ABSTRACT
The article analyzes several poems by John Donne such as "La Corona," "Good Friday, 1613," and "The Crosse." The author focuses on the poems as Donne's imaginative response to the Crucifixion of Jesus Chris and his view of the Crucifixion as the means of man's redemption. She also discusses how the blood of Christ was a common theme and inspiration for Donne, as were Christ's body and soul. Donne's inspiration from the Passion of Christ is also analyzed.
