The Incarnation of Language investigates how the notion of incarnation has been employed in phenomenology and how this has influenced literary criticism. It then examines the interest that Joyce and Proust share in the concept of incarnation. By examining the themes of synthesis and embodiment that incarnation connotes for these writers, it offers a new reading of their work departing from critical readings that have privileged notions of radical alterity and difference.

."..stimulating reading for those with an interest in phenomenological-theological approaches to literature. Proustians and Joyceans looking for alternative approaches to their corpus will also find substantial food for thought." - French Studies, January 2009
