This book is the first volume to be published in The Oxford Edition of the Sermons of John Donne, which presents the largest prose output of one of the most celebrated poets and preachers of the seventeenth century. The edition provides freshly edited texts arranged by place of delivery instead of (often speculative) chronology, and offers a wealth of explanatory material for specialist and non-specialist readers alike. Volume III contains the fourteen sermons preached by Donne at the court of Charles I, between the king's accession in 1625 and Donne's death in 1631. It includes the first sermon preached before Charles as king, and Donne's final sermon, known as Deaths Dvell. In each case an authoritative text has been established by freshly collating multiple copies of the seventeenth-century print editions. The introduction describes the institutional and physical context of Donne's Caroline court sermons and analyses his style of preaching and doctrinal positions. For the first time, the sermons appear with a full critical apparatus: headnotes to each sermon describe its textual state and supply local historical context and suggestions for further reading, while extensive commentaries trace Donne's use of his sources, translate passages in foreign languages, and gloss important and unfamiliar words.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In this volume, David Colclough has produced an outstanding work of scholarship. If the first publication of the new project is indicative, The Oxford Edition of the Sermons Of John Donne will stand as the authoritative edition for many generations to come. * Patrick J. Murray, University of Glasgow. *
The Oxford Donne will be the definitive text for decades. Containing an introductory essay by a leading scholar, meticulous textual scholarship, separate commentary on each sermon, and detailed end-notes, Volume Three is a formidable resource. From what's on offer here, the series promises to be a once-in-a-century piece of Donne scholarship. * James McNamara, Times Literary Supplement *
bold and brilliant in design, impeccably annotated and dizzyingly full ... This edition epitomizes what scholarship at its best can do, in presenting the texts beautifully and, in its notes, providing an invariably lucid account of the contexts in which the sermons make sense. * Kevin Killeen, Seventeenth Century *
[An] intensively researched volume * Blair Worden, London Review of Books *
