This is a collection of the love poems of John Donne (1571-1631) who is regarded as one of the greatest of the English metaphysical poets. The son of a merchant, he studied at both at Oxford and Cambridge, and later at Lincoln's Inn. He secretly married Ann More and took holy orders in 1615.

Charles Fowkes is the director of a London publishing company. Although he spends most of his time publishing the work of others his first love is writing. He has selected and introduced several collections of short stories, and his biography of Rembrandt, published in 1978, received great praise. The opportunity to select and introduce a collection of the love poetry of John Donne was irresistible to him, and his essay is a refreshing look at one of the finest wordsmiths the English language has known.
