The Variorum Edition of the Poetry of John Donne, Volume 7, Part 1 : The Holy Sonnets
John Donne, Gary A. Stringer, Paul A. Parrish
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
This is the 4th volume of The Variorum Edition of the Poetry of John Donne to appear. This volume presents a newly edited critical text of the Holy Sonnets and a comprehensive digest of the critical-scholarly commentary on them from Donne’s time through 1995. The editors identify and print both an earlier and a revised authorial sequence of sonnets, as well as presenting the scribal collection—which contains unique authorial versions of several of the sonnets—inscribed by Donne’s friend Rowland Woodward in the Westmoreland manuscript.
