About the book:

Donald Dickson's John Donne's Poetry is the best text of Donne now available. It is scrupulously edited, and equally useful for students and for scholars.Harold Bloom, Yale University

The texts reprinted in this new Norton Critical Edition have been scrupulously edited and are from the Westmoreland manuscript where possible, collated against the most important families of Donne manuscriptsthe Cambridge Belam, the Dublin Trinity, and the OFlahertieand compared with all seven seventeenth-century printed editions of the poems as well as all major twentieth-century editions. Criticism is divided into four sections and represents the best criticism and interpretation of Donnes writing: Donne and Metaphysical Poetry includes seven seventeenth-century views by contemporaries of Donne such as Ben Jonson, Thomas Carew, and John Dryden, among others; Satires, Elegies, and Verse Letters includes seven selections that offer social and literary context for and insights into Donnes frequently overlooked early poems; Songs and Sonnets features six analyses of Donnes love poetry; and Holy Sonnets/Divine Poems explores Donnes struggles as a Christian through four authoritative essays. A Chronology of Donnes life and work, a Selected Bibliography, and an Index of Titles and First Lines are also included.
