About the PublisherYet the savagery

Paul's, John Stubbs's biography is a portrait of an extraordinary writer and his country at a time of bewildering and cruel transformation. The first Baronet was followed by his three sons in succession, the last of whom was succeeded by his two sons in turn. Argent, a wyvern wings displayed and tail nowed gules.

About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Yet the savagery of the religious conflict and the pain of personal loss made Donne ask if sectarian differences were really worth dying for. John Donne too was expected to play his part in preserving the Roman Church from being exterminated by Elizabeth's Protestant regime. His mother went into exile for her family's beliefs, and his brother was imprisoned for concealing a priest from government agents.

Instead he embarked on a personal reformation, a search for a God who could unite everyone. The years in which it is included have been thus summarised by one of the highest and most recent of English authorities.
