(p.1) Introduction
John Donne's Articulations of the Feminine

H. L. Meakin

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about the articulation of the feminine in the prose and poetry of English poet John Donne. This book analyses a number of Donne's more neglected works including his early verse letters, an epithalamium, a wedding sermon, the heroical epistle Sappho to Philaenis, and the epitaph and funeral elegy written for Elizabeth Drury. It examines Donne's portrayal of the individual feminine figures in his works and his representations of the relations between gender positions.

Keywords:   John Donne, English poet, femininity in poetry, Sappho to Philaenis, epithalamium, funeral elegy, Elizabeth Drury
