'Touching God: Hopkins and Love' is the first book devoted to love in the writings of Gerard Manley Hopkins, illuminating our understanding of him as a romantic poet. Discussions of desire in Hopkins' poetry have focused on his unrequited attraction to men. In contrast, Duc Dau turns to Luce Irigaray and Maurice Merleau-Ponty's theories of mutual touch to uncover the desire Hopkins cultivated and celebrated: his love for Christ. 'Touching God' demonstrates how descriptions of touching played a vital role in the poet's vision of spiritual eroticism. Forging a new way of reading desire and the body in Hopkins' writings, the work offers fresh interpretations of his poetry.
