Early in Donne’s life, his brother was incarcerated “for giving sanctuary to a proscribed Catholic priest” and met his death through fever while serving his time (Smith). The untimely and unfortunate death of his brother sent Donne down a path of religious questioning. Though raised as a Catholic, Donne began to wonder what sort of God would permit his brother not only to be arrested, but also to die for helping a fellow believer. The ensuing uncertainty young Donne was struggling with can be seen reflected in his first two volumes of work, Satires and Songs and Sonnets.
