George Herbert (1593-1633) is author of some of the loveliest and most profound verse in the English language. In this 1962 study, T. S. Eliot demonstrates affection, sympathy, and admiration for Herbert's work. It is one of Eliot's last critical works before his death in 1965. Illustrative quotations of Herbert's work are so judiciously selected by Eliot that William Empson considered this essay to 'make a kind of thumbnail anthology'.
A volume in the Writers and Their Work series, which draws upon recent thinking in English studies to introduce writers and their contexts. Each volume includes biographical material, an examination of recent criticism, a bibliography and a reappraisal of a major work by the writer.
