This tenth, and final, volume in the series of The Variorum Edition of the Poetry of John Donne presents newly edited critical texts of 32 love lyrics. Based on an exhaustive study of the manuscripts and printed editions in which these poems have appeared, Volume 4.3 details the genealogical history of each poem, accompanied by a thorough prose discussion. The volume also presents a comprehensive digest of the commentary on these Songs and Sonets from Donne's time through 1999. Arranged chronologically within sections, the material for each poem is organized under various headings that complement the volume's companions, Volume 4.1 and Volume 4.2.
