A Poetics of Church

Full Product Description

In writing that is both literary and theological, Jennifer Reek invites us on an imaginative intellectual and spiritual journey away from an institutional model of Church into more radical, ambiguous 'sacred' spaces of text. She creates the latter by bringing together an unlikely but fruitful group: the 16th-century founder of the Jesuits, Ignatius of Loyola, the French thinkers Gaston Bachelard and Helene Cixous, the French poet Yves Bonnefoy, and the English playwright Dennis Potter. Inspired especially by Cixous, Reek attempts to exemplify her notion of ecriture feminine-'feminine writing'-that Cixous suggests 'will bring about alternative forms of relation, perception and expression', ones 'that will invent new worlds'.

A Poetics of Church by Jennifer Reek was published by Taylor & Francis Ltd in November 2017. The ISBN for A Poetics of Church is 9781472488381.
