Overview

There is perhaps no superior edition of Donne's Songs and Sonets than Theodore Redpath's wonderful annotated volume. Out of print for a decade, the book is reprinted here in its second, revised edition. The book's twofold origin is evident on every page of Redpath's limpid commentary: it arises partly out of a life of scholarship and partly from Redpath's experiences and concerns as a teacher. The volume contains notes "on every point likely to cause difficulty to a reader of average intelligence."

What People are Saying About This

Harold Bloom

Redpath's edition of Donne's Songs and Sonets is the most useful and reliable in existence. I commend it strongly.

John Hollander

Redpath's edition of Donne's Songs and Sonets provides a superb introduction to these poems which have for so long remained central to English verse. Drawing on established knowledge and shrewd, original critical insights, this volume speaks illuminatingly to students of literature and to readers and writers of poetry generally.
