Summary

Like Season'd Timber explores new areas for the study of George Herbert. Essays offering new light on Herbert's biography and his relation to the arts are followed by studies of the less familiar works and of Herbert's relation to his poetic contemporaries. The last section of the book explores Herbert's influence on a number of major writers since the revival of interest in the early nineteenth century. Contributors include such major scholars of seventeenth-century literature as Joseph Holmes Summers, Jerome Mazzaro, and the late Amy M. Charles and also a range of younger scholars with specialized backgrounds in the subjects of their particular essays.
