    I hadn't actually read much of John Donne's work before, which is rather odd given that I've been obsessed with English Literature since forever and ever. But I used to (still do, really) have a huge blind spot when it came to poetry, because I didn't like it that much. Donne's poetry is good: some of the poems are just beautiful, with lovely, lovely imagery, and some are pretty clever ("The Flea", although that's also gross). Despite the language, it's pretty easy to read, too.

Despite the language, it's pretty easy to read, too. It's funny to approach it from two different directions: from a modern perspective and from an in-context perspective -- I'm doing Donne in both Renaissance Literature and English Literature. Definitely worth reading even if it's not for study.

    Metaphysical poetry that's so good you'll want to mark passages and copy then into your journals. His stuff covers marriage, death, politics, and, of course, love.

    One of the greats. Donne's ability to suspend time and capture moments of intimacy is almost unmatched. An unusual inspiration for a lesbian poet you may say, but I am not alone!

    He hit a few homers. But it's remarkable how much of what he wrote does not reach me at all. He hit a few homers. But it's remarkable how much of what he wrote does not reach me at all.

    "No man is an island entire of himself...", and with that my interest in poetry was launched. A truly spiritual and gifted writer. "No man is an island entire of himself...", and with that my interest in poetry was launched. A truly spiritual and gifted writer.
