Abstract
The works of the preeminent metaphysical poet John Donne and his followers were forgotten and rejected almost for three centuries after their time. In the beginning of 1900s the interest towards the metaphysical school became higher. As a poet John Donne was reborn from the first half of the 20th century and the vivid interest towards his poetry is still on its highest point. While talking about John Donne’s works, first of all, we are preoccupied by special imagery and poetics typical for this poet. The paper analyzes the main artistic methods and the ways of their use resembled in Donne’s love poetry. Due to the discussion of several poems, there is shown the role of metaphysical wit and conceit in poet’s secular verses. The paper also discusses the role of Ovid’s and Petrarch’s tradition in Donne’s writings. On the other hand, there is highlighted those main characteristics of Baroque, Mannerism and Renaissance times that effected Donne’s works of arts. Deeply intellectual and exquisite manner of writing is Donne’s one of the biggest advantages. The author describes and discusses universal truths by unifying contrasting ideas. The difficulties and paradoxes of human existence presented in his works are still the greatest riddles for even modern people. Therefore I believe that Georgian academics should pay much attention to the studies of English Metaphysics and especially to John Donne’s works. The paper is based on the different types of literary researches (Andreasen-John Donne. Conservative Revolutionary, Guss- Donne: Petrarchist—Italiante Conceits and Love Theory in The Songs and Sonets, Leishman- The Monarch of Wit: An Analytical and Comparative Study of the Poetry of John Donne. …) and presents John Donne’s role in English literature.
