The How to Believe series of books explores the teachings, philosophies, and beliefs of major thinkers and religious texts. In a short, easy-to-access format, leading writers present new understandings of these perennially important ideas. John Donne is well known as one of literature's great love poets. But his writing is also infused with a deep-yet-playful philosophy. Satirist and cleric both, in Roz Kaveney's engrossing book, John Donne is the man who thought too much, about love and death and his rejection of the choices of his family to rise up the church's ranks.
