Made Flesh

Made Flesh explores the ways in which the works of John Donne, George Herbert, Richard Crashaw, Edward Taylor, and other devotional poets negotiated the strange triangulation of body, word, and meaning in the Eucharist, effectively reproducing the interpretative challenges of sacramental worship.
