The glory of John Donne's prose at its best is very different from that of his verse, but is equal to it; and there can be no question that his best prose is in his sermons. His sense of form and arrangement, his psychological insight, his differences of mood and emphasis, and his religious fervor will make this selection of ten sermons particularly interesting to the attentive reader familiar with Donne's poetry.
Evelyn M. Simpson was coeditor with the late George R. Potter of the definitive ten-volume edition of the Sermons of John Donne. She was also the author of Study of the Prose Works of John Donne, and editor of Donne's Essays in Divinity.
