A Garland for John Donne, 1631-1931

By Theodore Spencer | Go to book overview

PREFACE

THE year 1931 marks the tercentenary of the death of John Donne, and it is appropriate that the occasion be marked by some such tribute as is intended by the present volume. Donne has affected our time in more ways than one, and we owe him the debt of gratitude which any generation owes to those who have helped it to become articulate. At the same time not all of Donne's activities really concern us, and the editor, in suggesting topics to his collaborators, did not try to give a complete picture of Donne. Such partiality to contemporary interests as was originally aimed at only makes a book of this kind a truer homage to the man it celebrates.

I should like to thank the various contributors for the generous interest they have taken toward making the volume a success.
