Odyssey Online

George Herbert

April 16, 2014 · No Comments

Writing in The Guardian Nicholas Lezard writes glowingly of John Drury’s new biography of George Herbert, Music at Midnight, the Life and Poetry of George Herbert. This is a book I’m sure we’ll have in the collection soon, and it is a nice opportunity to pause over George Herbert, who is, for many readers, a life-long reading excursion:

Some of the more recent book length critical commentaries on Herbert in ODY include Heart-work : George Herbert and the Protestant Ethic by Cristina Malcolmson, Invisible Listeners: Lyric Intimacy in Herbert, Whitman, and Ashbery by  Helen Vendler, and The Pulse of Praise: Form as a Second Self in the Poetry of George Herbert by Julia Carolyn Guernsey.
