Used the term "metapysical" in a degrading way for Donnes work

Johnson
thought Donne was "yoked by violence", though Donne's work was "inappropriate", becuase of his respectability, interest in the metaphysicals died out for a while

T.S.Eliot
Liked the metaphysicals, thought Donnes work was "emotionally charged" and an "example of someone using intellectual rigour"
3 of 5
C.S.Lewis
Found Donne to be "too simple" for his tastes (seems shocking), considered HS XIV to be "a chaos of violence and transient passions"
