An analytical study of Max Jacob’s religious poetry, the author approaches her project from a post-structuralist and post-freudian perspective, handling well the ambiguities, the multi-voiced dialectics, and the interface between fusion with and fragmentation from the divine that populate Jacob’s poetry.
