The manuscript of The Book of Margery Kempe bears eloquent testimony to Kempe's fundamental understanding of the conventions within which she situated her work. Copied, probably slightly before 1450, by someone who signed himself Salthows on the bottom portion of the final page, the manuscript contains annotations by four hands. 7 Since the first page of the manuscript (British Library, Additional 61823) contains the rubric, "Liber Montis Gracie.

So despite Margery Kempe's wild unsuitability as a mystic, wife, author, or advisor, her book keeps finding its way to college campus bookstores all over the world. Or maybe it's because she conceals almost nothing, including mortifying struggles with sexual desire.

In this fresh, classroom-friendly volume, Margery Kempe, a married woman from fifteenth-century England, dictates her remarkable life story. Far from provincial, this extraordinary woman tells us about her business ventures in Lynn, her spiritual conversion and asceticism, and her travels all around Europe and the Holy Land while on pilgrimage. Kempe presents a splendidly detailed perspective of a woman from the rising middle class of the late Middle Ages, of a frequent pilgrim, and of a would-be saint gifted with spectacular crying. This edition, faithful to the original Middle English text but edited for accessibility to students, includes a gloss, notes, introduction, and a glossary, making The Book of Margery Kempe an excellent choice for any class interested in religion, gender, travel, or even daily life in late medieval Europe.

Only relatively recently available in modern English, Margery Kemp’s book is considered the first English autobiography. But it is no dry recitation of daily chores, but the story of her literally international quest for closeness to God. After a terrible illness accompanied by violent delirium, Kempe makes pilgrimage to Jerusalem and many other sites believed to bring worshippers closer to God. Her independence of mind is marked by a complete and astonishing failure to be self-effacing, submissive, or back down from her own understandings of God’s will for her life. It is most refreshing to learn that women weren’t always so placating.

I purchased this edition of the "Book of Margery Kempe" after consulting two other editions, one in the original Middle English, and one that attempted to modernize the text to make it more accessible. This edition is the best of both worlds. Lynn Staley provides an accessible, readable text while staying true to the original content. Staley's footnotes are also very helpful, providing information about people, places, and events discussed by Kempe. Also included in this volume is a selection of scholarly essays about the "Book of Margery Kempe" and examples of other writings of the early 15th Century. All in all, a lot of information in one volume, very useful, and reasonably priced. I'd recommend this for anyone interested in women in the later Middle Ages, female visionary experience in Christianity, and/or early examples of autobiography in English. I don't know if this volume will be accessible to high school students, but it's certainly appropriate for undergrads, graduate students, and anyone else interested in the fascinating figure of Margery Kempe.

Although I lived in Europe for several years, I had not read this book; now I wish I had known about Margery Kempe, and done some research. Dictated by a woman who could not read or write, she was very detailed about her experiences, and I learned quite a bit about the thinking processes, beliefs, and lifestyle of the period. Thoroughly enjoyable, I find it remarkable that it is not on more required reading lists in America. It offers a view not shared by many religious individuals: her crying, wailing, and writhing on the floors of cathedrals and holy places would make her appear unstable, as believed by her peers. However, her conversations with Holy Beings caused beliefs in some. How true to fact is her story? Only the believer, or wannabe believer, can answer that, but the truth is she was a remarkable woman for her time, achieved her goals - if she is believed.

Instead of some dry book written by some theologian, this is the tale of adventure of one woman who dared to be different, when she felt that was what God required of her. While her experiences may seem fantastical to us today, it shows what life was like centuries ago. The fact that the story survives is unusual, the fact that it is from a woman is rarer still, from a time when women couldn't even read or write (it was dictated to a man), or travel freely by the primitive transportation of the time.

GOOD READ

Margery, as a character, is painfully annoying, but her autobiography is an interesting look into religious norms of the time. This version in updated language is very smooth and makes for easy reading.
