Four Ways to Read Herbert: "the text, itself" (one poem at a time); the text itself and its shape (selected poems like "The Altar" and "Easter Wings"); figurally or typologically (the text and its anti-text read synchronically); typologically and historically (the text and its anti-text in sequence diachronically)

A famous "stand-alone poem": "The Collar" (Donne-like voice and conflict with vocation); "Denial" (musical metaphor--rhyme as spiritual and bodily harmony; discord = failed rhyme)

A famous "shaped poem": "Easter Wings" (míse en page in first edition; míse en page in GH MS)
