This is the first appearance in print of most of the poems, published two years after the author’s death o The book was reprinted a number of times throughout the 17 centuryh  1635  1654  1649  1669  1650 o The collection was not a stable one, however, and the poems included varied from one edition to another. “To His Mistress Going to Bed” was not included until the 1669 edition. Coterie Poetry Arthur Marotti has argued that the basic features of Donne’s poetry resulted from its coterie character: - Creation of sense of familiarity and intimacy - Fondness of dialectic o Discovering the answers to questions by going back and forth - Intellectual complexity - Paradox and irony - Appeals to shared attitudes and group interests , and to private knowledge - Explicit gestures of biographical self-preferentiality [refers to oneself] English 204 2 Jan 16 2012
