Notes

CHAPTER 1. INTRODUCTION

1. C.A. Patrides, ed., The Complete English Poems of John Donne, (London: Dent, 1985), 194, line 31. All subsequent references to the Songs and Sonets are from this edition and will list page and line numbers.

2. Patrides, Complete English Poems, 184–85, lines 21–40.

3. John Donne, The Sermons of John Donne, ed. George R. Potter and Evelyn Simpson, 10 vols. (Berkeley and Los Angeles: University of California Press, 1957), vol. 6, 283. All subsequent citations will be from this edition and will list volume and page number.

4. Juliet Fleming similarly describes the Elizabethan “lady's author” who “while … “he” associates himself with a set of attributes that he represents as 'female,' that association rarely changes or compromises the real and symbolic allegiances he possesses as a male.” “The ladies' man and the Age of Elizabeth,” in Sexuality and gender in early modern Europe: Institutions, texts, images, ed. James Grantham Turner (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1993), 158.

5. “Women among the Metaphysicals: A Case, Mostly, of Being Donne for,” in Critical Essays on John Donne, ed. Arthur F. Marotti (New York: G. K. Hall, 1994), 38. See also Elizabeth D. Harvey, Ventriloquized Voices: Feminist Theory and English Renaissance Texts (London: Routledge, 1992), 78: “voice … is often ambiguously and complicatedly gendered, crossing the boundaries between sexes with a freedom largely unacknowledged by current theoretical treatments of voice.”

6. Anthony Low, The Reinvention of Love: Poetry, Politics and Culture from Sidney to Milton (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1993), 81.

7. Elaine Scarry mistakenly assumes that this great number of woman scholars working on Donne is a sign of his inherent generosity to “woman.” Elaine Scarry, “Donne: 'But yet the body is his booke',” in Literature and the Body: Essays on Populations and Persons, ed. Elaine Scarry (Baltimore and London: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1988), 104, n. 29.

8. “Seventeenth-Century Literature,” in Re-Drawing the Boundaries: The Transformation of English and American Literary Studies, eds. Stephen Greenblatt and Giles Gunn (New York: MLA, 1992).

9. Katharine Eisaman Maus and Elizabeth D. Harvey, eds., Soliciting Interpretation: Literary Theory and Seventeenth-Century English Poetry (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1990), xiii.

10. David Norbrook, “The Monarch of Wit and the Republic of Letters: Donne's Politics,” Maus and Harvey, Soliciting Interpretation, 13. Louis Martz's The Poetry of Meditation (New Haven: Yale University Press, 1954) and Barbara K. Lewalski's Protestant Poetics and the Seventeenth-Century Religious Lyric (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1979) are the two most eminent examples of this tradition.
