Regular price $75.00 Sale

Best known as a poet, John Donne also wrote witty prose. These Paradoxes and Problems were probably written while he was a student at Lincoln's Inn. Paradoxes such as "That by Discord things increase" and "That Nature is our worst Guide" are still thought-provoking to this day and much humour is provoked by "problemes" such as "Why Puritanes make long Sermons?" and "Why do Women delight much in Feathers?"
