This insightful and carefully researched study of the poet George Herbert (1593-1633) traces his progress from aristocratic Cambridge scholar to his final years as a country parson in Wiltshire and examines the poems in the light of the spiritual struggles this progress involved. No longer under the shadow of John Donne, George Herbert emerges as the creator of a body of innovative poems distinguished by their unparalleled technical skill, their lyricism, warmth and humanity. They are poems that establish him as England's finest devotional poet.
