Reviews - What do customers think about Jeremy Taylor: Selected Works (Classics of Western Spirituality)?
An astonishing prose stylist Dec 5, 2000
Jeremy Taylor deserves a wider audience than those who are interested only in Christian classics.
He is also a prose stylist of the first water. Read him, and you will see where DeQuincey got his chops. As he warms to the solemn themes about which he writes, his sentences are like great rivers of poetic and exalted language. His experience as a preacher also makes him a great master of the -sound- of words.
