    I have a definited biography on Cowper called George Ella. A great read where he quotes Cowper’s poems at length.

    your post reminded me of the hours I enjoyed reading about this unique saint.Cowper had enormous influence across Britain and beyond in his day. people who would never go to church read Cowper’s gospel focused poetry.

      Dear Robert,

      I am so pleased my Cowper biography was helpful to you. Sadly, my Poet of Paradise is now out of print though my ‘William Cowper: The Man of God’s Stamp’, published by Joshua Press is still to be had. I am now working on a new edition of my Dr. Phil. thesis entitled ‘Paradise and Poetry: An in-depth study of William Cowper’s poetic mind’ which will be enlarged by some 200 pages bringing it up to date on Cowper scholarship but also adding more devotional material from my Poet of Paradise. This will be most likely published in Germany.

      Every blessing from Mülheim,

      George Melvyn Ella

    Dear Ben,

    I had an essay published by an English educational journal on Tirocinium and Cowper’s helpful views on home-schooling. Would you like me to send you a copy per e-mail?

    G. M. Ella
