Over there, at least half the population knows Donne is a Metaphysical, was a contemporary of Shakespeare's, read law, married Ann and wrote the most erotic poems ever.
Hey, they had 14+ children, the man knew what he was talking about.
Not being funny or anything, but I don't know who John Donne was, have never read him and know absolutely zero about the guy.
And I'm absolutely 100% sure that half the population of the UK don't even know what the word "metaphysical" means.
Us Brits are just as stupid as you Americans, but on a smaller scale because our country's smaller.
