Gender and the Sacred Self in John Donne

Synopsis

"Gender and the Sacred Self in John Donne, one of the first book-length feminist studies of this important metaphysical poet, explores John Donne's contributions to the problems of gendered subjectivity in Tudor and Stuart spiritual culture. It argues that Donne's sacred subject position is ambivalently and illustratively invested in cultural archetypes of mothers, daughters, and brides."
