The third edition of the Literary Wall “Acta Diurna” of the Faculty of Liberal Arts was launched and the endeavors were taken by the students of B.A. Honors School in English. The wall for the month is dedicated to John Donne, English metaphysical poet, Anglican divine, and pulpit orator, is ranked with Milton as one of the greatest English poets. He is also a supreme artist in sermons and devotional prose.
He coined several well-known phrases such as ‘no man is an island’ and ‘for whom the bell tolls’ (the latter of which Ernest Hemingway used as the title for one of his novels). He became a priest in 1615 and in 1621 was appointed Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral in London. He was the grandson of playwright John Heywood and the great-great-nephew of Sir Thomas More.
