Product Description

Probably the greatest devotional poet in the English language, Herbert wrote in an intensely personal metaphysical style. Reading him, you realize you are in the presence of a Christ-imbued parson. Now his Latin verse has been newly translated by Victoria Moul. A few of his pieces have even been turned into hymns. 640 pages, softcover. Penguin.

A wonderful edition of Herbert's poetry, edited by his acclaimed biographer John Drury and including elegant new translations of his Latin verse

It also includes the verse Herbert wrote in Latin, newly translated into English by Victoria Moul.
