The Hopkins Touch offers the first portrait in over two decades of the most powerful man in Roosevelt´s administration. David Roll shows how Harry Hopkins, an Iowa-born social worker who had been an integral part of the New Deal´s implementation, became the linchpin in FDR´s - and America´s - relationships with Churchill and Stalin, and spoke with an authority second only to the president´s. Gaunt, nearly spectral, and malnourished following an operation to remove part of his stomach, the newly widowed Hopkins accepted the president´s invitation to move into the White House in 1940 and remained Roosevelt´s closest advisor, speechwriter, sounding board, and friend nearly to the end. Between 1940 and 1945, with incomparable skill and indefatigable determination, Hopkins organized the Lend-Lease program and steered the president to prepare the public for war with Germany. He became FDR´s problem-solver and fixer, helping to smooth over crises, such as when the British refused to allow an invasion of Europe in 1943, enraging Stalin, who felt that the Soviet Union was carrying the military effort against the Nazis. Lacking an official title or a clear executive branch portfolio, Hopkins could take the political risks his boss could not, and proved crucial to maintaining personal relations among the Big Three. Beloved by some - such as Churchill, who believed that Hopkins ´´always went to the root of the matter´´ - and trusted by most - including the paranoid Stalin - there were nevertheless those who resented the influence of ´´the White House Rasputin´´. Based on newly available sources, The Hopkins Touch is an absorbing, substantial new work that offers a fresh perspective on the World War II era and the Allied leaders, through the life of the man who kept them on point until the war was won. 1.

Gerard Manley Hopkins was born in Essex, England, in 1844. During his lifetime, his work, at his own insistence, remained unpublished. Hopkins died in 1889, aged just 45, but it was not until 1918 that his work was first published and until 1930 that he first received acclaim. Here, Margaret Rawlings reads a selection of his finest work, including ´´Starlight Night´´, ´´Spring´´, ´´Pied Piper´´, and ´´Inversnaid´´. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Margaret Rawlings.

THE POETRY OF GERALD MANLEY HOPKINS. Gerald Manley Hopkins work was not celebrated until after his death when he then took his rightful place amongst leading Victorian poets.He had an individual lyrical style employed on subjects such as nature although his central theme for much of his work including his profoundly dark sonnets was religion and his dialogue with God.This was an intense and powerful relationship fuelled by his belief that he could never be worthy enough of God’s love despite his dedication and study as a Jesuit at Oxford.Cyril Cusack’s rendition of his work draws the light and shadow and makes for a fascinating audio experience. 1.
