Super-Infinite : The Transformations of John Donne by Katherine Rundell (Paperback)

ISBN: 9780571345922

13.45

John Donne lived myriad lives. Sometime religious outsider and social disaster, sometime celebrity preacher and establishment darling, Donne was incapable of being just one thing. He was a scholar of law, a sea adventurer, an MP, a priest, the Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral – and perhaps the greatest love poet in the history of the English language. In Super-Infinite, Katherine Rundell shows us the many sides of Donne’s extraordinary life, his obsessions, his blazing words, and his tempestuous Elizabethan times – unveiling Donne as the most remarkable mind and as a lesson in living.

‘Wonderful, joyous.’ Maggie O’Farrell
