About

John Donne was a poet of both religion, metaphysis and the world of sensations. After having worked with John Donnes poetry in all these years, Ketil Bjørnstad continues to find new dimensions in his poetry and texts, and in it he also finds music. The language, rythms, the silence between the sentences – a wish to find understanding and comfort in the human presence here on earth. Donnes’ dramatic life is reflected in the texts, and in them rests a source of passion and music.
