John Donne
(1572-1631)

John Donne


"No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a part of a continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were . . ."
- "Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions," Meditation 17, 1624.


English poet, prose writer, and clergyman, considered the greatest of the metaphysical poets and one of the greatest writers of love poetry.
