One Equall Light

Donne's contribution to English literature was surely as great in prose as in verse; but today his sermons, letters and other prose writings are relatively little read. To redress the balance, John Moses has compiled this selection of nearly 1,000 short extracts from the works of his illustrious predecessor as Dean of St Paul's. Three introductory chapters discuss Donne's meaning for us today, the distinctive characteristics of his work, and his reflections on death during his final years.
