div John Donne s standing as one of the greatest poets in the English language is now thoroughly established and critics such as T S Eliot and F R Leavis have found in Donne s poetry qualities profoundly responsive to the modern age While Donne is famous for his religious poetry his love poems are among the most beautiful ever written and this collection brings them together for the first time br br Donne was a man who knew all the many faces of love physical passion jealousy rapture grief and parting and possessed the genius to distill his experiences into poetry The potency of his writing has lost none of its effect Donne s love poetry taps the reservoir of feelings and emotions common to all human beings br br Before Donne was ordained as a priest in he wrote sonnets such as The Dream and The Ecstasy elegies such as To His Mistress Going to Bed and Love s Progress and wedding songs St Valentine s Day and Epithalamion all of which glitter with an eroticism that truly marries body and soul br br Charles Fowkes author of a critically acclaimed biography of Rembrandt and several anthologies of short stories has gathered those poems in which Donne is most passionate and most lyrical The result is this lovely volume the perfect gift for every beloved a book of poems to press flowers in and to keep by the heart div, Yet it is only this century that Donne has been indisputably established as a great poet and even many feel the greatest love poet of them all Jonson went on to remark that That Donne for not keeping of an accent deserved hanging yet Donne s rhythms once thought unmusical are now recognized as the natural rhythms of the speaking voice his eccentricity as a complex self doubt his obscurity the reflection of a brilliantly learned and allusive mind Poets such as Eliot and Empson have found Donne s poetry profoundly attuned to our modern age while Yeats glowing comment will always be true the intricacy and subtlety of his imagination are the length and depth of the furrow made by his passion br br This volume superbly edited by Professor Smith is the first complete edition to make a serious attempt to guide the reader closely through the complexities of Donne s poetry Considerable attention has been paid to the text and a selection of the important manuscript variants are included This edition is also the first to make use of the newly discovered manuscript of the verse letter to Lady Carey and Mistress Essex Rich, John Donne is best known as the greatest English metaphysical poet But there was another dimension to Donne s life and writing that if less well known is no less profound and beautiful br br Born into an aristocratic Catholic family Donne joined the Church of England at the age of twenty one out of fear of persecution At the age of forty three he gave up his preoccupations with secular prestige and devoted himself utterly to religion It was eight years later when battered with fever the deaths of his beloved wife several of his children and many dear lifelong friends he composed b Devotions upon Emergent Occasions b There is both trauma and great drama in this extended meditation on the meaning of mortality the possibility of salvation and the true nature of the passage of eternal life With a new introduction by poet and biographer Andrew Motion one of the most revered books of Christian devotion speaks to us again of the higher aspirations of man and the always present possibility of a relationship with God br br This long out of print edition also contains Donne s last sermon Death s Duel as well as the short colorful biography of him written by his contemporary Izaak Walton, No description available
