Patricia Ball notes that the science of the first half of the nineteenth century centered upon the collection, classification and close observation of phenomena. It was, in short, obsessed with detail. However, Hopkins' unique obsession with detail stemmed not only from Ruskin's emphasis on recording detail, but also from his stress on seizing perceptions of beauty in the natural world to preserve fleeting reality In fact, they appear to be familiar terms to Hopkins. We know that Hopkins was still absorbed at the time by the Greek literature and philosophy he had studied for the Classical & exam he passed with honours at Oxford in June of 1867. In a February 12, 1868 letter to his friend, Baillie, he spoke of his preference for Plato and Aristotle over modern philosophers.
