Supernatural Sonnets of John Donne Retold by Warlock Vorobok

Written by Joe Armstrong, Content Specialist, Marketing, Downtown Main Library

Spurned love is the subject of many famous Shakespeare works, written in vivid prose and imagery. Another English poet at the time, John Donne expressed the tragedy of heartbreak in a more supernatural manner. With witches and ghosts abounding in spooky sonnets, listen closely as CHPL’s Warlock Vorobok reads two of Donne’s most chilling poems, The Apparition and Witchcraft by a Picture.
