    "In the constraints of this publication, it is impossible to amplify on all nineteen essays and the extensive apparatus of this book. This reviewer's hope is that readers will be convinced by the overview provided here that Inventing a Path: Studies in Honour of Mary Carruthers is an admirable volume worth reading for themselves. Congratulations to Mary Carruthers for many scholarly successes. Inventing a Path showcases the excellent work for which she has laid foundations." (Georgiana Donavin, in: The Medieval Review, 15.08.11)
