The Country Parson; The Temple

By John N. Wall; George Herbert | Go to book overview
Save to active project


In recent years, there has been a strong revival of interest in Herbert. What follows is in no sense inclusive, but instead an annotated guide to the works referred to in the text, as well as those I have found particularly helpful in coming to grips with Herbert's life and works. For a fuller listing of studies relating to Herbert, see John R. Roberts, George Herbert: An Annotated Bibliography of Modern Criticism, 1905-1974 (Columbia : University of Missouri Press, 1978). See also Jerry Leath Mills, "Recent Studies in Herbert," English Literary Renaissance 6 (1976): 105-18); Samuel and Dorothy Tannenbaum, George Herbert: A Concise Bibliography (New York: Tannenbaum, 1946); and The New Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature, Vol. I, ed. George Watson (Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 1974), cols. 1201-06.


The standard biography is now that of Amy Charles, A Life of George Herbert (Ithaca, N. Y.: Cornell University Press, 1977). See also Marchette Chute, Two Gentle Men: The Lives of George Herbert and Robert Herrick (London: Secker & Warburg, 1960); and Joseph Summers, George Herbert: His Religion and Art (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1968). Early biographies include Barnabas Oley's Preface to Herbert's Remains (London: For Timothy Garthwait, 1652); and Izaac Walton's Life (1670; reprinted Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1973). Studies of Herbert's biography include Robert E. Reiter, "George Herbert and his Biographers," Cithara, 9 (1970); 18-31; and David Novarr, The Making of Walton's Lives (Ithaca, N. Y.: Cornell University Press, 1958).
