 THOMAS VAUGHAN - LoveToKnow Article on THOMAS VAUGHAN   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Vaughan regarded himself as a philosopher of nature, and although he certainly sought the universal solvent, his published writings deal rather with magic and mysticism than with technical alchemy.
Vaughan was probably, although it is by no means certain, not the famous adept known as Eirenaeus Philalethes, who was alleged to have found the philosopher's stone in America, and to whom the Introitus Apertus in Occlusum Regis Palatium (1667) and other writings are ascribed.
The author, whose name was given as Diana Vaughan, claimed to be a descendant of Thomas and to possess fampy papers which showed amongst other marvels that he had made a pact with Lucifer, and had helped to found freemasonry as a Satanic society.

Henry Vaughan was born at Newton in the beautiful valley of the Usk, not far from Brecon.
Henry was one of twins, and many aspects of his life and thought were closely intertwined with those of his brother Thomas.
Henry Vaughan's name does not appear amongst the matriculation records of the university, but there seems no need to doubt the information he himself gave to Anthony Wood, that was a student at Jesus College, but "stayed not att Oxford to take any degree".

Before the end of the next year (1647), Vaughan, apparently, had settled down to the life of the country, and wrote from “Newton by Usk” a dedication to Olor Iscanus.
The bulk of the work clearly belongs to the period before Silex was written, and reflects the atmosphere of the 1646 volume, with its allusions to debts and gay living, and its complimentary verses upon secular writers, D’Avenant, John Fletcher, “the ever-memorable Mr.
Perhaps the poet counted Charles’s reign as over with the crushing defeat of 1645, and so the poem may be contemporary with others of its kind and not with the poems of Silex.

Henry Vaughan belongs to the mystical school, but his poetry rules his theories.
Henry Vaughan was then nearly thirty years younger than George Herbert, whom he consciously and intentionally imitates.
Vaughan believes with Wordsworth and some other great men that this is not our first stage of existence; that we are haunted by dim memories of a former state.

Both in theme and form, Vaughan composed his verse to reflect the impact of the Jews on current changes and the function they were to fulfil--conversion to Christianity and preparation for the Royalist eschaton.
In this respect, the conversion of the Jews was necessary, and Vaughan examined the imminent prospect of the eschaton in "The Dawning" and "The Day of Judgement."[34] However, during the writing of Silex Scintillans II between 1651-1654, the eschaton was not realized, the Cromwellians remained in power, and the Jews did not convert to Christianity.
For Vaughan, the delay in the coming of Christ, and the subsequent continuance of Cromwellian authority were caused by the Jews' refusal to convert.

 Theology Today - Vol 41, No. 3 - October 1984 - BOOK REVIEW - The Almighty Wall: The Architecture of Henry Vaughan
Despite the fact that he was universally revered by his profession and despite his notable achievements which certainly constitute a landmark of the late and most dramatic phase of the neo-Gothic style, Vaughan was soon forgotten by the public and denigrated by articulate modernists as a mere revivalist and therefore unworthy of praise.
For Vaughan, who was a devout Anglo-Catholic attending daily mass at St. John the Evangelist in Boston, religion and architecture were as inseparable as two sides of a coin.
Vaughan's life was almost completely wrapped up in his art, and he was an influence rather than a personality in American architecture.

It was the specific style of Vaughan's buildings with their multivocal meanings that attracted the decision-makers rather than an effort to control costs.
Vaughan's work became the prototype for much of American ecclesiastical architecture from the 1890s to 1930 -- a mania which literally covered America with finely crafted structures based on English models.
(33) Vaughan handled the transformation of a space for Anglican worship to a collegiate chapel by lowering the end window, replacing the altar and reredos with oak stalls, and by placing the pulpit on axis with the central aisle (later moved to the side).

