During the 17th century in England a very heterogeneous movement of poets marked the whole literary history of that period with the insertion of sophisticated elements in their poems: these poets took the name of metaphysical poets, also because they were able to introduce in contemporary poetry themes that were difficult to understand. Metaphysical poets, also because they introduced this themes and because they mixed elements taken from the physical world with philosophical elements, weren't positively judged by contemporaries: there was a revaluation of this movement only between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries with T. S. Eliot. Certainly the most important metaphysical poet was John Donne an intellectual who knew how to give his works strongly to some particular features and even to reveal the perfect combination between nature and the moral theme.
