The Windhover: To Christ Our Lord Analysis

Author: poem of Gerard Manley Hopkins Type: poem Views: 7

Sponsored Links

I caught this morning morning's minion, king-

  dom of daylight's dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn Falcon, in his riding

  Of the rolling level underneath him steady air, and striding

High there, how he rung upon the rein of a wimpling wing

In his ecstasy! then off, off forth on swing,

  As a skate's heel sweeps smooth on a bow-bend: the hurl and gliding

  Rebuffed the big wind. My heart in hiding

Stirred for a bird,--the achieve of; the mastery of the thing!

Brute beauty and valour and act, oh, air, pride, plume, here

  Buckle! AND the fire that breaks from thee then, a billion

Times told lovelier, more dangerous, O my chevalier!

  No wonder of it: shéer plód makes plough down sillion

Shine, and blue-bleak embers, ah my dear,

  Fall, gall themselves, and gash gold-vermillion.

Wow, "original, spare, strange" iedned. I do hear what you mean, and am "adazzled." The article mentioned that Hopkins invented "Sprung rhythm," which, while I never would have picked up on it on my own--I can definitely appreciate in the way the verses sound so much more natural than strict iambic ones.You're right, too: it's clear the love of nature dominates the religious elements.

A pagan element in Hopkins is evidenced in the lines: \"My heart in hiding / Stirred for a BARD. Hopkins hides behind the kestrel: Christ. Nature and nurture is here juxtaposed. The pagan and the poet; the creator and the created.
Christ is just another creation. Another text.
We live by texts, swear by it and die for it. All defenders of our faiths... Good, thinking minds, then go underground. Hopkins the poet (creator) goes into \'hiding\'.
This same hiding is again felt in \'The Wreck of the Deutschland\'
\"And after it almost unmade, what with dread,
Thy doing: and dost thou touch me afresh?
Over again I feel thy finger and find thee.\"
The \'touch\' of creation as painted by Michelangelo in the Sistine chapel alludes to a feeling of fear for having become the Creator. I am laughing my arse off ... Lol.

Rizgar Othman Kurdish 2-8-2012 Inida
Generally what I u have understood from this difficult poem is the following points:
1- There are 2 main themes : descriptions of the bird and Love for God.
So he starts to describe the Falcon and its movements in the air just like the skates heel all are simile to describe the sudden changes of birds movement, and this falcon compared to the Christ, because he was a Christian and dedicated his poem to Christ our Lord. And he compares the physical abilities of the bird to the earthbound narrator himself.
- In the other hand, his inner and out appearance or his burning inner love for God, it shows the narrators feeling toward God, and he uses many religious words like dauphin in French means the son of the King, and mornings minion or dawn, or chevalier all are religious words and told the God billion times Lovelier.
2- As I have mentioned above, generally we see the poem is religious and regal
- It is religious because dedicated to Christ our lord and in other hand regal because Hopkin uses the regal word.
3- He has an intense relationship with nature, and through nature he expresses his love for God.
4- He says my own heart here through this poem he expresses his own doubts on religion and his belief.
