The texts are newly edited from the manuscripts, and are supplemented with textual and explanatory notes and a glossary. The book focusses on five major authors, Richard Rolle, Walter Hilton, the anonymous author of The Cloud of Unknowing, Dame Julian of Norwich, and Margery Kempe. Shorter works are presented whole, where possible, and accompanied by extracts from the mystics' longer works; extracts from contemporary translations into English are also included to illustrate the reception of European mystical texts in later medieval England. Overall, this volume makes accessible some of the best work by English contemplatives and visionaries of the Middle Ages."@en ;
