oRevises the current state of Donne biography...[This book] shows that recent studies just do not know what they are talking about.O NM. Thomas Hester, North Carolina State University oFlynn's book is important OrecoveryO work.O NAchsah Guibbory, University of Illinois This book attempts to solve the puzzle of John Donne's earliest portrait by placing his early life in the contexts of his family's descent from Sir Thomas More and his circle, and of their generations-long association with the ancient Catholic nobility. Seen within a larger familial, social, and religious context in which exile and persecution for religious belief were the overriding experiences, the distinctive marks of Donne's personality emerge with new clarity. An important contribution to Donne studies, Flynn's book will have a impact on how Donne's poetry is read.
