Religious Renewal and Sexual Masochism in Batter my heart, three person'd God

- Religious Renewal and Sexual Masochism in "Batter my heart, three person'd God" In Donne's Holy Sonnet, "Batter my heart, three person'd God," themes of religious renewal and sexual masochism are abundant. While religious renewal is clearly the front-most, and most clearly defined meaning of the poem, the poet's choice of words and subtle analogies leave the poem wide open for speculation in sexual meaning. That John Donne was a preacher, the fire and brimstone, evangelical ringings of religious renewal in this poem are well founded....   [tags: Batter my heart Essays]

Batter My Heart And Three Personed God By John Donne

John Donne 's Holy Sonnet 14 : Batter My Heart, Three Personed God

- “For he who is called by the Lord as a slave is the Lord 's freedman. Likewise he who is called as a free man is Christ 's slave.” What the Apostle Paul was writing to the church of Corinth, Greece, seems to be intellectual paradox as a man cannot be a freedman and slave at the same time. This same idea is dealt with in John Donne’s “Holy Sonnet 14: Batter my Heart, Three Personed God” published in 1633. In this poem, the speaker is crying out to God to be set free from his slavery to sin and the evil one....   [tags: Poetry, Sonnet, Poetic form, Iambic pentameter]

The Holy Paradox in Donne's Batter My Heart

- The Holy Paradox in Donne's Batter My Heart   The great paradox of the Christian faith lies in the condition that in order to be truly free, the soul must first be rescued from the bondage of sin, then recaptured and completely conquered by God. One of the most profound expressions of this paradox is to be found in John Donne' poem, "Batter My Heart" (Meyer 882).

- A Restoration of Power: The Use of Metaphor, Simile and Imagery in John Donne's "Batter My Heart" In most world religions, deities, though almighty, are belittled and given human qualities as a way for human understanding. Unlike the typical attributing of human emotions and responses to a divine being, John Donne's Batter My Heart, takes the anthropomorphosis further by conveying God as three distinct figures: an inventor, a ruler, and a lover. However, though Donne's use of figures, such as metaphor and simile, humanize God, his use of violent imagery recovers the reverence of God's powerful divinity....   [tags: Poetry]
