These essays-written specifically for this book-provide a rich evaluation of this late 14th and early 15th-century mystical writer's book of revelations and considers the construction of her narrative, its theological complexity, and its literary and intellectual context. This casebook features discussions by both established scholars and newer voices ranging from genre to eschatology and gynecology to diabology, reflecting both current and comparative theory. Providing translations of all Middle English quotations, the volume includes a selective bibliography that provides a guide for further reading.
