G.M. Hopkins Conference Coming Soon to Denver!

For any Denverites reading this, Regis University will soon host its annual Gerard Manley Hopkins Conference discussing the master poet and Jesuit priest. Thus saith the website:

The 2006 Hopkins International Conference will be held at Regis University, Denver, Colorado from March 24th to March 26th. Accommodation has been reserved at the Comfort Inn/Brown Palace Hotel in downtown Denver.

Peter Milward, SJ, of Sophia University, Japan will be a presenter, as will novelist Ron Hansen. Once again, Shakespearean actor Richard Austin will provide excellent recitations of Hopkins' poems, recorded copies of which are available for purchase on his website.

Last year excepted, I have been a regular attendee at the conference since its inception. Highly recommended.

[Also: with the exception of the banquet, all events are free and open to the public!]
