The Complete Poetry and Selected Prose of John Donne (Modern Library Classics)

The Complete Poetry and Selected Prose of John Donne (Modern Library Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This Modern Library edition contains all of John Donne's great metaphysical love poetry. Here are such well-known songs and sonnets as "A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning," "The Extasie," and "A Nocturnall Upon S. Lucies Day," along with the love elegies "Jealosie," "His Parting From Her," and "To His Mistris Going to Bed." Presented as well are Donne's satires, epigrams, verse letters, and holy sonnets, along with his most ambitious and important poems, the Anniversaries. In addition, there is a generous sampling of Donne's prose, including many of his private letters; Ignatius His Conclave, a satiric onslaught on the Jesuits; excerpts from Biathanatos, his celebrated defense of suicide; and his most famous sermons, concluding with the final "Death's Duell." "We have only to read [Donne]," wrote Virginia Woolf, "to submit to the sound of that passionate and penetrating voice, and his figure rises again across the waste of the years more erect, more imperious, more inscrutable than any of his time."

Synopsis:

An accessible and comprehensive gathering of the works of the metaphysical English poet John Donne, a writer who has continued to loom large on the literary landscape (after a long period of obscurity) since his championing by TS Eliot and others. With a new introduction, in a volume edited by Charles Coffin.
