Study Guide to The Metaphysical Poets

A comprehensive study guide offering in-depth explanation, essay, and test prep for the metaphysical poets, including Abraham Cowley, George Herbert, John Donne, and Henry Vaughn. These four poets are recognized for a greater emphasis on the spoken rather than lyrical quality of verse.

As a collection of 17th century poetry, these poets employed an innovative and original approach, offering modern readers a new perspective of English poetry. Moreover, the metaphysical poets included in this study guide considerably influenced the poetry of the twentieth century through their use of intellectual wit, imagery and subtle argument.
