11th Impression, Revised Edition. From the introduction: “The praise that has been accorded to Donne’s writings by three centuries of his admirers is not more remarkable than the contempt in which they have been held by his detractors. The elegies printed after his death bear witness to the popularity he enjoyed, both as a poet and as a divine, and to the end of the seventeenth century his influence ,as a writer in the “metaphysical style” can be traced in the work of poets and poetasters alike.”
