DescriptionKatherine Austen's untitled reflections on Donne's funeral sermon for Sir William Cokayne. It is likely that she worked from the first print witness of this sermon, in John Donne, LXXX Sermons, &c. (London, 1640). For more information about the sermon itself, see Peter McCullough, 'Preaching and Context: John Donne's Sermon at the Funerals of Sir William Cokayne', in The Oxford Handbook of the Early Modern Sermon, ed. by Peter McCullough, Hugh Adlington and Emma Rhatigan (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2011), pp. 213-267.
