Historical Who is Who

DONNE, John

1571 - 1631
England
RELIGION, LITERATURE

Powerful exponent of both love poetry and religious verse. John Donne's journey from Roman Catholic to Church of England and his preaching role as Dean of St Paul’s is continually accompanied by lyrical expression. His conjured words are highly expressive, theologically challenging and humanly reflective – not least in relation to death.
