The Poems of John Donne: Volume One, Hardback Book

The Poems of John Donne: Volume One Hardback

Edited by Robin Robbins

Part of the Longman Annotated English Poets series

Description

John Donne (1572-1631) is firmly fixed in the canon of English literature. "No man is an island" and "For whom the bell tolls" are just two of his phrases known by virtually everyone.

The Poems of John Donne is a two volume edition of Donne's poems based on a comprehensive re-evaluation of his work from composition to circulation and reception.

Donne's output is tremendously varied in style and form and demonstrates his ability to change his writing according to context and occasion.

This edition presents the text of all his known poems, from the epigrams, songs and satires written for fellow young men about town, to the more mature verse-epistles and memorial elegies written for his patrons.

Volume One contains the Epigrams, Verse Letters to Friends, Love Lyrics, Love Elegies and Satires.
