Abstract: Much as George Herbert's early biographers idealized him as a devoted celebrant of Britain's national church, so they portrayed him, at least in his last years, as correspondingly estranged from "the world." Izaak Walton describes how Herbert's embracing of the one required his reluctant but final rejection of the other.
