* LaserGuidedKarma: A big believer in it, specifically of sickness reflecting a person's inner sin. His famous phrases, "No man is an island" and "For whom the bell tolls" (both from the same work, "Meditation XVII"), were all about this.

!!Tropes associated with John Donne:

* AuthorTract: His later poems are like this as he began to worry about death. Then again, most poetry is this anyway.
* BadassBeard: Have you seen it?
* MyGirlIsASlut: Many of his poems and essays are about how wonderful women are who sleep around. Seeing as how this is John Donne, (see UnreliableNarrator) it's difficult to tell whether he was being serious or sarcastic. Throughout history, people have argued both ways.
