This book explores the relationship between the poetry of George Herbert and the concept of divine inspiration rooted in devotional texts of the time. Clarke considers three very different treatises read and approved by Herbert: Savonarolas De Simplicitate Christianae Vitae, Juan de Valdess The Hundred and Ten Considerations, and Francois de Saless Introduction to the Devout Life.

These authors all saw literary production as implicit in a theological argument about the workings of the Holy Spirit. Clarke goes on to offer a new reading of many of Herberts poems, concluding that implanted in Herberts poetry are many well-established codes which to a seventeenth-century readership signified divine inspiration.