 [EMLS 1.2 (August 1995): 8.1-7] Review of Henry Vaughan
As Thomas and Henry Vaughan were twin brothers, nearly identical in appearance, Davies (herself the mother of twins) conjectures that individuation posed special challenges for them.
Thus, Henry's poetic apprenticeship in London, when he self-consciously imitated the cavalier verses of Jonson and Habington, represented a failed attempt at "twinning." It was not until later, during the anguish of the Civil Wars, that Henry discovered the devotional poetry of George Herbert and responded to it as to a revelation.
Davies concludes: "Vaughan's 'mystical' poems are the testaments of a person in a state of self-induced sleep starvation." She continues in this vein to ascribe Vaughan's night fears to "an anxiety about the loss of control that comes with sleep" and to a regressive "separation-anxiety," the childhood fear of separation from parents.

        Henry Vaughan was born in 1621 to Thomas Vaughan and Denise Morgan in Newton-upon-Usk in Breconshire, Wales.
Vaughan returned to Breconshire in 1642 as secretary to Judge Lloyd, and later began to practice medicine.
Vaughan's inspired religious poetry, on which his reputation chiefly rests, is indeed reminiscent of Herbert's The Temple.

 Stevie Davies - Henry Vaughan - Reviews
Stevie Davies's book is the first full-length life of Henry Vaughan genuinely inspired by and equal to its subject, sensitive to every dimension of the poetry this young man poured out during some five years of battling through what we would now call a post-traumatic state.
It is helpful to remember that Vaughan's greatest poems were written before the poet reached the age of thirty, and were largely envisioned out of doors or even, to go by the phrasing, actually composed on walks along the Usk or up the Allt, typically at sunrise or under the stars.
For instance, the fact that Vaughan was, in old age, unwilling to give money to his estranged daughter Catherine unless she would collect it from him in person, week by week, suggests to Davies that he may have harboured 'a desire to mortify her'.

 Henry Vaughan : Poems and Biography
Henry Vaughan is one of the best known of the English Metaphysical poets.
He acknowledged the deep inspiration he drew from the poet George Herbet but, in contrast to Herbert's praises of the institutional religion, Vaughan was more immediate and overtly mystical in his spirituality, describing ecstatic states of communion with the divine and a deep affinity for the natural world.
Henry Vaughan eventually settled into the life of a well-respected physician.

 Henry Vaughan: The Morning Watch
This poem by Henry Vaughan is an excellent example in English of a mystic's ecstatic utterances.
There is a specific experience referred to when Vaughan writes "This dew fell on my breast; / O how it bloods..." In states of mystical ecstacy, there is often a sensation of drinking a subtle, divinely sweet liquid.
Vaughan is reminding us that the soul is always -- always -- unhindered awareness and bliss.

 John Donne, George Herbert, Henry Vaughan: Religious Metaphysical poetry.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Some of the chief characteristics of Donne's style are: the abrupt opening of a poem with a surprising dramatic line; the use of colloquial diction; the ideas in the poem being presented as a logical and persuasive argument, the purpose of which is to aid his wooing, whether of a woman or God.
Vaughan said of Herbert, 'The blessed man whose holy life and verse gained many pious converts, of whom I am the least.' Vaughan's poetic debt to Herbert lies chiefly in his having borrowed a conceptual framework in which to structure and present his ideas.
Some of Vaughan's ideas even seem to have been borrowed from Herbert, but it is reasonable to suppose that he felt he was sharing the ideas, rather than stealing them.

 [EMLS SI 7 (May, 2001): 3.1-29] "The Virtue and Discipline" of Wrestling with God
Written three days after the death of Prince Henry, 6 November 1612, and referred by Ben Jonson as the poem that inspired Donne to write his epicede to match Herbert in obscurity, the sixty-six line poem opens with a series of questions and continues for the most part with more questions until line 59.
Scholarship has long attended to the devotional poems of Henry Vaughan, their meditative focus, their development as a series narrating a spiritual pilgrimage, and their relationship with prophecy.
Vaughan surely is not longing for the dark night of the soul, as Ross Garner views the poems in Silex Scintillans,[35] but his/their passage through such a night.

‘Mine enemies’, wrote Vaughan, ‘have washed their hands in the blood of my friends, my dearest and nearest relations.’ Henry’s twin, Thomas, wrote that their younger brother’s death occurred in a ‘glorious employment’ – a phrase that may suggest that William was killed in cold blood for his opinions.
