Synopsis of My Own Heart, Let Me Have More Pity On

This is one of the 1885 ‘terrible sonnets' which ‘came unbidden', one of five poems found in Hopkins' papers after his death. It was written in Ireland and deals with themes similar to those of the other poems of that year - Hopkins' emotional and spiritual suffering and his lack of comfort whilst working at University College, Dublin.
