    • Abstract:
      The article focuses on how the Bible's Book of Psalms influenced the poetry of Edward Taylor, particularly on his poems "Preparatory Meditations." The author discusses Taylor's poetic techniques of structure, voice, and imagery, analyzes how his relationship with Christ influenced his work, and explores how Taylor's "Meditations" imitate the Psalm's of biblical David.
