John Donne

Lesson from the Shenzhen Daily:
http://szdaily.sznews.com/html/2012-12/10/content_2308582.htm

Practice the conversation; study the vocabulary; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

Questions:
1. Do you agree that "No man is an island"?
2. Donne's "Meditation XVII," like a lot of literature, is about death. Why do you think this is such a popular topic for writers?
3. Are you surprised to learn that a minister wrote poems about love and sex? Why or why not?
