The first three chapters provide a useful overview of the 'metaphysical poets', chapter 3 focusing on Donne. Then follows a consideration of each of the poets with each chapter, after a short introduction, commenting on specific poems. The author's style is concise and witty, a bit too so for me at times since I can't follow many of the literary references. I dare say I will appreciate it more when I have read more of the poets.
