Poetry Landmarks

Donne's effigy, St Paul's Cathedral


(Associated Place)


nominated by: Dame Antonia Byatt

It was the only monument to survive the Great Fire of 1666. It was sculpted from life but shows him in his shroud. It is a real connection with him and his poetry and the way he saw the world.
