    The Cowper and Newton Journal. The Journal invites submissions on any topic related to William Cowper, John Newton and their circle but embraces the wider milieu – literary, artistic, religious, historical, horticultural – of their contemporaries (in effect the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries).

for J. De Luc's. William Cowper's poem "On the Receipt of My Mother's Picture Out of Norfolk" is a memorial poem. In the poem, Cowper (in the opening line) wishes that his mother was alive so that he could talk.

William Cowper was keenly aware of the truth that God moves in mysterious ways. His life, as John Piper describes it in his biography of Cowper, seems to have been “one long accumulation of pain,” especially mental pain.
