John Donne: The Major Works

Portada
Oxford University Press, 2000 - 488 páginas
This authoritative edition was formerly published in the acclaimed Oxford Authors series under the general editorship of Frank Kermode. It brings together a unique combination of Donne's poetry and prose - all the major poems, complemented by rarely published letters and extracts from Donne'ssermons - to give the essence of his work and thinking.John Donne (1572-1631) is today celebrated as one of the greatest of the metaphysical poets, whose verse was daringly original and whose use of imagery and conceits marked a new, intellectual approach to poetry. His Satires, Elegies, and Songs and Sonnets, which contain his most famous love poems,were complemented by his religious writing, both verse and prose. He was one of the most renowned preachers of his day, and this volume does equal justice to the full range of his work. In addition to nearly all his English poetry this volume includes over 130 extracts from Donne's sermons, aswell as the full text of his last sermon, 'Death's Duel'. A distinguishing feature of the selection is that the works are arranged in the chronological order of their composition.

Google should withdraw this blatant piece of cultural appropriation from its list. Its central message obfuscated but nevertheless clear is summarised in the final lines. never send to know for whom the bell tolls;it tolls for thee." In other words 'All Lives Matter'. Racist! White Supremacist.! Apologist for Slavery! His statue must be pulled down immediately, and I call on all officers of the Metropolitan Police to rise up (off their knees), pull it down. and then kneel down again.
