'Never send to know for whom the belltolls; It tolls for thee' John Donne was not only a poet but a preacher and prose writer of dynamic wit and dazzling intellect. This selection of the best of his prose works, including his sermons, displays all the verbal dexterity, fascination with paradox and love of argument that characterizes his verse. In Biathanatoshe questions whether suicide can ever be justified, while in Devotions, his moving account of his near-fatal illness, he expresses a dual vision of secular doubts and religious reassurance. Exploring the unresolved tension between the spiritual and the earthly, these pieces enlarge our image of Donne and his intellectual world. Edited with an introduction and notes by Neil Rhodes
