Edward Herrmann brings tenderness and restraint to his performance of John Donne’s Love Poems.
The words of Donne (1572-1631) have endured for centuries because of the English poet’s wit, inventive language, and passion. In his poem "The Canonization",” Donne uses exaggerated metaphors to brag to a friend about the enduring nature of his love. In "The Paradox", Donne writes about the unknowable nature of love, comparing it to death.
In a mid-Atlantic accent, Herrman wrenches both the irony and the sentiment from each line of Donne’s immortal verse.
