I reread this for my Berkeley TA-ship with a Donne scholar. He made a lovely point about reading poetry as the rigorous discipline of attention and connected this focusing of attention with a Donne sermon about unifying the soul. Also, he looked at Donne's relationship to Petrarch, whose sonnets were the first poetry we covered this term, bringing the course full circle on the last official day of class. I might say rereading sonnet sequences this term helped me foster mindfulness and connection with Donne's cruel Petrarchan mistress of a God.

Praise for previous volumes:
"This variorum edition will be the basis of all future Donne scholarship." —Chronique

This is the 4th volume of The Variorum Edition of the Poetry of John Donne to appear. This volume presents a newly edited critical text of the Holy Sonnets and a comprehensive digest of the critical-scholarly commentary on them from Donne’s time through 1995. The editors identify and print both an earlier and a revised authorial sequence of sonnets, as well as presenting the scribal collection—which contains unique authorial versions of several of the sonnets—inscribed by Donne’s friend Rowland Woodward in the Westmoreland manuscript.
