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.

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.


"A wonderful, joyous piece of work . . . with fierce, interrogative intelligence. it is fantastic to have this most elusive and mysterious of men brought out into the light, for all to see. I just loved it." - Maggie O'Farrell

"Frankly brilliant . . . On reading this extraordinary biography you are left concluding that [Rundell's] talent, like that of her hero's, must somehow be super-infinite." ― Sunday Times

"Rundell captures John Donne's unique vision in all its power, eloquence and strangeness . . . she is 
the ideal person to evangelise him for our age." - Lara Feigel ― Guardian
