One of the greatest metaphysical poets of all time, Donne could find as much joy in the contemplation of man’s relationship to God, as he could in the conjugal significance of a flea bite. Included here is “The Flea,” “To His Mistress Going to Bed,” “Elegy 16,“ and “A Valediction Forbidding Mourning,” among others.

About the Author

John Donne (1572-1631) was an English poet, satirist, philosopher, and chaplain who is considered a founder of the Metaphysical Poets, a group of writers characterized by their ability to coax new perspective through paradoxical images, inventive syntax, and imagery from art, philosophy, and religion using an extended metaphor known as a conceit. Donne’s works are notable for their realistic and sensual style and include sonnets, love poetry, religious poems, Latin translations, epigrams, elegies, songs, satires, and sermons. He is firmly established as one of the greatest poets in the English language, strongly influencing writers of the seventeenth century. He died in 1631 and was buried at St. Paul’s Cathedral.
