Protesting Religion through Prayer John Donne is directly speaking to God in Holy Sonnet XIV. This kind of direct communication can be classified as a type of prayer because it makes direct references to religion, religious texts, and also includes direct requests aimed towards God. Donne is basically a daring sinner pleading with God for redemption in a risky way. He doubts his existence and is therefore using clever literary devices such as paradoxes and extended metaphors to protest and criticize purity and the rules of religion as well as to showcase his complex frustration. Donne is challenging God and testing his tolerance by speaking with him and using words such brutal and unpleasant words as “batter”, “overthrow”, “bend”, “burn”, “imprison”, “enthrall”, and “ravish”.
