Soli Deo Gloria

I WAS twenty years old. I remember how hot the room seemed, though it had to have been January, so it was the radiators that made it uncomfortable. It was the first day in a course entitled Nineteenth-Century English Literature. I don't know where I was when we did eighteenth-century—asleep, perhaps. At any rate, in the fall semester I had revisited the august Milton and fallen in love with John Donne and was sure that nothing of any worth had happened in English lit. since the close of the seventeenth century. Nineteenth-Century was a seminar course, and each of us was to do a paper. The room was hot, and I was sleepy. (Are college students always sleepy?) So when my turn came to say what writer I'd selected, I racked my brain for anyone whom I could remember that might have been born English in that boring century and said at last Kipling, having been read the Just-So Stories on my mother's lap.

Katherine, I heard Dr. Winship saying, you don't want to write on Kipling. You want to write on Gerard Manley Hopkins. I woke up. How could I want to write on Gerard Manley Hopkins? It was the first time in my life that I had ever heard the name, but Dr. Winship said I wanted to write about this person, and in the two and a half years that I had known Dr. Winship I had learned that he generally knew what he was talking about. So on the paper beside my name, I obediently wrote down Gerard Manley Hopkins, without knowing whether to put an e in the Manley or not.

That afternoon I went to the library to meet the object of this arranged marriage. I remember all too well the first poem I read. It was The Windhover.
