Julian of Norwich's Literary Legacy by Luke Penkett
Published by Darton, Longman & Todd 31st March 2023

‘This book is a systematic linguistic study, and commentary upon Julian’s A  Vision Showed to a Devout Woman. Luke Penkett draws attention to Julian’s stylistic brilliance and clarifies complicated passages for the contemporary   reader. He builds upon the wisdom of the most recent scholarly research, to  inspire fresh insight into the earliest known record of a woman writing in the English language.’  

In his Foreword to the book The Right Reverend Graham Usher Bishop of Norwich writes: ‘This book makes connections with the work of other authors who may have influenced Julian’s writing.  As far as I’m aware, this is the only published systematic study of Julian as a writer.’
