John Donne was famous in his own time yet was virtually unknown in the eighteenth century. Haskin investigates what happened as Victorian readers, prompted by the enormous popularity of Izaak Walton's biography, began to gradually rediscover the poetry, before showing how Donne came to be seen as the discovery of T. S. Eliot and the modernists.
