I need a detailed conclusion on metaphysical poetry.
Metaphysical poets, to take the early English poet John Donne as an example, weave very abstract philosophical questions into their poetry. This has came to be called 'metaphysical poetry.' That is not to say their poems are not still beautiful which is why John Donne is such a marvellous example - he uses rich symbolism and imagery in his poems too, which makes them exquisite. It is the marrying of the metaphysical and the imagery for example in the poem 'The Flea' which makes it so stunning. Metaphysical poetry deals which subjects such as Cause and Effect, the purpose of existence,searching for truth,matter and time. John Donne was able to make these subjects interesting through his clever ideas and witty ways of saying things. he used the philosophical concepts to turn an argument.
