Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Donald Dickson's John Donne's Poetry is the best text of Donne now available. It is scrupulously edited, and equally useful for students and for scholars."—Harold Bloom, Yale University

The texts reprinted in this new Norton Critical Edition have been scrupulously edited and are from the Westmoreland manuscript where possible, collated against the most important families of Donne manuscripts—the Cambridge Belam, the Dublin Trinity, and the O'Flahertie—and compared with all seven seventeenth-century printed editions of the poemsas well as all major twentieth-century editions.

"Criticism" is divided into four sections and represents the best criticism and interpretation of Donne's writing: "Donne and Metaphysical Poetry" includes seven seventeenth-century views by contemporaries of Donne such as Ben Jonson, Thomas Carew, and John Dryden, among others; "Satires, Elegies, and Verse Letters" includes seven selections that offer social and literary context for and insights into Donne's frequently overlooked early poems; "Songs and Sonnets" features six analyses of Donne's love poetry; and "Holy Sonnets/Divine Poems" explores Donne's struggles as a Christian through four authoritative essays.

A Chronology of Donne's life and work, a Selected Bibliography, and an Index of Titles and First Lines are also included.

About the Series: No other series of classic texts equals the caliber of the Norton Critical Editions. Each volume combines the most authoritative text available with the comprehensive pedagogical apparatus necessary to appreciate the work fully. Careful editing, first-rate translation, and thorough explanatory annotations allow each text to meet the highest literary standards while remaining accessible to students. Each edition is printed on acid-free paper and every text in the series remains in print. Norton Critical Editions are the choice for excellence in scholarship for students at more than 2,000 universities worldwide.

Book News Annotation:

Dickson (English, Texas A&M U.) presents texts of Donne's (1572-1631) poems that draw heavily on manuscript sources and are now considered authoritative by scholars. The critical essays are arranged in the same categories as the poems themselves: metaphysical poetry; satires, elegies, and verse letters; songs and sonnets; and holy sonnets and divine poems. A chronology of his life and work is included. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
