Start by marking The Complete Poetry and Selected Prose as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. I could live for days in the worlds his words create in my mind. The depths of emotion Donne has made me feel, and the questions about myself, religion, love, and loss he has forced me to ask, are the most basic, yet also the most profound. I know it's heretical, but I love Donne's poetry more than Shakespeare's Sonnets.

Complete Poetry and Selected Prose. By John Donne, John Hayward. Appreciation of his peculiar and brilliant gifts seemed lost until Coleridge and De Quincey attempted to renew it during one of those revolutions in taste, more puzzling to the critic, than any political upheaval to the historian-the Romantic revival.

In addition, there is a generous sampling of Donne's prose, including many of his private letters; Ignatius His Conclave, a satiric onslaught on the Jesuits; excerpts from Biathanatos, his celebrated defense of suicide; and his most famous sermons, concluding with the final "Death's Duell.

Another important theme in Donne's poetry is the idea of true religion, something that he spent much time considering and about which he often theorized. He wrote secular poems as well as erotic and love poems. He is particularly famous for his mastery of metaphysical conceits. I want to read this book. The 762nd greatest fiction book of all time. This book is on the following lists

John Donne – An Introduction John Donne was born on 22nd January 1572 in London into a Roman Catholic family when Catholicism was illegal in England and there was turbulence and unrest with both state and church throughout much of Europe. His father, also named John, died when he was 4 and his mother, Elizabeth Heywood married a wealthy widower, ensuring the family were looked after. He received a good education in both Oxford and Cambridge but was unable to obtain a degree without taking the Oath of Supremacy, which as a Catholic, he refused to do.

This Modern Library edition contains all of John Donne's great metaphysical love poetry. Here are such well-known songs and sonnets as "A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning," "The Extasie," and "A Nocturnall Upon S. Lucies Day," along with the love elegies "Jealosie," "His Parting From Her," and "To His Mistris Going to Bed." Presented as well are Donne's satires, epigrams, verse letters, and holy sonnets, along with his most ambitious and important poems, the Anniversaries. In addition, there is a generous sampling of Donne's prose, including many of his private letters; Ignatius His Conclave, a satiric onslaught on the Jesuits; excerpts from Biathanatos, his celebrated defense of suicide; and his most famous sermons, concluding with the final "Death's Duell." "We have only to read [Donne]," wrote Virginia Woolf, "to submit to the sound of that passionate and penetrating voice, and his figure rises again across the waste of the years more erect, more imperious, more inscrutable than any of his time."

If all you want is a single volume collection of Donne's poetry, my recommendation is the Everyman's edition of John Donne, but if you also want a significant selection of Donne's prose - and if you don't, why not? - you can't do better than this Modern Library edition. I recommend the Everyman's volume for the poetry simply because it is such a gorgeous edition. This Modern Library also contains nearly 300 pages of Donne's prose, which is easily some of the most breathtaking in the language.

I have only two complaints with this volume. One is that it contains only 40 pages of the DEVOTIONS UPON EMERGENT OCCASIONS. Luckily, Vintage publishes them in their entirety as a standalone volume, which I strongly recommend for lovers of Donne. The other complaint is that the spine of this particular edition is not strong. I had to return the first copy I got from Amazon because the glue was so thin that it split and creased immediately upon opening. This is a problem I've noted in a number of the Modern Library paperbacks.

Still, if you want only one book of Donne's work, this is the one I recommend. If you want even more, I would recommend the aforementioned Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions and Death's Duel. I also like John Donne - The Major Works: including Songs and Sonnets and sermons (Oxford World's Classics), which includes some prose that the Modern Library edition omits. Finally, if you want a gorgeous edition of the poetry that is as lovely as the poetry it contains, I recommend The Complete English Poems (Everyman's Library). I have to confess that I would love for some publisher to release a 700 or 800 page anthology of his sermons and meditations. While I love Donne's poetry, I have always thought he was at his very best in his prose.

It's missing the one poem I wanted most! Not the seller's fault. But, otherwise, a nice addition to the library. Can't believe I didn't already have it. Donne was a genius...

Above all,
above Penguin and Oxford's edition,
this book is a lover of mine.

The quality of the pages,
the edition,
the taste of the type of letters,
the choices they have made.

This is THE paperback edition of Donne's anthology
for me.

Thanks to the editors and everyone involved in here.
Mankind is richer thanks to you.

I love the condition of the book. I thought it had the same covering as shown but I must have misread it. It had a different covering but I still like the book. Arrived on time too. Good deal.

Sadaron above the Gods
good book, was very satisfied with it

Foginn
Donne is a metaphysical poet worthy of our readings. Insightful, intriguing, and classic.

Excellent in all regards
