Abstract

Discusses the life and works of the poet Robert Herrick (1591‐1674). Notes that by 1625 Herrick was evidently well known enough to be ranked with the great writers of the age in a contemporary elegy on the death of James I where he is compared with Jonson and Drayton. Concludes that Herrick′s best poetry speaks as clearly to modern readers as it did to his own contemporaries.
