Price: $5.99 USD. Words: 21,180. Language: English. Published: October 23, 2012. Categories: Essay » Literature, Nonfiction » Reference » Study guides
In 1648, Robert Herrick published his life’s work in a volume of poetry called 'Hesperides: Or, The Works Both Humane & Divine'. Hesperides contains 1,400 poems; 74 of them mention a woman called Julia, which prompts an oft asked question: who was Julia? Nothing is known about her. This book examines Herrick’s life and poetry and comes to a startling conclusion as to the real identity of Julia.
