dc.description.abstractIn "La navire" and "Le miroir de Jhesus Christ crucifié", Marguerite de Navarre uses a death-in-life trope to help her readers experience these texts as a personal space for acknowledging their attachment to earthly struggles. Through the debate form, she also steers her readers toward questioning conventional images of faith and striving to attain the wisdom envisioned by the Evangelical movement. The transformative power of death allows readers to link reading to silent meditation, cutting oneself off from the outside world, as Marguerite makes room for a more integrative voice that echoes her vision of a forgiving and charitable God.en_US
