Although the poet John Donne lived so long ago, some phrases from his writing still linger with us today, such as "no man is an island, " "death, be no proud, " and "for whom the bell tolls, " the last of which provided the title for one of Ernest Hemingway's novels. Donne used poems as a means of metaphysical inquiry and meditation, as well as for very sensual expression. His daringly original use of imagery and conceits to lead the mind to profound understandings marked a new, intellectual approach to poetry. Like Shakespeare, Donne was a genius at making common words yield up rich, poetic meaning. His thought is complex, but his poems unfold in a logical way. This collection includes songs, satires, elegies, selections from The Anniversaries, and divine poems.
