John Donne

Synonymous with metaphysical poetry, John Donne combined wit with passion, startling diction with curious contrasts. This program chronicles his extraordinary life as lawyer, lover, sailor, father, preacher, and poet. Manuscripts and paintings are combined with readings from many of Donne’s most famous writings, including “The Flea,” “Elegy XX,” “A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning,” “The Calm,” “Progress of the Soul,” “Holy Sonnet XVII,” “Meditation XVII,” and “Hymn to God, My God, in My Sickness.” (20 minutes)
