Although John Donne enjoyed a reputation as a «visitor of ladies» during his lifetime, the poetry that he left in manuscript can lead modern readers to doubt that the objects of his affections were always women. Klawitter's study contends that, in Donne's later poems that have traditionally been read as heterosexual expressions of love, readers can find themselves lost in a welter of pronouns that, often insufficiently determinate of gender, can fit convincingly in a homoerotic context.
The Voicing of Same-Sex Love in the Poetry of John Donne
Letters by the Brother Founders of Notre Dame, 1841-1849-
Leipnitz & Partner and Georg Klawitter
In the first decade that the French Brothers of the Congregation of Holy Cross worked in the United States, they wrote letters back to their Superior General, Basil Moreau, in Le Mans. They also wrote to Edward Sorin at Notre Dame when, for one reason or another, they were away from their primary foundation in northen Indiana. Of the hundreds of letters written between 1841 and 1849, two hundred exist from twenty writers, reflecting the hardships and joys the pioneer Brothers experienced in a new world.
