The title of this thesis, JOHN DONNE: ENGLISH MASTER OF GONGORISM, may seem perplexing to some, presumptuous to others. However, the purpose of this thesis will be to present evidence, through a textual study of the poetic style of both John Donne (1572-1631) and Don Luis de Göngora (1561-1627), which will verify the assumption that Donne was poetically influenced by Góngora.
