Metaphysical Poetry (Penguin Classics)by Colin Burrow
Synopses & Reviews
Featuring more erotic and libertine poems, more political poems, and more poems by women, this newly revised selection of poems by the greatest poets of the seventeenth century offers a generous sampling of John Donne as well as poems by George Herbert, John Milton, Anne Bradstreet, Richard Crashaw, Henry Vaughan, Andrew Marvell, the Earl of Rochester, and many more.
Spanning the Elizabethan age to the Restoration and beyond, Metaphysical poetry reacted to a time of stratling progress, scientific discovery and deep religious uncertainty.
