The Hopkins Society was formed in 1989 after the success of celebrations in North Wales of the centenary of Gerard Manley Hopkins' death. It aims to celebrate Hopkins' contribution to English Literature, keep members informed of recent news and research about Hopkins, hold Hopkins study days, an annual Hopkins lecture and produce a journal. Meetings are held in the Spring and Autumn.
The society aims to have at least one meeting a year based in Wales and/or the North West where Hopkins trained as a Jesuit at St Beuno's (left) and was a Curate at St Francis Xavier's Church in Liverpool. From time to time the annual lectures given by distinguished speakers are published and available to buy. (see Resources page for further information)
