Chapter: English Literature in the Early Seventeenth Century
George Herbert wrote a lot of those wacky "poems with stanzas that are shaped like objects." For instance, "The Altar," on paper, is shaped like an altar. Well, technically, it looks more like a spool of thread, or maybe an anvil, but whatever. He literally made pictures with words. Such is not the case, however, with "Redemption," presumably because making the lines form a picture of Jesus was just way too hard.
