John Donne's Sermons on the Psalms and Gospels: With a Selection of Prayers and Meditations

Cover
University of California Press, 2003 - 244 Seiten
The glory of John Donne's prose at its best is very different from that of his verse, but is equal to it; and there can be no question that his best prose is in his sermons. His sense of form and arrangement, his psychological insight, his differences of mood and emphasis, and his religious fervor will make this selection of ten sermons particularly interesting to the attentive reader familiar with Donne's poetry.
