    John Donne

    JOHN DONNE John Donne (1572-1631) is credited with the honour of being the poet who broke the Petrarchan tradition in England and created a new mode of poetry. Rather than a complete breach, Donne's poetry is a widening of the scope of the Elizabethan tradition. He implements already existing modes in every aspect: new metrical schemes (although he will return to the sonnet in his last works), a rich and original imagery, a colloquial, conversational

    John Donne

    John Donne’s poem, “The Bait,” is a clever response to the romantic ideas portrayed by both Christopher Marlowe in “The Passionate Shepard to His Love,” and Sir Walter Raleigh’s The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepard. Through connotative and denotative language, Donne is able to clearly portray a sarcastic image of love and deception. “The Bait” is a poem in direct parody of those of Marlowe and Raleigh. In Marlowe’s poem, one is trying desperately to

    John Donne's, "The Flea," is a persuasive poem in which the speaker is attempting to establish a sexual union with his significant other. However, based on the woman's rejection, the speaker twists his argument, making that which he requests seem insignificant.
