  2. 2. HISTORY OF METAPHYSICAL POETRY John Donne was the founder of the metaphysical poetry. He tried to write poetry in a different way. The name ‘metaphysical poetry’ is given by Dr. Samuel Johnson for the first time. When he wrote the life of Abrahum Cowley in his book “ The Lives”. But he used it in a negative sense to critise the poetry of Donne and his followers but the same term became a mark of the APPRAISAL of the metaphysical poetry.

  4. 4. BIRD’S VIEW ON METAPHYSICAL POETRY - Metaphysical poets were literate and degree holders .Display their scholarship through metaphysical poetry. - Differentiate themselves from Elizabethan writers. Didn’t use traditional images and conceits in their poetry. - According to critic, Helen C. White, If the poets would have written the poetry like their formers, they would be rejected. Because it was the time when reading class were increased and these poets fed their hunger of exersinging their mind

It is a self contradictory. But it has something in its deep. Eg. The Chriastian way of saying that we only gain life by loosing it.
