Many of the themes of Hopkins’s The Wreck of the Deutschland can be seen to recur in the 1877 poems written in its aftermath. A mystical understanding of the sacraments, an emphasis on the doctrine of the mystical body, the deification of the soul, the indwelling of the Spirit and the soul’s contemplative ascent to divine vision – these are some of the themes that recur in poems that follow the The Wreck.
