John Donne's poetry with Katherine Rundell

John Donne’s poetry and prose in London. The scholar and children’s author Katherine Rundell traces the life and paradoxical career of John Donne from the street where he was born, through the palaces and colleges where he worked to the cathedral where he preached and now lies buried.


In 2022 Rundell won the Baillie-Gifford Prize for her biography of Donne, Super-Infinite.

Donne's prose masterpiece Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions was published 400 years ago in January 1624.
