JOHN DONNE was born in 1572. He entered a diplomatic career and served as private secretary to Sir Thomas Egerton. However, when he eloped with Egerton's underage niece, Anne More, in 1601, the couple was disinherited and they lived in poverty for many years. He died in 1631 after posing for a portrait in his funeral shroud.
