Super-Infinite: The Transformations of John Donne - Winner of the Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction 2022


By (author): Katherine Rundell

**A Sunday Times top ten bestseller** **Shortlisted for the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Award 2023** **Shortlisted for the Duff Cooper Prize for Non-Fiction 2023** **Shortlisted for the Slightly Foxed First Biography Prize 2023** 'Masterly.' Observer 'Wonderful, joyous.' Maggie O'Farrell 'Frankly brilliant.' Sunday Times 'Unmissable.' Simon Jenkins 'Every page sparkles.' Claire Tomalin 'A triumph.' Matt Haig 'Stylish, scholarly and gripping.' Rose Tremain John Donne lived myriad lives. Sometime religious outsider and social disaster, sometime celebrity preacher and establishment darling, Donne was incapable of being just one thing. He was a scholar of law, a sea adventurer, an MP, a priest, the Dean of St Paul's Cathedral - and perhaps the greatest love poet in the history of the English language. In Super-Infinite, Katherine Rundell shows us the many sides of Donne's extraordinary life, his obsessions, his blazing words, and his tempestuous Elizabethan times - unveiling Donne as the most remarkable mind and as a lesson in living.
