‘This is a welcome and timely study of compilation, a widespread and highly influential medieval mode of writing that has been overshadowed by modern notions of authorship and originality. Denissen writes with sensitivity and understanding, and brings a holistic approach to these unjustly neglected Middle English devotional texts and their manuscripts.’ Margaret Connolly, University of St Andrews

‘A promising scholar’s brilliant study of three texts in their various shapes of transmission. Rich in detail and in fruitful conversation with earlier work on The Pore Caitif, The Tretyse of Love and A Talkyng of the Love of God, this book will revive interest in these fascinating devotional texts.’ Marleen Cré, University of Saint Louis
