Editorial Reviews

Edward Herrmann brings tenderness and restraint to his performance of John Donne’s Love Poems.
The words of Donne (1572-1631) have endured for centuries because of the English poet’s wit, inventive language, and passion. In his poem "The Canonization",” Donne uses exaggerated metaphors to brag to a friend about the enduring nature of his love. In "The Paradox", Donne writes about the unknowable nature of love, comparing it to death.
In a mid-Atlantic accent, Herrman wrenches both the irony and the sentiment from each line of Donne’s immortal verse.

Publisher's Summary

The first and possibly greatest of the English metaphysical poets, and best known for his later theological sonnets, John Donne wrote many intensely personal love poems, songs, and elegies. Donne's love poetry is remarkable for its insightful analysis of the psychology of love as well as its emotional sophistication - a far cry from the conventional courtly poetry popular in his time.

Not love poems. Not by John Donne. Not read by Edward Herrmann. Other than that, no problem.
