Description

First published in 1995, this title provides the reader with a compendium of useful information for any reader of George Herbert to have at hand. It includes key biographical information, situates the poetry in its historical and cultural context, and, where appropriate, explains theological concepts and traditions which have a direct bearing on the verse. The aim throughout is to enhance understanding and appreciation, without being exhaustive.

A George Herbert Companion will be of most use to general readers and undergraduate students coming to this poetry for the first time, and will interest students of Anglican Caroline theology and hymnology.

Table of Contents

Preface; Research in Herbert: Tools and Procedures; A Herbert Chronology; Herbert’s Life; Herbert’s Works; A Herbert Dictionary; Selected Bibliography
