DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

This is a fascinating literary-critical study of the ways the Virgin Mary has been presented in English poetry, from the later Middle Ages to today. It includes several focused studies on a particular poet and his/her representation of the Virgin, blending historical, theological and cultural issues with the dominant literary-critical approach.
