- Author: Alla Renee 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 Words becomes flesh and dwells among us. It is an answer to Susan Sontag's call for an erotics of interpretation.
