About the Author:

Bonnie Wheeler teaches English and Medieval Studies at Southern Methodist University. She writes about medieval literature and culture, and she is the editor of the journal Arthuriana. Recent books include Eleanor of Aquitaine: Lord and Lady (Palgrave, 2003); Listening to Heloise: The Voice of a Twelfth-Century Woman (2000) ; On Arthurian Women: Essay in Memory of Maureen Fries; and The Malory Debate: The Texts of Le Morte Darthur.

Review:

"Rarely does a book of essays honoring a professor have the range, depth, and distinction of this one. Medievalists with very varied interests--Chaucer, Langland, Gower, the Gawain poet, Franciscan thought, the cycle plays, Margery Kempe, and many others--will all find important contributions in this outstanding collection. Elizabeth Kirk should be proud indeed of Mindful Spirit."--Gretchen Mieszkowski, University of Houston-Clear Lake

"This is a fascinating collection of interdisciplinary essays in honor of a fine scholar, ranging across literature and poetics, history, theology and iconography. Subjects include mnemonic techniques, affect and sovereignty in medieval drama, salvation and the soul in Piers Plowman, Wycliff's apparent support for women priests, and Amazons in La?amon. The volume includes important re-readings of poems by Chaucer in the light of contemporary events. Together, the essays form a medievalists' fair field, an of-the-moment display of work and wit."--David Lawton, Washington University in St Louis
