Overview

This original investigation deals with the procedure Donne used in dilating" a text into a sermon. An analysis of Donne's sermon on Psalm 32:1-2 exemplifies the way in which he divided his text and accordingly structured his discourse. This framework can then be filled out by multiplying the significations of words and figures. Donne's sermons are therefore shown to be a form in which reading and creative literary expression meet."
