which one? is it each one? That night, that year
Of now done darkness I wretch lay wrestling with (my God!) my God.

In contrast with comments suggesting that Hopkins was an atheist, he was actually a Catholic, and a member of the Jesuit order. This poem doesn't portray feelings of atheism nor does it give any reference whatsoever to the institution of the Church, rather it gives us an insight into a year of Hopkins' life during which time he was plagued by feelins of doubt about the validity. However as the poem shows, he does not give into these feelings of despair; 'carrion' literally means dead, decaying flesh, and in the first line Hopkins insists that, despite the hardships he faces, he will not give in to his despair, because to do that would be to feast on something dead.

This poem is an insight into the atheist views of Gerard Manley Hopkins. He questions the existence of God and points to the stupidity of Religion.
