Review quote

"To all appearances the first and the only inclusive anthology of Donne with a sound set of notes, and a bargain at that."--Daniel Kinney, University of Virginia"Great anthology; a representative and rich sampling of the profane and sacred thoughts of this giant. No ancillary text needed; this has it all."--Harold J. Baxter, Trinity College, Illinois"Excellent edition."--Gerald Richman, Suffolk University"Like the other volumes in this series, the Donne is an example of real scholarship put to constructive use."--Edwin Briggs, Wheaton College"An excellent edition."--Juanita Kirk, College of the Ozarksshow more
