Product Description

Sub Topics: John Donne’s “Valediction Forbidding Mourning” is a quintessential metaphysical poem

Key Words: poetry in English, Shakespeare , Donne, paradox, love, metaphysical, passion

When Shakespeare takes a rather conventional attitude of boredom and dejection, Donne, characteristically, seeks a paradox: the stronger and purer the love, the less it ought to be affected by absence. The result is a quintessential metaphysical poem. Donne’s poem is also about the effect of absence on two lovers. Donne sought to convey abstruse scientific fact in a lyric. It gave men a passion for pure learning, set Jonson to turn himself from a bricklayer into the best equipped scholar of his day, and Fuller and Camden grubbing among English records and gathering for the first time materials of scientific value for English history.
