The Variorum Edition of the Poetry of John DonneVolume 2. The Elegies Gary A. Stringer, General Editor. Ted-Larry Pebworth, Gary A. Stringer, and Ernest W. Sullivan, II, Text Editors. John R. Roberts, Volume Commentary Editor. Diana Benet, Contributing Editor

The newest volume in the critical variorum of the poetry of John Donne.

From reviews of previous volumes:

"This variorum edition will be the basis of all future Donne scholarship." -- Chronique

"Academic libraries and specialists in Renaissance and 17th-century studies should feel compelled to own each and every volume of this series." -- Seventeenth Century News

"An occasion for celebration. Among the most ambitious and valuable collaborative scholarly enterprises at the end of the twentieth century. Superb." -- Early Modern LiteraryStudies

This latest addition to the Donne variorum, the third to appear in a projected eight-volume series, presents a newly edited critical text of Donne's elegies and a comprehensive variorum commentary. As with previous volumes, Volume 2 is based on a study of all known manuscript sources and significant printed editions of Donne's poetry and on an examination of the criticism and scholarship of the past four centuries.
