I need help finding various readings on John Donne's poem "Death be not Proud" from a feminist standpoint and a linguistic standpoint. Thank you!

Here someone contrasts Emily Dickinson's view of death to that of some male poets, including Donne in that poem. That might give you a handle.

Also, if you can find it at the library, this book might mention the poem you're working on:

John Donne's Articulations of the Feminine
(Oxford English Monographs)
by H. L. Meakin
Clarendon Pr; December 1998
"Using the cultural criticism of French feminist philosopher
Luce Irigaray, Meakin explores works throughout Donne's career, from his earliest verse letters to sermons preached while Divinity Reader at Lincoln's Inn and Dean of St. Paul's in London." —The Publisher.
