Hello all, I think it would be fascinating to see how much of the English canon belonged to the Anglican Church. There's John Donne, George Herbert, and most of the Metaphysical Poets. William Wordsworth was a devout Anglican. There's Dante and Christina Rossetti, two leaders of the pre-Raphaelite movement. W.B. Yeats and C.S. Lewis were both lapsed Church of Ireland and later returned to the Church (much later in Yeats's case than Lewis's). W.H. Auden was also lapsed (C of E) and returned half-way through his career. T.S. Eliot famously converted to the C of E and became an Anglo-Catholic. John Betjeman was also an Anglo-Catholic. Geoffrey Hill, the greatest living poet, is a practicing Anglican. His wife, the poet Alice Goodman, is an ordained Anglican priest. Can you think of any more?
