The Word's Body: An Incarnational Aesthetic of Interpretation


The Word’s Body: An Incarnational Aesthetic of Interpretation by Alla Renée Bozarth


"The Word's Body integrates depth psychology and linguistic philosophy to illuminate a metaphor of the creative process, specifically the performance of literature in public or private as 'the word becoming flesh.' This book expands the Johannine metaphor to describe the artist/performer/preacher's work of embodying the Word: Creation, Incarnation, and Transformation/Communion: The Word becomes flesh and dwells among us. It is an answer to Susan Sontag’s call for an erotics of interpretation."
