For more than 200 years, Thomas Traherne's Centuries of Meditations was undiscovered and unpublished. The manuscript passed through many hands before finally being compiled into a book by bookseller and scholar BERTRAM DOBELL (1842-1914) in 1908. Centuries is a collection of poems written to express the rapture of life lived in accordance with God. Yet Dobell is careful to state that even though Traherne was a clergyman, there is plenty of beauty to be found in his poetry that does not require specific belief in Christianity or in God. Readers of many ages and persuasions will be touched by Traherne's passages on love and belonging.

Centuries of Meditations is a devotional manual from the English literary Thomas Traherne; undiscovered for over 200 years, this manuscript was first published in the early 20th century. During his lifetime Thomas Traherne was primarily famed for his verses, which gained a fair degree of recognition among readers of his era. A deeply religious man, Traherne embarked on reflections pertinent to Christian faith, such as the soul of man, and how believers attain closeness with the Lord God. A naturalist, Traherne frequently alludes to the beauty and harmony of nature which he viewed as the pure and untrammeled embodiment of God's creation. Centuries of Meditation is a compilation of devotional thoughts, arranged into five distinct centuries. At times contemplative, at times resemblant of a sermon, we find here Traherne at his most poignant. The nature of man's soul and its connection to the divine, sees the author take on mystical and deeply thoughtful lines of expression.

Among the literary innovations of the seventeenth century -- a period of rich development in English prose -- was the resolve. Generally of religious inspiration, the resolve was intended as the instrument of reform of private and public morals to assist in attaining individual perfection and in establishing the ideal Christian state. John L. Lievsay has brought together an anthology of resolves from the pens of eighteen writers, some -- like Bishop Joseph Hall and Owen Feltham -- familiar names to students of English literature, and others virtually unknown. Despite its popularity as a literary form during the seventeenth century the resolve quickly declined in influence and died an untimely death. Lievsay sketches the history of this once well-known form and provides critical and comparative evaluations of the writers and their works. Until now, the only resolve writer anthologized since the seventeenth century has been Owen Feltham -- admittedly the best of the "resolvers" but, according to Lievsay, not greatly superior to Hall, Daniel Tuvill, or Francis Rous. Together, the selections in this volume offer a comprehensive view of a significant yet little-known development in English letters.
