Summary
Jeffrey Hammond's study of the funeral elegies of early New England reassesses a body of poems whose importance in their own time has been obscured by neglect in ours. Hammond reconstructs the historical, theological and cultural contexts of these poems to shed new light on the emotional dimension of Puritanism
