    This is a very good e-edition of Donne's complete poetry and prose works. Donne's writing needs no critique from me. His poetry, in particular, has been a love of mine for many years; I have printed editions of his work, I have some of his shorter poems by heart and I read A Nocturnal Upon St. Lucy's Day at every winter solstice. (And yes, I know that's no longer St. Lucy's Day, but I read it then because 'tis the yeares midnight.) I wanted an edition to keep handy on my Kindle. This fits the bil This is a very good e-edition of Donne's complete poetry and prose works. Donne's writing needs no critique from me. His poetry, in particular, has been a love of mine for many years; I have printed editions of his work, I have some of his shorter poems by heart and I read A Nocturnal Upon St. Lucy's Day at every winter solstice. (And yes, I know that's no longer St. Lucy's Day, but I read it then because 'tis the yeares midnight.) I wanted an edition to keep handy on my Kindle. This fits the bill admirably. This edition is well laid-out; the formatting is good and I found finding and navigating from the Contents to a particular poem or prose work pretty simple. Spelling and punctuation have been modernised which suits me well in some contexts, although I am very glad to have my beautiful old print edition with Donne's somewhat chaotic approach to both spelling and punctuation because I enjoy that very much, too. Here, Donne's words are as clear as they can be and it's an excellent reading edition. So far as I can tell as a lay person, the works are accurately reproduced and this is a comprehensive edition. At under a quid, this is an unmissable bargain for me, and I can recommend it very warmly.

    Women, sickness, and death - his major themes. As a clergyman he wrote both secular and devotional poetry, and although it maybe partly due to his antiquated English, I didn't find the devotional ones greatly inspiring, and the others I found mostly unedifying. Those about death are very edifying, as the end of our earthly life, if kept in mind, keeps us truly sober in heart. Women, sickness, and death - his major themes.

    I'd panned one of Donne's efforts in prose that I'd read in 2016, not recommending it. For some reason, his collected works were much more enjoyable, and I heartily recommend this book. But don't be surprised if, at times, Donne seems a bit of a dilettante. I'd panned one of Donne's efforts in prose that I'd read in 2016, not recommending it.
