Metaphysical Lyrics and Poems of the Seventeenth Century: Donne to Butler edited by Herbert J. C. Grierson

| /

This classic anthology, first published in 1921, has been instrumental in reviving interest in the seventeenth-century metaphysical poets and in securing for them the high reputation they now enjoy. This new edition includes the same poems as the original--love poems, divine poems, elegies, satires, epistles, and meditations by over twenty-five different poets ranging from Suckling and Donne to Marvell and Herbert.

Grierson's brilliant introductory essay is included, while Alastair Fowler has contributed a new introduction and notes and modernized the spellings throughout.
