Traherne's Poems of Felicity (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Traherne's Poems of Felicity It has been said that the ms. Is in the hand of the poet's brother Philip; and it seems worth while to collect here such facts as have come to light concerning him. Search has been made only in the more accessible sources, and doubtless it would be possible by more extended investigation to discover further facts; but for the present it seems sufficient to record those already discovered. This will give any subsequent searcher some indication of possible sources of information, which may perhaps be found to throw light also on the more important life of the poet himself. In the poem entitled On Leaping over the Moon the poet speaks of a similar experience which had befallen his brother.
