The Love Poems of John Donne PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Love Poems of John Donne  free pdf Read by Richard Burton in a manner that truly does justice to the virtuosity to the love poems of England's most outstanding Metaphysical poet, bending both meaning and sound to the service of the Metaphysical conceit. Donne's poetry embraces a wide range of secular and religious subjects. He wrote cynical verse about inconstancy, poems about true love, Neoplatonic lyrics on the mystical union of lovers' souls and bodies and brilliant satires and hymns depicting his own spiritual struggles. Whatever the subject, Donne's poems reveal the same characteristics that typified the work of the metaphysical poets: dazzling wordplay, often explicitly sexual- paradox- subtle argumentation- surprising contrasts- intricate psychological analysis- and striking imagery selected from nontraditional areas such as law, physiology, scholastic philosophy, and mathematics. Expertly recited by Richard Burton, John Donne's love poetry stands alone as one of England's greatest ever love poets.

About John Donne

John Donne was born in London in 1572 to a prominent Roman Catholic family, but converted the Anglicanism during the 1590s. After entering the University of Oxford aged 11 and the University of Cambridge at aged 14, during which time he took no degree examinations, he became a priest of the Anglican Church, attaining eminence as a preacher, delivering sermons that are regarded as the most brilliant and eloquent of his time. His poetry embraces both secular and religious subjects, and has earned him the distinction of one of Britain's most famous poets of all time and the quintessential Metaphysical poet of English literature.
