John Donne's Erotica

New Yorker 
excerpt

Donne was, in fact, a rake and a bawd 
before he became a preacher and, 
in the fullness of time, the dean of St. Paul’s Cathedral, 
famous for his sermons and celebrated at court. 
He wrote poetry throughout this checkered, picaresque career. 
Almost none of it was published in his lifetime. 
But the range of the work that survives 
does include not only canonical love poems like 
“A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning” 
but erotica also both intricate and raw.
