Donne, John, Clements, A. L.


"This new Norton Critical Edition presents a comprehensive collection of Donne's poetry. The texts are divided into sections: "Satires," "Elegies," "Verse Letters to Several Personages," "Songs and Sonnets," and "Divine Poems." They have been scrupulously edited and are from the Westmoreland manuscript where possible - collated against the best exemplars from the most important families of Donne manuscripts: the Cambridge Balam, the Dublin Trinity, the O'Flahertie - and compared with all seven of the seventeenth-century printed editions of the poems as well as with the major twentieth-century editions. Annotations to the texts of the poems define uncommon terms and locate historical references." ""Criticism" is divided into four sections. "Donne and Metaphysical Poetry" includes seventeenth-century views on Donne and his style by Ben Jonson, Thomas Carew, Izaak Walton, John Dryden, Samuel Johnson, Dennis Flynn, and John Carey. "Satires, Elegies, and Verse Letters" offers insights into Donne's frequently overlooked early poems and their social and literary backgrounds, Collected here are selections by Arthur F. Marotti, M. Thomas Hester, Alan Armstrong, Achsah Guibbory, Margaret Maurer, Heather Dubrow, and Gary A. Stringer. Pieces on Donne the love poet are included in "Songs and Sonnets," by Donald L. Guss, Patrick Cruttwell, John A. Clair, M. Thomas Hester, Theresa M. DiPasquale, and Camille Wells Slights. "Holy Sonnets/Divine Poems" includes essays that discuss Donne's struggles as a Christian, by R. V. Young, Louis L. Martz, David M. Sullivan, and Donald R. Dickson. A Chronology, Selected Bibliography, Index of Titles, and Index of First Lines are also included."--BOOK JACKET.Donne, John is the author of 'John Donne's Poetry Authoritative Texts, Criticism', published 1991 under ISBN 9780393960624 and ISBN 0393960625.
