Did Margaret exist?/Fall

A bit late to be answering the previous comment, but no, Hopkins said the poem was "not based on a real incident".

By the way, although I'm sure Hopkins would have been happy to use an Americanism, "fall" was used as a term for the season alongside "autumn" from the 17th century in Britain, although by the 19th it had rather gone out of use (unfortunately -- I am English, but I much prefer "fall" to "autumn"), so its use in the poem could be either American or slightly archaic.

is a good website if you’re looking to get your essay written for you. You can also request things like research papers or dissertations. It’s really convenient and helpful. If you’ve got something very last-minute then it can be a little risky but either way it’s probably better than anything you can throw together .
