There will the river whispering run Warm'd by thy eyes, more than the sun; And there the 'enamour'd fish will stay, Begging themselves they may betray.

John Donne’s poetry is a curious mix of contradictions. At once spiritual and metaphysical, it is also deeply embedded in the physicality of bodies: love as a physical, corporeal experience as well as a spiritual high. His style can often be startlingly plain (‘For God’s sake hold your tongue’, one of the poems on this list begins), yet his imagery is frequently complex, his use of extended metaphors requiring some careful unpacking. It comes with very useful annotations and an informative introduction.

Donne’s poems: published or censored. The book showcases Donne’s dazzling range of poetic themes and styles, from works of religious devotion to intellectual wit, cynicism and sexual passion. There are 12 of his Holy Sonnets, as well as Elegies, Satires and a number of famous verses such as ‘The Flea’ and ‘The Sun Rising’ which were later called Songs and Sonnets. Strikingly, however, one famous verse is absent from this collection. The licenser refused to publish Donne’s ‘Elegy: To His Mistress Going to Bed’ with its erotic description of a woman undressing.
