Richard Austin Borthwick recites the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins, performs alongside the music of pianist Val Rutter, and also does healing through Cranio-Sacral Therapy and Massage.

Learn more abRichard Austin recites the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins.out his story:

Richard Austin grew up in the same corner of England as Gerard Manley Hopkins. Thus blessed with the correct native accent, he now recites Hopkins poetry all over the world. He discovered this poetry as a young man, when the poignant verses of Hopkins soothed his soul in the face of personal tragedy.

He trained as an actor, worked extensively in theatre and television, and devoted himself to memorizing Hopkins poetry. In 2003, he released an audio CD of his Hopkins recordings, entitled Back to Beauty’s Giver.

Although his inspiring performances and master classes are in demand at Hopkins societies, conferences, universities, and colleges around the globe, he still enjoys reciting poetry with new friends at small gatherings.

Richard Austin also performs as part of the Golden Echo duo: Val Rutter combines her classical pianist skills with Richard’s recitations for a beautiful blend of words and music.

In addition, Richard offers healing through Cranio-Sacral Therapy and Massage.

  1. Dear Richard (if I may),

    As Director of the Center for Faith & Culture at Aquinas College in Nashville, Tennessee, I’d like to enquire with regard to your availability to perform a recital of Hopkins’s poetry in the Fall of 2016 or Spring of 2017. If you are available, could you let me know the stipend you would require?

    I’ve owned your CD for many years and have listened to it many times. Bravo!

    Sincerely,

    Joseph Pearce

  2. Terri Tomlinson says:

    I would love to purchase a copy of your cd. Hopkins is by far my favorite poet, and I enjoyed your rendition of God’s Granduer tremendously. You imbued the work with his spirit. Please let me know how I can purchase a copy.

    Thank you,

    Terri Tomlinson

  3. Sr Maureen Marston says:

    Dear Richard,
    I have been using ‘Back To Beauty’s Giver’ in my retreat work but
    It has gone astray and
    I need another copy. Is it still available for purchase?
    Please let me know.

  4. Nancy Dunham says:

    Dear Richard,
    Just a word of thanks for “Back to Beauty’s Giver”…Your kindness in facilitating my US purchase several years ago still warms my heart. You and Fr. Gerard are still most welcome companions on my journey!

    Blessings on you and the work!

  5. Rosemary Michelle Simpson says:

    Dear Richard,

    Since encountering G. M. Hopkins in a college course 50 years ago he has been one of my three favorite poets (the others are Rainer Maria Rilke and Emily Dickinson). Last night I had a dream in which Hopkins’ words “O the mind, mind has mountains” reverberated. Today I went looking for audio recordings of Hopkins and found some videos featuring your readings. This, in turn, sent me looking for your CD “Back to Beauty’s Giver”, in vain. Do you know of how I could obtain a copy, please?

    Thank you, and thank you for your gift of conveying Hopkins’ soul.

    Rosemary Michelle Simpson

  6. Jennifer Doede says:

    Dear Richard,
    I am teaching Hopkins’s poetry once again this term at Trinity Western University and wondering if you are available for a recitation. My students and colleagues loved your performance so much in 2014 when you came, so I’m hoping you might be able to perform once again!
