About the Author

Poet and churchman John Donne was born in London in 1572. He attended both the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge, but did not receive a degree from either university. He studied law at Lincoln's Inn, London, in 1592, and was appointed private secretary to Sir Thomas Egerton, mostrar mais Keeper of the Great Seal, in 1598. He became an Anglican priest in 1615 and was appointed royal chaplain later that year. In 1621 he was named dean of St. Paul's Cathedral. Donne prepared for his own death by leaving his sickbed to deliver his own funeral sermon, "Death's Duel", and then returned home to have a portrait of himself made in his funeral shroud. He died in London on March 31, 1631. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Most of the Love Poems deal with Death and Despair.

Only four resonated with me:

Love's Growth
Break of Day
Lover's Infinities
and - The Bait

The star rating shows my enjoyment level, not the book's quality. I am in no way qualified to say anything about that. I did enjoy reading these poems though. The early ones were saucy, snarky and quite naughty. The later Divine poems were beautiful. All were interesting, though I am lacking quite a bit of knowledge to get their full meaning.
