John Donne
John Donne was born in London, the son of a wealthy ironmonger and the maternal grandson of the playwright John Heywood. Brought up a Catholic, he was educated at Oxford, leaving without a degree to avoid taking the Oath of Supremacy, although he later converted to the Church of England. He trained as a lawyer at Lincoln's Inn where he became notorious for his wit and high living and in 1596 sailed as a volunteer with the Earl of Essex and Raleigh on the Cadiz expedition. Appointed on his return as chief secretary to Sir Thomas Egerton, the Keeper of the Great Seal, he was subsequently dismissed and briefly imprisoned following the discovery of his secret illicit marriage to his employer's 17-year old niece, Ann Moore, with whom he went on to have 12 children. After some impoverished and soul-searching years, he took Holy Orders in 1615, ultimately becoming Dean of St. Paul's in 1621, in which capacity he delivered many notable sermons. His poetry, which was published primarily on love and religious themes, is characterised by its intensity, passion, intellectual argument, word-play, and cryptic complexity.

    John Donne (1572-1631) was the most outstanding of the English Metaphysical Poets and a churchman famous for his spellbinding sermons. Donne was born in London to a prominent Roman Catholic family but converted to Anglicanism during the 1590s. At the age of 11 he entered the University of Oxford, where he studied for three years. According to some accounts, he spent the next three years at the University of Cambridge but took no degree at either university. He began the study of law at Lincoln's Inn, London, in 1592, and he seemed destined for a legal or diplomatic career. Donne was appointed private secretary to Sir Thomas Egerton, Keeper of the Great Seal, in 1598. His secret marriage in 1601 to Egerton's niece, Anne More, resulted in his dismissal from this position and in a brief imprisonment. During the next few years Donne made a meager living as a lawyer. Donne's principal literary accomplishments during this period were Divine Poems (1607) and the prose work Biathanatos (c. 1608, posthumously published 1644), a half-serious extenuation of suicides, in which he argued that suicide is not intrinsically sinful. Donne became a priest of the Anglican Church in 1615 and was appointed royal chaplain later that year. In 1621 he was named dean of St. Paul's Cathedral. He attained eminence as a preacher, delivering sermons that are regarded as the most brilliant and eloquent of his time.

    Biography of John Donne
    John Donne - (1572-1631), Metaphysical poet
    After his ordination, his reputation as a preacher grew steadily. From 1622 until his death he was Dean of St. Paul's Cathedral in London, and drew huge crowds to hear him, both at the Cathedral and at Paul's Cross, an outdoor pulpit nearby. His prose style is in some ways outdated, but his theme continues to fascinate: "the paradoxical and complex predicament of man as he both seeks and yet draws away from the inescapable claim of God on him." Various collections of his sermons (a ten-volume complete edition and a one-volume selection) have been published. Most anthologies of English poetry contain at least a few of his poems. His friend Izaak Walton (author of The Compleat Angler ) has written a biography.

    and influence. The first two editions of Donne's Poems were published posthumously, in 1633 and 1635, after having circulated widely in manuscript copies. The Poems were sufficiently popular to be published eight times within 90 years of Donne's death, but his work was not to the general taste of the 18th century, when he was regarded as a great but eccentric "wit." The notable exception to that appraisal was Alexander Pope, who admired Donne's intellectual virtuosity and echoed some of Donne's lines in his own poetry. From the early 19th century, however, perceptive readers began to recognize Donne's poetic genius. Robert Browning credited Donne with providing the germ for his own dramatic monologues. By the 20th century, mainly because of the pioneering work of the literary scholar H.J.C. Grierson and the interest of T.S. Eliot, Donne's poetry experienced a remarkable revival. The impression in his poetry that thought and argument are arising immediately out of passionate feeling made Donne the master of both the mature Yeats and Eliot, who were reacting against the meditative lyricism of a Romantic tradition in decline. Indeed, the play of intellect in Donne's poetry, his scorn of conventionally poetic images, and the dramatic realism of his style made him the idol of English-speaking poets and critics in the first half of the 20th century. Readers continue to find stimulus in Donne's fusion of witty argument with passion, his dramatic rendering of complex states of mind, his daring and unhackneyed images, and his ability (little if at all inferior to William Shakespeare's) to make common words yield up rich poetic meaning without distorting the essential quality of English idiom.

    13. John Donne, Priest, Poet, And Preacher
    Biographical sketch by James Kiefer.
    [ Written by James Kiefer. ]
    (Transferred this year to Sat 30 March) (Note: In order that Christians may concentrate their attention and devotion on the Resurrection of Our Lord, and on the events leading up to it and following it, it is customary to omit or transfer all commemorations of departed Christians that fall in the week just before, or the week just after, the Feast of the Resurrection. Accordingly, this present commemoration, sneaked in a day early, will be the last one posted until Monday 15 April. The Kal posts, on the other hand, will come thick and fast.) Donne (rhymes with "sun") was born in 1573 (his father died in 1576) into a Roman Catholic family, and from 1584 to 1594 was educated at Oxford and Cambridge and Lincoln's Inn (this last a highly regarded law school). He became an Anglican (probably around 1594) and aimed at a career in government. He joined with Raleigh and Essex in raids on Cadiz and the Azores, and became private secretary to Sir Thomas Egerton. But in 1601 he secretly married Anne More, the 16-year-old niece of Egerton, and her enraged father had Donne imprisoned. The years following were years of poverty, debt, illness, and frustration. In 1615 he was ordained, perhaps largely because he had given up hope of a career in Parliament. From the above information, the reader might conclude that Donne's professed religious belief was mere opportunism. But the evidence of his poetry is that, long before his ordination, and probably beginning with his marriage, his thoughts were turned toward holiness, and he saw in his wife Anne (as Dante had earlier seen in Beatrice) a glimpse of the glory of God, and in human love a revelation of the nature of Divine Love. His poetry, mostly written before his ordination, includes poems both sacred and secular, full of wit, puns, paradoxes, and obscure allusions at whose meanings we can sometimes only guess, presenting amorous experience in religious terms and devotional experience in erotic terms, so that I have seen one poem of his both in a manual of devotion and in a pornography collection.
