Categories: Literary Criticism
This volume presents the work of two poets linked by the tribute of creative imitation gratefully paid by Vaughan to Herbert. Read side by side, as this one volume collection makes possible, the artists' verse fully reveal their individual powers, even as the complex nature of Vaughan's use of Herbert's imaginative example is thrown into greater relief. The book contains the complete English poetry of Herbert, his prose treatise, The Country Parson, the complete text of Vaughan's Silex Scintillans, including all material in both the 1650 and 1655 editions, plus a selection from Vaughan's early secular poetry. Louis Martz's introduction and commentary help bring the religious controversies of the age into focus, and the text also features chronologies of the lives of the two men, and suggestions for further readings.

Unto a ballad I shall sing

Of all the wonders happening there
The strangest hap befell
Upon a famous Aprile morn,
