July 28

July 28 is the birthdate of English poet Gerard Manley Hopkins. He is considered an early Modern poet, a daring innovator in a period of traditional (Victorian) verse. His poetry is notable for the use of “sprung rhythm” (unconventional metre), stunning imagery and intricate use of language and rhyme. He died of typhoid fever at age 44.
