LIES 2013: Saints and Sinners: Postmodernism, Feminism and Medievalism in Literature in English

Friday, October 5, 2012 - 2:50am
Department of English Literature and Literary Linguistics at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland

'I am a stranger in this world' says the nun, the narrator of a story of a forbidden book by Marguerite Porete. The year is 1340, thirty years after Marguerite was burned at the stake for writing and disseminating her heretical work, The Mirror of Simple Souls. The place is England, a Cistercian nunnery where she tells her story the night before her death, knowing that the book irretrievably changed but also shortened her life. But the idea of being a stranger in the world is not an uncommon one for many other Michele Roberts' characters.
