John Donne's poetry is marked by a scientific colloquial directness and a complex, even tortured, intelligence. It falls into two classes. There is the early ironic and erotic poetry that contains some of the finest English love poetry and also his later, religious poetry.

The Collected Poems of John Donne Summary


The Collected Poems of John Donne by John Donne

Edited with an Introduction, Chronology, Notes, Bibliography and Glossary by Roy Booth, Royal Holloway College, University of London.

John Donne (1572-1631) is a poet of concerted emotional and intellectual force, whose strenuously original approach to the subject matter, diction and form of verse re-made English poetry. Donne's poetry combines paradoxical wit, scientific and theological learning with the rhythms and diction of spoken language. Crises of love, conscience, and faith are the great concerns of his poetry which is by turns exalted or disenchanted, direct or oblique, morally profound or outrageously spiteful.

This edition makes available the whole of Donne's English poetry, and includes a new introduction, chronology, notes and up-to-date bibliography.
