John Donne was a writer of dazzling extremes. He was a notorious
rake and eloquent preacher; he wrote poems of tender intimacy, and
lyrics of gross misogyny. This book offers a comprehensive account
of early modern life and culture as it relates to Donne's richly
varied body of work. Short, lively, and accessible chapters written
by leading experts in early modern studies shed light on Donne's
literary career, language and works as well as exploring the social
and intellectual contexts of his writing and its reception from the
seventeenth to the twenty-first century. These chapters provide the
depth of interpretation that Donne demands, and the range of
knowledge that his prodigiously learned works elicit. Supported by
a chronology of Donne's life and works and a comprehensive
bibliography, this volume is a major new contribution to the study
and criticism on the age of Donne and his writing.
