Restore thine Image, so much, by thy grace, / That thou may’st know mee, and I’ll turne my face.
Goodfriday, 1613, ll. 41–2.
John
Donne
The Oxford Book of English Mystical Verse
 
Chosen by D. H. S. Nicholson and A. H. E. Lee
 
Comprising 390 poems by 162 authors, this unique anthology strings together “such poems as contain intimations of a consciousness wider and deeper than the normal.” Spanning five centuries, every era of the great spiritualists is represented: from the Metaphysical Poets, like Donne and Traherne, to the Romantics, including Tennyson and Browning, to the Moderns, such as Yeats and Noyes.
