This article considers Gerard Manley Hopkins's The Wreck of the Deutschland (1876) in the light of the emblematic practice of the seventeenth century. It examines Hopkins's poem as a meditative and mystical text, composed with deliberate reference to the School of the Heart emblems seen in both Francis Quarles's Emblems (1635) and, more particularly, Henry Hawkins's The Devout Heart (1634).
