The Complete English Poems
Penguin Adult, 2004 M10 7 - 460 páginas
George Herbert combined the intellectual and the spiritual, the humble and the divine, to create some of the most moving devotional poetry in the English language. His deceptively simple verse uses the ingenious arguments typical of seventeenth-century metaphysical poets, and unusual imagery drawn from musical structures, the natural world and domestic activity to explore a mosaic of Biblical themes. From the wit and wordplay of The Pulley and the formal experimentation of Easter Wings and Paradise , to the intense, highly personal relationship between man and God portrayed in The Collar and Redemption , the works collected here show the transcendental power of divine love.
