While Chanting is a religious and psychological novel, the bedrock of the narrative is personal and interior, as is reflected in the dozens of dreams experienced by the heroine which serve as a counterpoint to and a mirror of her bouts with doctrine. Principles of Jungian psychology add meaning and perspective both to her history and to events from the far past.
Finally, Chanting is also a feminist novel, not only because of the persona of the protagonist, but because she embraces heroic feminists throughout the ages who have stood up to patriarchy and the church. But for Colette, where will this embrace lead?
