This volume assembles Inge Leimberg’s major contributions
to the
study of John Donne, George Herbert, Richard Crashaw, and
Henry Vaughan, as well as of later poets such as Walt
Whitman, Gerard Manley Hopkins, and T. S. Eliot. Most of the
essays were originally written in German and have now been
translated. They are presented in the order of original
appearance and reflect the evolution of Leimberg’s thought
on things metaphysical in English literature from the early
Enlightenment to classical modernism.

Inge Leimberg is Professor Emerita of English
Literature at Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster,
where she taught from 1973 to 1992. As a teacher and a
scholar, two subjects have interested her most: Shakespeare
and Metaphysical Poetry.
