> John Donne
> Friend of both Izaak Walton and Ben Jonson, John Donne was the most famous
> of the metaphysical poets of the 17th century, a group that included
> George Herbert and Henry Vaughan. Placing a premium on intellectual wit,
> learned imagery, and subtle argument, Donne's poems have remained some of
> the most enduring from this period. Created as part of the Luminarium
> Project by Anniina Jokinen, the site features the complete works of John
> Donne, including spoken word versions of many of his poems. The additional
> resources section is quite helpful, as it contains many different
> biographical sketches of Donne, along with a number of images of Donne
> from his childhood to his appointment as the Dean of St. Paul's in 1621.
> Scholars will be pleased to find a page of critical essays on Donne's
> works available here, some written by students, some by faculty, and one
> particularly trenchant commentary by T.S. Eliot.
