Abstract:

For Columbia University's Simon Schama, John Donne is the poet who transformed English verse through a raw emotional honesty coupled with a virtuosic skill with language. Drawing upon the observations of John Carey, literary critic and author of John Donne: Life, Mind, and Art, and insightful readings by actress Fiona Shaw, Schama undertakes a passionate appraisal of Donne's work. Simon Schama's John Donne vividly brings to life the brilliant and ambitious poet, his ardent writings, and his turbulent times. "To His Mistress Going to Bed," "The Canonization," "The Good-Morrow," and "Holy Sonnet XIV" are given particular attention.
