 Moulton's Library of Literary Criticism -- George Herbert
Herbert's life was itself the noblest of his poems, and while it had the beauty of his verses it had their quaintnesses as well.
Herbert was a younger son of a large family; he lost his father early, and his mother, a devout, tender, imperious woman, decided, partly out of piety and partly out of distrust of his power to make his own way in the world, that he should be provided for in the Church.
Herbert's imagery shows much over-elaboration, after the manner of Donne, who had been a close friend of his mother, and of his own youth: but his verses are free from the dulness of most of Vaughan's poems and the extravagance of many of Crashaw's.

While his “soul repairs to her devotion” (as he prays), Herbert imagines himself to “intombe” his “flesh” in the church, where he is surrounded by gravestones and memorials (the modern reader might be surprised to find that these are inside the church).

 George Herbert
Characters: Herbert's persona is almost indistinguishable from his historical one, except that some of these poetic situations clearly are fanciful, and the personae of "Love," "God," "heart," arise from the medieval allegorical tradition but transcend it by means of Herbert's dexterous and surprising ability to make them psychological forces as well as metaphysical phenomena.
Herbert's work went through 13 editions between the first in 1633 and 1679, a total of over 20,000 copies (small for a modern press run but enormous for this era!).
Since Herbert did not live to see his work through the printing process, but rather consigned this task to a friend in London, it also is possible that even the first printed edition might not reflect his actual intentions.

 George Herbert's Approach to God
Herbert does indeed have much to teach us about a thoughtful and self-critical spirituality that does (after all) value creation, incarnation, sacraments, liturgy, and the Catholic and Evangelical tradition of the Church, but at the same time, Herbert's spirituality provides a corrective to the dominant paradigm of contemporary spirituality.
In addition, Herbert is conscious that the essence of sin and evil is ultimately interior to humanity, that evil actions have their final source in corrupt hearts and minds; the poet is most aware of his own shortcomings.
Herbert's confidence and trust in the God of grace and love led him to share in the same sort of intimacy that was characteristic of the relationship between Old Testament prophets like Jeremiah or psalmists like David and their God.
