In George Herbert , profound religious sensibility is richly allied with a playful wit and with literary and musical gifts of the highest order.
Herbert experimented brilliantly with a remarkable variety of forms, from hymns and sonnets to "pattern poems", the shapes of which reveal their subjects.
