The Book of Margery Kempe (Classics)
The story of difficulties with her husband, lone pilgrimages abroad, uncontrollable tears, meditation and visions is remarkable and touching less as a work of mysticism, but as a portrait of the world of a medieval woman, and a record of human faith.

The Book of Margery Kempe (Oxford World’s Classics)
The Book of Margery Kempe : Anthony Bale :
In her life and her boisterous devotion, Kempe antagonized many of those around her; yet she also garnered friends and supporters who helped to record her experiences. Her Book opens a window to the medieval world, and provides a fascinating portrait of one woman's life, aspirations, and prayers. This new translation preserves the forceful narrative voice of Kempe's Book and includes a wide-ranging introduction and useful notes.
For over years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. This new translation by Anthony Bale is presented in idiomatic modern English, but aims to stay true to the style of the original, sometimes homely and familiar, sometimes high-flown and Latinate. It's wonderfully readable, and has an excellent introduction and notes. Altogether a great pleasure.
Anthony Bale's notes add a huge amount of value too, providing much needed context, and raising interesting questions about the material. Margot Northey, Bradford A. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford.
