George Herbert (3 April 1593 – 1 March 1633) was a Welsh-born English poet and orator. Herberts poetry is associated with the writings of the metaphysical poets, and he is recognized as a pivotal figure: enormously popular, deeply and broadly influential, and arguably the most skillful and important British devotional lyricist.Born into an artistic and wealthy family, Herbert received a good education that led to his admission in 1609 as a student at Trinity College, Cambridge, Herbert excelled in languages, rhetoric and music. He went to university with the intention of becoming a priest, but when eventually he became the Universitys Public Orator he attracted the attention of King James I and may well have seen himself as a future Secretary of State.

In 1624 and briefly in 1625 he served in Parliament. Never a healthy man, he died of consumption at the early age of 39.
