The purpose of this study is to classify the imagery of Gerard Manley Hopkins and to trace the sources from which he drew his similes, personifications, and metaphors. A consideration of the language in which the imagery is expressed and of Hopkins' aesthetic theory should contribute to a clearer interpretation of the imagery and to a better understanding of a poet who Is considered obscure, eccentric, and beyond the comprehension of all save a few special admirers and critics.
