This Research paper argues that it can be seen that Herbert as anxious concerning the approach of shaping the best self; the ideal, useful self, and this unattainable goal drives him, even as he was conscious of and utters in his poetics so that paradoxically he is typical already the best self in his perfect state through God's grace. It is this that it has been proposed that the conversation regarding Herbert's poetry should be revised for acknowledging his commitment to defining the contours of acceptable usefulness and productivity. By examining the structure of heart, the place of poetry and the role of work.
