His passport photograph suggests he was at least one step beyond normal



The Wiki says he was a womanising writer of erotic poetry.  Why does that not surprise me
Well, whatever nevermind

To be fair he really could write

No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.

 
John Donne
