Through the reading records of Donne's poems and the concept of multiple referentiality, this study examines the social dimensions of early modern genres and the relationship among poetics, rhetoric and the Renaissance doctrines of imitation. The work places systematic attention on how the differences in oral and written modes of expression influenced the process of reading and the early modern understanding of genre.
