A Bemerton Anthology
Eleven poems of George Herbert selected by Barbara Murray, and
twenty-one poems by Barbara Murray. With drawings by Guy Ottewell
of Bemerton near Salisbury in England, where George Herbert was
parish priest from 1630 to 1633.
Most of [Barbara Murray's] poems are, as true poetry is,
driven by real feeling and crafted out of surprisingly found words.
The first few . . . seem the most necessitated,
meant, in any language; beside them, many other poems seem to be
acts of play that could have been left undone.
6 x 9 in., 43 pages, drawings, color cover. 2010.
