Reviews

"Winkelman's book offers his readers one of the most thought-provoking and well-documented studies of the recent developments in cognitive science and their rich implications for how we read and mentally respond to John Donne's highly dramatic and unprecedented early modern poetry. As the study clearly demonstrates, the reader's cognitive response is a vital element in the poem's expression of an inner reality." - Helen B. Brooks, Department of English, Stanford University
