John Donne: Poems by John Donne

John Donne: Poems is a complex collection of metaphysical poems that explore God, religion, and sexuality. These poems are extremely dense, and often present conflicting opinions; the poet is divided on his views of God, and therefore writes in a non-traditional manner that is expository of the fickle nature and tempestuous belief of religious men. His familiarity with both God and the devil is a common topic, and the fear of death is a major theme in these works, as are love and passion.
