In George Herbert and His Times, A. G. Hyde unfolds the biography of Herbert while showing the relation of Herbert’s work in his own and later times. It begins with a short introduction on the state of poetry in the seventeenth century. Hyde then proceeds to document Herbert’s early life and education, his political career, and his life as a theologian, poet, and priest. Filled with numerous portraits and illustrations, Hyde takes an in-depth look at Herbert’s work and contextualizes the poetry that continues to inspire readers today.
