Whatsoever was the father of a disease, an ill diet was the mother.–George Herbert, 1651

George Herbert was an English poet and orator, as well as an Anglican priest. Throughout his life, he wrote religious poems characterized by a precision of language and an ingenious use of imagery or conceits that was favored by the metaphysical school of poets. Some of Herbert‘s poems have endured as hymns, including “King of Glory, King of Peace” (Praise), “Let All the World in Every Corner Sing” (Antiphon) and “Teach me, my God and King” (The Elixir).
