My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"File bright our rusty brains, and sharpen them."
More than a year ago, while reading Harold Bloom's anthology of American religious poetry, I greatly enjoyed the selections from Edward Taylor, a Puritan poet, for their surprising and fun metaphors and images. I searched and found this out-of-print volume. I don't know that I needed to read all of the poems of Edward Taylor, a great selection would have sufficed. But I did enjoy them and broke up the reading of this comprehensive volume by reading other poetry over the last year.
"Woes Pickled in Revenges Powdering Trough"
I delight in the idea of pickled woes!
