Summary:
In 1614, just prior to his ordination, John Donne renounced the writing of verse. He was well aware of the widespread opinion that rhyming was an inappropriate avocation for a man of the cloth. Yet, on certain occasions, Donne did write poetry again.In this group of five closely related essays, David Novarr takes a new look at Donne's poems-both secular and divine-written before and after his ordination. He reassesses the validity and utility of widely accepted critical contexts which define our understanding of particular poems, and proposes fresh approaches and interpretations.Novarr's knowledge of Donne's life, his critical insight, and his attention to the details of Donne's texts-all join to make The Disinterred Muse a major contribution to our understanding of Donne and his art.
