The Staircase – Part 2 | Victorian Domestic Dangers
Most typical staircase falls were concentrated in urbanised areas, as the upper floor of the rural labourers’ homes, even throughout the Victorian period, was often accessed via a staircase-ladder (as seen in the image below).  Remarking on the homes of agricultural labourers’ in Suffolk, Wilson Fox notes that, ‘In Barrow a number of cottages have no staircase but a rickety ladder, up and down which a woman has somehow to drag her children’.[10]

I have not lived up to it - Helen Vendler
LRB piece on Gerard Manley Hopkins:
These letters present, as the editors say in their introduction, ‘the priest, the poet, the playful friend, the dutiful critic, the observer of the beauties of the world, the speculative thinker, the experimenter, the linguist, the master of prosody, the anguished self-analyst and the loving man’. I would add to this list the fastidious aesthete (seen especially in his remarks on the use and misuse of language and in his corrections of others’ verse) and the intemperate dogmatist

for the Journals, 'fastidious aesthete' is right.
Although it has seemed regrettable to some readers that Hopkins grafted religious sestets onto octaves of natural beauty, it must be acknowledged that if he had led a different life, his penetrating sense-perceptions would even so have had to be presented to, and mediated by, his intellectual preoccupations (which, in that alternative life, might have been philosophical rather than religious). In any case, the two aspects – the senses and the intellect – would still have had to struggle into stand-offs, reconciliations, suspensions – the very things that happen in the religious poems.

Correct, and again, 'penetrating sense-perceptions' is a useful phrase.

On GMH's Scotism:
Scotus’s argument that there was a ‘thisness’, a *haecceitas*, in each separate creature confirmed the way Hopkins intuitively perceived the world, as abounding in individual difference.

Reminds me I put together a playlist called on god alone knows what sort of misbegotten inspiration Rex Fabarum - The Ecceity of Cresacre More'.
This is an effortful thing to do– to turn an object into an authentic symbol by synthesising all its separate qualities into a single whole: it is the most strenuous act of the poetic mind.

is inscape the creation of symbol though? I don't think it is. it's the expression of the 'thisness' (again) of a thing, of a thing in a moment (see his descriptions of the sky and of water).
