Item description for Poetry of Hadewijch (Studies in Spirituality) (Studies in Spirituality Supplements) by M. van Baest...

The Stanzaic Poems, written by Hadewijch of Antwerp in the 13th century, are a body of 45 lyrical poems in stanzas. They are daring God-talk in the guise of courtly love songs. Hadewijch uses the linguistic style of chivalry but her poems are by no means courtly poetry. She shifts the current meaning of chivalry by transferring its context to a field of meaning focused on God. Stanzaic Poems are an exponent of the age old tradition of women's songs - of which the Song of Songs is the best known example - and as such they are an expression of a particular manner of keeping company with God: they celebrate a relationship of mutuality between partners equivalent in love. lovers: the raging desire of 'orewoet': the gentility of humankind's origin. Middle-Dutch into Modern English prose. Schillebeeckx (Peeters 1998) With an introduction by Edward
