Julia Bolton Holloway's The Pilgrim and the Book: A Study of Dante, Langland and Chaucer investigates major fourteenth-century texts, the Commedia, Piers Plowman and The Canterbury Tales, in the light of the medieval theory and practice of pilgrimage, especially concentrating on Emmaus and Exodus paradigms. Holloway's analysis draws extensively on iconography, musicology, typology and anthropology. The concluding chapter explains why each poet places himself within his poem - in his own image - as a pilgrim.

About the Author:

The Author: Julia Bolton Holloway taught Medieval Studies at Princeton University and the University of Colorado, Boulder, after her 1974 University of California, Berkeley, doctorate. She has published three books on Brunetto Latino, Dante's teacher, two books on St. Birgitta of Sweden, the pilgrim and writer who influenced Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe, and has co-edited with Constance Wrigth two volumes of essays, Equally in God's Image: Women in the Middle Ages and Tales within Tales: Apuleius through Time. She lived as a child on the pilgrimage road to Canterbury, has traveled as a pilgrim to Walsingham, Compostela, Rome and Jerusalem, and has now returned to England, to the Community of the Holy Family, Holmhurst St. Mary, St. Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex.

Review:

«This is a dense and learned book, and it makes more fundamental and incidental observations about what pilgrimage meant to Dante, Langland and Chaucer than any previous studies. ... Holloway practices an exuberant and alert exegetical criticism ...» (Christian K.Zacher, Studies in the Age of Chaucer)
«Her work with Dante is often illuminating; her insights on Langland frequently go to the heart of the poem; the breadth of material that she presents shows the zeal with which she has pursued her topic. This is a book that, by its very nature, evokes delight and chagrin; it is a book that, in every sense, should be read with care.» (Howard H.Schless, Speculum)
