schema:reviewBody""The recent discovery of two manuscripts by Thomas Traherne has sparked renewed interest in the seventeenth century writer and a reappraisal of his significance not only as a poet but as a theologian and philosopher engaged in the political and social realities of his day. Happiness and Holiness includes extracts from the newest manuscripts, from better known works and from fragments and notebooks - all of Traherne's known works are represented, making this the most varied and complete collection of his writings available in a single volume." "Here we see Traherne, who died at the age of 37, in all his creative genius as a visionary poet, political controversialist, contemplative, teacher, parson, amateur scientist, friend and benefactor. This volume offers for the first time an introduction to the full range of Traherne's work, and opens doors on the breadth and depth of Traherne's theology and its surprising resonance with our own times." "Traherne is best known for his poetry of innocence, nature and joy, yet what we have known and loved best from his writings reveals only part of the picture. Happiness and Holiness allows a much richer and fuller understanding of Traherne to emerge."--Jacket."
