MEDIA REVIEWS
Elisabeth Dutton's translation of Julian of Norwich makes them eminently accessible. Many will find Julian's awareness of the sufferings of her own times congruous with those of today: 'There are evil deeds done in our sight and such great harm taken that it seems to us that it would be impossible that it should ever come to a good end.' Julian's exploration of the overwhelming assurance of the love which is God in this context will also speak even more profoundly to the reader today.--Benedicta Ward, Oxford University
Dutton's helpful introduction clearly sets out the main scholarly approaches to the text, while contributing some useful remarks on the way Julian's voice emerges from the midst of the visions she is describing. The translation draws attention to Julian's word play.--Santha Bhattacharji, Oxford University
The introduction is extremely useful, setting Julian in context but equally suggesting that her Revelations continue to be powerful and provocative beyond the immediate circumstances of their composition. Elisabeth Dutton is also most accomplished in her clear approach to the complexities of Julian's thought, managing to make her accessible without diminishing the difficulties and challenges of her theology. In her sensitive rendering of the original, Dutton manages to remain true to the fluidity and ambiguity of Julian' prose.--Annie Sutherland, Oxford University
On reading Revelations of Love, modernized by Elisabeth Dutton, one hears Julian of Norwich speaking. It is the medieval mystic's own choice of words and her play on key terms that are brought into relief here; it is her skill in coining phrases and suggestively repeating them that catches the attention of the present-day reader. And Dutton's care to preserve Julian's wording takes effect indeed. By keeping the aroma and the sharpness of the original, Dutton's rendering makes Revelations of Love become encounters with Julian and with the mystery that urged her to write.--Paul Mommaers, Antwerp University and Louvain Catholic University
