Poetry and Divine Motion
This introductory chapter begins by setting out the purpose of the book, which is to explore George Herbert’s success in creating the role for himself of the Reformation poet in unpromising 17th-century circumstances. It then discusses the theological views of George Herbert, critics of Herbert, and issues in literary theory and theology in the 17th century.
