I have endeavored to demonstrate that the poetic proportion—great wealth in little space—that Keats devised in response to an array of personal, social, and aesthetic circumstances substantially influenced both Tennyson and Hopkins, who adapted Keats’s unique Romanticism to suit their own artistic imperatives (which were shaped, of course, by different socio-historical moments). Neither Tennyson nor Hopkins dismantled Keats’s original marriage of containment to profusion, but even before Hopkins’s death in 1889, new cultural and literary trends were challenging one or the other component of that essential luscious ratio.
