5.0 out of 5 starsOutstanding!Jan. 30 2003
By Brentley - Published on Amazon.com
Excellent for poetry lovers everywhere. Hecht's essay alone is worth the price of the book. Herbert's poetry still delights, challenges, exalts, reveals, inspires after almost 400 years. T.S. Eliot said first rank Christian poetry must express how a Christian actually feels in relation to loving Jesus, not how one wants to feel or ought to feel. In this, Herbert excels almost all religious poetry in the canon.
