Katherine Rundell – on Super-Infinite: The Transformations of John Donne.

What do we know about John Donne and his myriad lives?
One thing’s for sure: he was more than mere poet!
In her newly-published and very modern biography of John Donne, known as ‘the poet of love, sex, and death’, prizewinning author Katherine Rundell, who writes both about books and tightrope walking, who spent part of her childhood in Africa before eventually becoming a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, tells a fascinating story of perhaps the greatest love poet in the history of the English language, showing us the many sides of Donne’s extraordinary life.

The SWINDON FESTIVAL OF LITERATURE takes place 2nd – 8th May. It celebrates things well thought, well written, and well said, both serious and funny!

Seven days of great authors and entertaining speakers, it will include novelists, poets, philosophers, travellers, scientists, storytellers, historians, comedians, artists, and writing workshops There will be events at midday, teatime, and in the evening, carefully spaced and placed to enable you to attend almost every one, should you have the stamina!
