What are the chief characteristics of John Donne’s religious poetry?
Answers 1Add Yours
A great deal of Donne's poetry is exclusively divine, and even the more secular poems often contain a heavy dose of religious thought and meaning. Donne saw his Creator as central to his world, and thus he had no good reason to escape the influence of the Divine on his work. His love poetry moves from physical attraction to spiritual unity most of the time. To Donne, religion was not a separate part of life, but the wellspring from which one's every day drew sustenance.
