Gender and the Sacred Self in John Donne

by Elizabeth M. A. Hodgson

         ISBN: 978-1611491845

         Published in 1999


         Order Book

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.
