Paperback
Thomas Traherne was a 17th century spiritual writer. This is a selection of his poetry and prose chosen by Denise Inge. The volume also contains some biographical detail and historical context, as well as the story of the discovery of his work.

- Publisher Thomas Traherne was one of the greatest poets and spiritual writers of the seventeenth century. Long overshadowed by fellow clergymen John Donne and George Herbert, his work is becoming increasingly recognized and appreciated for its singular voice. During his lifetime, only one of Traherne's theological works was published, followed by a second a year after his death. But for a series of recent, timely discoveries, the poet would have faded completely from view. Some of his newly discovered work is published for the first time in this volume, alongside familiar and much loved poetry and prose. This selection introduces a poet whose work, at its best, offers an exhilarating glimpse of the glory of heaven. Book jacket.
