Description: Sir Thomas Browne is one of the supreme stylists of the English language: a coiner of words and spinner of phrases of a near Shakespearean fecundity; the wielder of a weird and wonderful erudition; an inquiring spirit in the mold of Montaigne. Browne was an inspiration to Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Thomas De Quincy, as well as to W.G. Sebald, and his unique voice is both quirky and sonorous, an echo chamber that is full of enchantment. This new edition of Browne's two most enduring and beloved works, Religio Medici, in which he weighs and ponders the relation between his medical profession and his profession of the Christian faith, and Urne-Burial, an exquisite meditation on mortality, has been put together by the distinguished Renaissance Scholar and bestselling author of Will in the World, Stephen Greenblatt, and Ramie Targoff. It includes an extensive introduction and annotations that will help readers find their way into the extraordinary world of Sir Thomas Browne.
