Rezumat:The article gives an overview of the manner in which the Puritans approached poetry and the Puritan poet understood time and space. It touches as well upon the paradox of the coexistence of the Puritans’ need for images and their fear of idolatry and the characteristics of the Puritan author/poet who was viewed, in Puritan culture, as a mediator who had the mission of discovering in nature, God’s second book, the signs put there by the Author par excellence and making them known to the others. Consequently, even if considered a rather strict and even gloomy community, it seems that beauty was after all a real need and the Puritan poet met it through his/ her verse. The article also touches upon the perception of time and space in meditation. This spiritual exercise was for the practice-oriented Puritan a poetic method of relating to the world through the mind rather than through the senses. In meditation, one goes beyond the limitations of time and space and connects oneself to the essentiality of existence. Puritan poetry illustrated this leap beyond the “here and now” and demonstrated that art was no stranger to the Puritan culture.
