John Donne's Christian VocationPublic Deposited
John Donnes poetry is often difficult and perplexing, even more so because it undergoes a shift away from secular topics after he converts and begins to lead a religious life. Robert S. Jacksons John Donnes Christian Vocation is one of the first studies that takes seriously the ways that Donnes Christian vocation permeates all of Donnes writings, not just those after his conversion, but even those prior to it. Jacksons study remains significant today because the religion and literature movement has focused renewed attention on Donne and his writing, and numerous critics and scholars use John Donnes Christian Vocation as a model for their own scholarship on Donne.
