Overview

Studies in Religious Poetry of the Seventeenth Century by W. L. Doughty

""Hence these studies are analytical and descriptive, rather than critical. I have tried to let the writers speak for themselves, venturing from time to time to interrupt their monologue, and the reader is invited to do the same."" -- From the Preface
