Really John Donne is the pioneer poet to present diversity in his works regarding the love themes and metaphysical concepts. This paper shows that really John Donne was a unique poet in his writing style of metaphysical and love poetry. As Donne’s poems are concerned they do possess subtle metaphysical and love ideology with great intellect and genius. The Flea‟ presents the subtle metaphysical ideology of a distressed lover when he stops his beloved holding her hand from slashing out a flea. ‘Sweetest Love I do not go’ is a fine example of balance between intense love and longing for the beloved. The Ecstasy is an important Metaphysical poem in which Donne’s idea of ecstasy drawn from Plotinus. “Death be not proud” presents an argument against the power of death.
