"This is a virtuoso study, a substantial, unusual, often brilliant contribution to Middle English stylistics and poetics."–Nicholas Watson, Harvard University

Poetics of the Incarnation examines fourteenth-century writers whose poetry and narrative explore the intellectual implications of the hypostatic union. The Incarnation inspired a working-through of the philosophical and theological implications of language while Middle English was emerging as a legitimate medium for theological expression.
