Show Summary Details


This concluding chapter summarises the various aspects of Southwell's life and work that were studied in the previous chapters, considering his ministry, poetry and sermons, all of which were based on his wish to be one with Christ. It then takes a look at Southwell's creative autonomy, the expressions of pain in his poetry and his rhetorical sensitivity. One section is devoted to a review of ‘The Burning Babe’, and the chapter concludes that Southwell's poetic packages need to be completely unwrapped in order to find their value.
