“The pillars of Donne’s biblical, Protestant poetics are: that the scriptures are the most eloquent books in the world, that God is a witty and also ‘a figurative, a metaphoricall God,’and that the religious lyric poet should endeavor to ‘write after . . . [his] Copie.'” (Lewalski, Protestant Poetics, p.282).
