Sophisticated wit and intense emotion, religious fervor and erotic sensuality, delight in life's pleasures and fascination with death, are all to be found in the paradoxical poetry of John Donne. One of the foremost metaphysical poets, Donne's ingenious metaphors and inspired use of language has earned him affection and reverence in near equal measure to Shakespeare. This collection of his finest poetry showcases the diverse range of his work, and includes Death Be Not Proud, A Hymn to God the Father, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Go Catch a Falling Star, The Flea, and To His Mistress Going to Bed.

    " I enjoyed the love sonnets and poetry especially. This edition could have ventured into the poet's life and given some of his pertinent background. "

    " Read selected poems, and really need to go back and read more. He's fabulous, though I prefer his less religious works. "

    " Despite the outdated style, Donne is a genius. One can feel God's immanence; Donne does not isolate Him in His transcedence. "
