"More than kisses, letters mingle souls." John Donne

John Donne (1572-1631) was an English poet and cleric in the Church of England. He is considered the pre-eminent representative of the metaphysical poets. His works are noted for their strong, sensual style and include sonnets, love poems, religious poems, Latin translations, epigrams, elegies, songs, satires and sermons.

I particularly like his collected sermons - delivered as The Bishop of St. Paul's Cathedral, London!

Not a spoiler, but fun to see how it works: Mel Brooks put together entirely different teams - one for the London story - and one for the New York story - different set designers, costumes, props, everything. It doesn't jump out at you, but once you know, you say "Aha!"


I thought I'd seen 84 CCR, but after looking it up, I don't think I did. Must do so! My daughter is between jobs and before returning to Boston, pressed me to come for a visit, so I'm heading up on Saturday. I think she'd enjoy it too.


I got turned on to John Donne from the film about books - "84 Charring Cross Road" - and oh how I wanted to be Helene Hanff! Bought the dvd and paused it, every time she mentioned a book or author. I did images to post here on the film, but they're still in the wings. Ann Bancroft is Helene in New York City, and Anthony Hopkins is the bookshop clerk at 84 Charring Cross Road in London (and yes, I made a pilgrimage to the site). Directed by Bancroft's husband, Mel Brooks - who sly nutty humor shows up occasionally. Well, Helene is big on Donne's sermons. . . and they sent me over the moon!


Beautiful thought. Thank you, Audrey. I haven't done Donne yet and need to get on it!
