The Sun Rising by John Donne John Donne (pron.: /ˈdʌn/ DUN) (between 24 January and 19 June 1572 -- 31 March 1631) was an English poet, satirist, lawyer and a cleric in the Church of England. He is considered the pre-eminent representative of the metaphysical poets. His works are noted for their strong, sensual style and include sonnets, love poetry, religious poems, Latin translations, epigrams, elegies, songs, satires and sermons. His poetry is noted for its vibrancy of language and inventiveness of metaphor, especially compared to that of his contemporaries. Donne's style is characterised by abrupt openings and various paradoxes, ironies and dislocations. These features, along with his frequent dramatic or everyday speech rhythms, his tense syntax and his tough eloquence, were both a...
Click http://drandrewbarker.com for transcript and notes of the lecture and analysis above. A love poem from the morning. Upon waking, a man feels a new kind of love for the woman he is with. This poem, "The Good Morrow", is what he tells her. What was their relationship like? How has it changed? What will their love be like in the future? The lecture looks at both the confidence and vulnerability of the one who speaks the beautiful lines that make up this declaration of heightened love. Note: Analysis of the line "Suckled on country pleasures childishly" contains profanity (34:40 -- 36:54).

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 friend's Or of thine own were: Any man's death diminishes me, Because I am involved in mankind, And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.

In this video, we hear from Sophie Ratcliffe, a lecturer in English, about her own experience of bereavement, and about how one poem in particular offered some consolation in her grief. The poem was John Donne’s ‘A Valediction Forbidding Mourning’, which you can read below. Whereas Lucy found some solace in a text that reflected her own feelings of loss, Sophie was comforted by the reassuring sentiment of Donne’s poem. Donne’s ‘Valediction’ suggests that people who love each other can remain together even when they are apart. Indeed, through the poem’s distinctively witty tone, it is as though the 17th century poet John Donne is still with us when we read this poem today, and for a teenager coming to terms with loss, this notion was a comforting one.

I hope to die peacefully in my sleep with a smile on my face, like my grandfather did, not terrified and screaming like his passengers. Last night, in bed, my wife told me she had bought a pair of gardening shears. I replied that we already had a pair of gardening shears. She explained that these shears were of such a wonderful design and of such beauty that I could not fail to be impressed when I saw them. I said that I didn't want to see them, that her description was enough together with the knowledge that there was such a wonderful pair of garden shears that gave her such pleasure: and henceforth I would bask in the glow of ownership without ever once seeing these shears; it would become for me a religious belief, cool and Zen. (I don't like gardening) When a neophyte asked the...
THE CANNONIZATION by John Donne
This video is about John Donne
This video is about John Donne
Yesterday you thought the flame has flickered again
A feeling from the past you’d recognize
But maybe tomorrow morning I won’t be there
Cos if you’re looking for the answer, then it’s
Right before your eyes
Look into the mirror, who is it you see?
The face of someone now as cold as ice
The anger in your mind turns now toward regret
If you’re looking for the answer
Then it’s right before your eyes
When your bed is empty
And you’re thinking of me
Your mind will dwell on all your sacrifice
For surely tomorrow morning, I won’t be there
And if you’re looking for the answer, then it’s
