George Herbert wrote, but never published, some of the very greatest English poetry, recording in a variety of forms his inner experiences of grief, recovery, hope, despair, anger, fulfilment and-- above all else--love. This volume, edited by John Drury, collects Herbert's complete poetry, including such classics of English devotional poetry as "The Altar," "Easter-Wings," and "Love." It also includes the verse Herbert wrote in Latin, newly translated into English by Victoria Moul.
