Browne, S. T. (n.d.). Religio Medici : Hydriotaphia : And the Letter to a Friend. Retrieved from

Introduction: SIR THOMAS BROWNE (whose works occupy so prominent a position in the literary history of the seventeenth century) is an author who is now little known and less read. This com? parative oblivion to which he has been consigned is the more remarkable, as, if for nothing else, his writings deserve to be studied as an example of the English language in what may be termed a transition state. The prose of the Elizabethan age was beginning to pass away and give place to a more inflated style of writing?a style which, after passing through various stages of development, culminated in that of Johnson.
