The poem No worst there is none by Gerard Manley Hopkins expresses emotions people experience in life Hopkins shares his own cry of anguish because without God human kind has to suffer through life People can only depend on God but when God is not around they have to suffer the depressing emotions that come with life In the beginning of the poem the speaker pities himself He wants Gods consoling support but is not receiving it The speaker feels that there is nothing more superior then God because God can help through hard times After questioning God the speaker relates to the rest of human kind and at the end he states his solution for the pains that people have to endure In the beginning of the poem the speaker tells about his life He shows his feelings of inferiority when he states No worst there is none because he feels shame He believes that there is nothing more worse than any of his pain His new pangs of shame are brought out more outrageously than the forepangs Pitched past pitch of grief More pangs will schooled at forepangs wilder wring Pitched is the feeling of grief already there and the pitch of grief is the present grief The speaker is emotional because his new pain is being piled on top of his old unresolved pain The meaning of schooled is that the pain had already been trained to be there in other words the pain cannot be changed He is very depressed and asks God directly Comforter where where is your comforting He asks for Gods comfort because he is not receiving it This shows that the pain is very intense because he too questions the Virgin Mary Mary mother of us where is your relief Virgin Mary is supposed to be the sympathetic one and the speaker doesnt understand why her sympathy is not shown to him He feels very emotional
