John Donne

Selected Poems

Considered by many critics the foremost English &quote;metaphysical&quote; poet, John Donne (1572–1631) earned renown for both sacred and secular verse, his love poems in the latter genre ranking among his most original and popular works. Brilliant and wide-ranging, Donne's verse is distinguished by its passion, insight, and inspired use of striking metaphors or &quote;conceits.&quote; This volume contains a rich selection of the poet's best work, including, from the Songs and Sonnets: &quote;The Good Morrow,&quote; &quote;The Canonization,&quote; &quote;The Relic,&quote; and &quote;A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning&quote;; from the Elegies: &quote;On His Mistress&quote; and &quote;To His Mistress Going to Bed&quote;; a selection from the Holy Sonnets (including &quote;Death Be Not Proud&quote;); &quote;Good Friday. 1613. Riding Westward,&quote; &quote;Hymn to God My God, in My Sickness&quote; and many more.
