What might contemporary thinkers learn from prayer? The seventeenth-century French philosopher Nicolas Malebranche suggested a possibility: that prayer teaches us how to “attend.” This book explores the precedents of Malebranche’s advice by reading John Donne’s poetic prayers in the context of what David Marno calls the art of holy attention. This requires an understanding of attention’s role in Christian devotion, which he provides by uncovering a tradition of holy attention that spans from ascetic thinkers and Church Fathers to Catholic spiritual exercises and Protestant prayer manuals. Donne’s devotional poems occupy a unique position in this tradition. Marno identifies in them a devotional model of thinking whose aim is to experience an affect of attention. Marno’s argument is framed by compelling close readings of “Death, be not proud,” Donne’s most triumphant poem about the resurrection. Elsewhere, Marno takes up Claudius’s prayer inHamlet and Saint Augustine’s account of attention in the Soliloquies and theConfessions. The book ends with a Coda on the aftermath of holy attention in the philosophies of Descartes and Malebranche.
