However, at least as many have thought the opposite, finding him brilliantly creative, ever-inventive, and resoundingly fresh. Bibliography[ edit ] Collected Works of the Earl of Rochester, ed. Also, this book's great strength is its breadth, including poems, letters, sermons, and other writings of Donne. By Rachel Michaels on Sep 22, I love the condition of the book. The most notable and striking feature of all the love poems, though, is their highly emotional nature and compelling immediacy. To a large extent, she took over Hayward's functions in Eliot's life after they separated their households.

He edited many of Jonathan Swift 's works. He was one of the era's leading playboys in youth, and it shows; his early poems deal almost exclusively with love and are often daringly erotic. Since the s, close relationships to Sun Ra and his works, setting up the world's most comprehensive Waitawhile Sun Ra Archive Sigrid Hauff Studied oriental languages and arts, philosophy, and romance studies at the universities of Tubingen and Istanbul. Those seeking poems only or less prose can find a more affordable edition, and the few who want more prose must look elsewhere - though they will be very hard-pressed to find a more generous selection for the price. However, it possibly makes him stand out even more now - partly because centuries of poets have followed his lead but also because he reads nothing like his contemporaries.

I thought it had the same covering as shown but I must have misread it. Even here, Michelangelo's ideas were fairly conventional, common among the educated literati, and rarely giving profound insight. Do you suppose yourself advancing on real ground toward a real heroic man? He edited many of Jonathan Swift 's works.

Thanks to the editors and everyone involved in here.

To a large extent, she took over Hayward's functions in Eliot's life after they separated their households. But all this is really aftermath, as many - probably even most - of the religious poems precede his priesthood, including the Holy Sonnets.

Many of his subjects were then conventional - the court, merchants, lawyers, bad poets, etc. The book includes Ask not for whom this review tolls Almost all the "Songs and Sonets" and "Elegies and Historical Epistle" that begin the Poetry section are love poetry, but they really run the gamut in tone.

Outstanding vendor. He came from a strong Catholic family in a time when Catholicism was literally illegal and caused severe social stigma. I never knew such a man could exist. Non-Christians will of course disagree with the final comfort taken in heavenly redemption, but the honest and searching look at human suffering is sadly universal.

His metaphors are certainly attention-grabbing, highly imaginative, and - against all odds - superbly executed, but they are hardly his only brilliant yet controversial feature. Skeptics may be wryly amused that it and related works are actually supposed to inspire reverence and devotion, but Donne always falls back on resurrection and heavenly redemption as final proof of God's mercy and justification for bodily and other earthly ills.

All in all, I'd rate the poetry section about four or even four and half stars in terms of how much I loved them, despite some I wasn't taken with. Like nearly everyone, I bought this book for the poetry; I had read little of the prose and really did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised.

This initiated a renaissance possibly making Donne more popular than ever, and though the fever pitch has died down somewhat, he remains in the upper echelon of English poets - one of the handful to have truly entered world literature - and shows no sign of moving.

But, otherwise, a nice addition to the library. The non-religious may scoff at the fact that, for all Donne's relative education and intelligence, he cites the sun's motion as evidence of God's majesty - though he elsewhere seems to agree with Copernicus.

There is a short but very nice biography at the beginning which helps the reader understand the flow of the artist's life. The historical and theological subtleties are of course now all but lost on the great majority of readers, but these strengths still shine clearly regardless of religious persuasion.

The prose has not aged as well as the poems but is almost never dull and often very interesting. It is of great interest biographically as a very public Catholicism renunciation; he could not go back, and it probably made his priesthood inevitable.
