Reviews

'This collection will surely become an essential item on university and higher education reading lists. All undergraduate and postgraduate students of Donne will find stimulating material here on his songs and sonnets, elegies, satires and philosophical and divine poems ... While this volume will certainly become essential student reading it also has much to offer to the many admirers of Donne's writings and reputation outside academia.' Michael Brennan, The Seventeenth Century
