Pied Beauty Summary & Analysis
by Gerard Manley Hopkins

"Pied Beauty" is a poem by Victorian poet, Gerard Manley Hopkins. It is a kind of hymn of praise to God that marvels at the varied world that God created. The poem sees God's majesty not just in nature's sheer variety, but also in the labors of humankind and in the abstract categories that people use to understand their experience of the world. The poem was written in 1877 but not published until 1918, and showcases Hopkins's trademark linguistic inventiveness.
