Richard Crashaw is unique among the English devotional poets of the 17th century for his exhuberant religious sensibility and extravagant imagery, in stark contract to his puritan contemporaries. R.V. Young explains the eccentric quality of Crashaw's poetry and how it is linked to the writing of the Spanish Golden Age.
