In brief the term 'Metaphysical Poetry' implies the characteristics of complexity, intellectual tone, abundance of subtle wit, fusion of intellect and emotion, colloquial argumentative tone, conceits (always witty and fantastic), scholarly allusions, dramatic tone, and philosophic or reflective element

John Donne (1572 – 31 de março de 1631) foi um poeta jacobino inglês, pregador e o maior representante dos poetas metafísicos da época. Sua obra é notável por seu estilo sensual e realista, incluindo-se sonetos, poesia amorosa, poemas religiosos, traduções do latim, epigramas, elegias, canções, sátiras e sermões.
