    This is an excellent book, which I read a long time ago. This time I bought it as a gift. For anyone interested in English religious poetry it will be of great interest.

    I am not sufficiently versed in the religious literature of contemplation of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries to evaluate this book on its own terms but I found it clear and informative. A more extended discussion of recent meditative poetry would have been preferable for someone with my interests.

    This is a superb book because it gives so much detail on the subject of Religious Poetry. Poets like Donne, Southwell, Crashaw, Herbert and many others--are shown in the evolutionary stages of Religious poetry leading up to the 18th,19th,20th century poets. The way Martz sets up the book is a great hinderence to the reader---the chapters are setup so that there maybe 5 chapters to every 1 chapter. I call it a book of many books myself because it is so drawn out that way. All of the facts are interesting from the beginning of Religious poetry and what it was used for early within the Middle Ages--From Jesuit Practices to Prayer Books used by the nobles--soon to be used by everyone starting late 17th early 18th century.The rest of the book is analyzing the poetry of Donne, Herbert and Southwell and how they interpereted the Jesuit,Catholic,and or Protestant ways of Meditational handbooks.The book is also split into two parts which makes it terribly long to read and or ever to get through. But you know what was coming up next with the way Martz sets up the book--it is like a Giant Domino Effect for Religious Poetry--each block you knock down the closer you get to the end and you also see how each poet influenced one another time and time again.
