          The paper reprinted below appeared in The Explicator in 1996, and the journal has generously authorized its use on this site.
          On February 4, 1994, I presented a paper titled “George Herbert’s ‘Double Pleasures’: Suppressed Design and Rhyme-Scheme Wit in ‘The Collar’” at the South Central Conference on Christianity and Literature in Shreveport, Louisiana. This paper developed an argument similar to what is reprinted here.
