The Life and Text of Julian of Norwich

The Poetics of Enclosure

Series:

M. Diane F. Krantz

The Life and Text of Julian of Norwich considers the Long Text of the Medieval mystic Julian of Norwich from a literary and rhetorical perspective. Dr. Krantz analyzes Julian's text as a product of both the mystic's piety and the pressures of her time. Julian's calling and her text are reflected in and reflect, structurally, imagistically, and thematically, the centrality of the enclosing Mother in her life and thoughts.
