Summary:
Sophisticated wit and intense emotion, religious fervour 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.
