    A Note on the Text

    The text is the first edition of Hopkins's poems, edited by Robert Bridges and published in 1918. It should be borne in mind when using the Web Concordance that this edition is substantially different from a modern edition of Hopkins.

    Words omitted from the Concordance are THE, AND, OF, A, TO, IN

    The html etext of the poems is derived from the one at Columbia University's Bartleby Library. A few corrections have been made.
