Abstract

JEFFREY B. LOOMIS / 359 In conclusion, I'd like to mention that Michael Millgate is currently editing Thomas Hardy's "Poetical Matter" Notebook for publication with Oxford University Press. Unfortunately, the notebook itself appears to have vanished; certainly its current location remains unknown. Perhaps, like one of Florence Hardy's diaries, it will turn up in the Antiques Roadshow! Millgate tells me that it's not an early notebook, that Hardy evidently compiled it as he was reading through his working pocketbooks (subsequently destroyed) in preparation for the composition of Life and Work--but it does incorporate some early notes and is of very special interest because of its focus on poetic composition. Luckily Richard Little Purdy, some fifty years ago, took the precaution of having it microfilmed. But Millgate would dearly like to view the original should it be discovered and found to have survived undamaged. JEFFREY B. LOOMIS Although only one new full-length book largely devoted to Hopkins has reached my reviewer's desk this year, I find it highly worthy. Written by a New Zealander who was partly educated in Scotland and has now published his work with an Anglo-American press, Tim McKenzie's Vocation in the Poetry of the Priest-Poets
