The Complete Works of George Herbert

Preparation for print publication of three volumes, along with the corresponding digital components, of the complete works of George Herbert (1593-1633), including translations of Herbert’s Latin and Greek works. (36 months)

GEORGE HERBERT: COMPLETE WORKS (GHCW) is a comprehensive scholarly edition under contract with Oxford University Press: three print volumes, with extensive textual and critical apparatus, and including original verse and prose translations of Herbert’s Latin and Greek works. Complementing the print edition is a parallel-text digital resource that captures all witnesses as archive-quality images presented alongside diplomatic transcriptions. The edited texts, apparatus, and translations are reserved for the print edition, while the digital complement captures the full textual record as a dynamic and robust searchable archive, preserving the whole of Herbert’s oeuvre for future generations of scholars, students, and general readers. The $300,000 in NEH funds sought here represent roughly 41% of the project’s total costs. The editors’ institutions are committed to providing the remaining 59%.
