Robert Herrick, then, had two "bad fathers," both of whom symbolically mutilated him--one by abandoning him, and one by using money to extend the poet's dependency and deny him his autonomy, his opportunity for self-creation.
Herrick's Royalism can scarcely be doubted, and the notion of the king as the father of his subjects is traditional, but monarchs make problematical paternal surrogates: their extraordinary power forces the subject into a regressive child-parent relationship, yet despite that power, like natural fathers kings are subject to "Times trans-shifting" (H-1, line 9).
Herrick's poem defends against the fact that it is actually Charles who needs to be rescued by imagining that the king has again taken up his former role of rescuer of his children/subjects.

 Ponkapog Papers - ROBERT HERRICK   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-11)
Robert Herrick was descended in a direct line from an ancient family in Lincolnshire, the Eyricks, a mentionable representative of which was John Eyrick of Leicester, the poet's grandfather, admitted freeman in 1535, and afterward twice made mayor of the town.
Herrick personally placed the "copy" in the hands of John Williams and Francis Eglesfield, and if he were over-persuaded to allow them to print unfit verses, and to observe no method whatever in the contents of the book, the discredit is none the less his.
Herrick was firmly convinced that each new lyric was a stone added to the pillar of his fame, and perhaps his sense of relief was tinged with indefinable regret when he found himself suddenly deprived of his benefice.

 Marriage, celibacy, and ritual in Robert Herrick's 'Hesperides.'
Herrick's epithalamia, Dubrow observes, are populated by reluctant brides, and she argues that this antipathy toward consummation "destabilizes" Herrick's marriage poems.'(9) Dubrow stops short, however, of assessing the ideological significance of this distinctive feature of Herrick's epithalamia.
Herrick presents the disrobing of Jane Pulteney as the removal of the woman's floral garments, a literal de-flowering.(21) He thus instructs the "whimpring" bridesmaids to rehearse the role of the bridegroom, to inflict a sexualized physical loss upon their friend.
Herrick's focus on the daughter and her female companions is unique: the women are peripheral to both the Judges account and subsequent treatments of the narrative.

 Robert Herrick
Herrick's amazing art refuses to engage in Mannerist intellectual gyrations, and seems to leap a century ahead toward the balance and restraint of what Sypher calls the "Late Baroque." However, he never indulges in the spectacular demonstrations of power that a Baroque author like Milton displays.
Herrick might be paired with Herbert as a young man whose poetic talents were somewhat at odds with his career at a country parsonage.
Herrick's aesthetic of a "wild civility" might be called an elitist aesthetic since it presupposes that the lady, poem, or other "work of art" will begin with a capacity to achieve the height of neoclassical decorum, control of appearances (the long-run effect of the courtier's emulation of correct models in Hoby/Castiglione).

 Lyrical Poems of Robert Herrick - Preface   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-11)
Herrick's directness of speech is accompanied by an equally clear and simple presentment of his thought; we have, perhaps, no poet who writes more consistently and earnestly with his eye upon his subject.
Herrick has his CONCETTI also: but they are in him generally true plays of fancy; he writes throughout far more naturally than these lyrists, who, on the other hand, in their unfrequent successes reach a more complete and classical form of expression.
With the error that regards Herrick as a careless singer is closely twined that which ranks him in the school of that master of elegant pettiness who has usurped and abused the name Anacreon; as a mere light-hearted writer of pastorals, a gay and frivolous Renaissance amourist.
