    DescriptionVivian Bearing, a specialist in the Sonnets of John Donne, has been diagnosed with terminal ovarian cancer. Her approach to her illness is not unlike her approach to Donne: probing and rational. During the course of her illness, she reassesses her life and work with profundity and wry humour.
