Review:

Mention in The Bookseller (The Bookseller)

"[This is] the first book to focus on Morissey's lyrical output."
-Publishing News
(Publishing News)

mention in Times higher Education Supplement, 4 June 2009

"Hopps manages to tell Moz's life story in a way that educates even the most hardcore fans (like me). By comparing the artist to Romantic poets and incorporating references to film and other art forms, Hopps examines the former Smiths frontman with a critical eye and treats him as one of the most talented singer/songwriters of the last century. (And he is, isn't he?) Dive in, grab a highlighter and savor the plentiful footnotes."
-Whitney Matheson, USA Today's PopCandy
"Hopps gives [Morrissey] plenty of passionate, well-informed attention in The Pagaent of His Bleeding Heart,a stylish and seductive hardcover from Continuum that reflects the loveand devotion of its author to the subject's worldview and musicalexpression. This is not a rote biography or analysis of the shebeensand spielers with collaborators, but an ideal inquiry into theaesthetic and forces which shape Morrissey's lyrics, persona, and owninfluence on worldwide music culture."
-KEXP, Seattle, WA
"The best book-length explication of Morrissey's peculiar genius I've come across. Acute when it does address the music, it focuses mostly on M's lyrical and vocal strategies (coyness, flirtation, caesuras and suggestive trailings away, irruptions of non-sense such as animalistic/Tourettic/comedic growls, ascent into nonverbal raptures of yodeling falsetto), then explores how these particular ways with words announce and embody a particular way of walking through the world; a life stance and ethic. Hopps managed to convince me that there's hidden depths and often-missed mischief secreted within the later work's deceptive slightness and can't-be-arsed-ness. A majorly illuminating work." — Simon Reynolds



"It's the best book-length explication of Morrissey's peculiar genius I've come across." Simon Reynolds

(Simon Reynolds)

"Hopps puts Morrissey, who he describes as pop's greatest disturbance,in the same tradition as Oscar Wilde and the Romantics, for none ofwhom is a simple or literal reading possible." Reggie Chamberlain-King, http://iheartau.com/reviews/morrissey-the-pageant-of-his-bleeding-heart-by-dr-gavin-hopps/

"Claiming that Morrissey is the most literary singer in the historyof British popular music, and thus a serious artist working in a mediumwidely considered trivial, Hopps (theology, U. of St. Andrews, Scotland)compares his work to a number of canonical writers, among them Larkin,Beckett, Wilde, Hardy, and Christina Rossetti." http://www.entrepreneur.com/tradejournals/article/205550381.html
