Selected Prose

Culture and Anarchy and Other Writings




Searing, haunting and timeless prose from one of England's greatest poets

This selection of John Donne's most powerful prose shows that the man remembered predominantly for his poetry was also a preacher, and a prose writer of extraordinary power. In it, he explores the metaphysical collision between poetry and religion, suicide and duty, the secular and the spiritual that characterized his times.

Edited with an introduction and notes by Neil Rhodes.
