    1. I'm not a huge fan of this era of literature, and yet some how i have accumulated a heaping helping of books from it. and because i'm hopelessly anal, i'm determined to read them as neither an expert, nor a fan, what was i looking for? at the very least, insight; at the most, to be excited by this poetry and these poets who clearly are a part of the english language canon.got the insight - thanks to the essays (well, some of them, at least). didn't get much of the excitement. oh well.

    2. A long time ago, a good friend suggested I read "The Search," one of Herbert's lesser-known poems. It is still one of my favorites. So simple.
