Gender and the Sacred Self in John Donne

Elizabeth Hodgson

This first book-length feminist study of Donne argues that his sacred subject position is ambivalently and illustratively invested in cultural archetypes of mothers, daughters, and brides. The chapters focus on baptism, marriage, and death as key moments in Donne's and his culture's construction of the gendered soul. « less more »
