English Mystics of the Middle Ages by Barry Windeatt

Book Description

This edition brings together for the first time key texts representing the writings of the medieval English mystics. The texts have been newly edited from early manuscripts, and are supplemented with textual and explanatory notes and a glossary. The book focuses on five major authors, Richard Rolle, Walter Hilton, the anonymous author of The Cloud of Unknowing, Dame Julian of Norwich, and Margery Kempe. Shorter works are presented whole, where possible, and accompanied by extracts from the mystics' longer works; extracts from contemporary translations into English are also included to illustrate the reception of European mystical texts in later medieval England. Overall, this volume makes accessible some of the finest writing by English contemplatives and visionaries of the Middle Ages.

Julian of Norwich by Barry Windeatt Julian of Norwich, Hardback (October 2016)

Julian of Norwich (1342-c.1416) is the earliest author writing in English who can be identified as a woman. This edition offers a generously annotated original language edition of her Revelations of Divine Love, a landmark text in the history of women's writing in English.

How to be a Medieval Woman by Barry Windeatt How to be a Medieval Woman, Paperback (March 2016)

Brave, outspoken and guaranteed to annoy people wherever she went - including exasperated fellow pilgrims in Jerusalem and her long-suffering husband - Margery Kempe was one of the most vivid and unforgettable voices of the Middle Ages.

Revelations of Divine Love by Barry Windeatt Revelations of Divine Love, Paperback (May 2015)

Julian of Norwich is one of the subtlest writers and profoundest thinkers of the Middle Ages, and the earliest woman writer in English. Her Revelations describe a loving and merciful God and a positive vision of humanity. This sensitive new translation conveys the poise and serenity of her style, and includes the two versions of her text.

Troilus and Criseyde by Barry Windeatt Troilus and Criseyde, Paperback (November 2008)

Chaucer's masterpiece and one of the greatest narrative poems in English, the story of the lovers Troilus and Criseyde is renowned for its deep humanity and penetrating psychological insight. This new translation into modern English by a major Chaucerian scholar includes an index of the names relating to the Trojan War and an Index of Proverbs.
