The Book of Margery Kempe (c. 1436-8) is the extraordinary account of a medieval woman. Known as the earliest autobiography written in the English language, Kempe's Book describes her dramatic transformation from businesswoman, mother (16 children), and wife to pilgrim. She vividly describes her prayers and visions, before dedicating herself to her spiritual calling. She travelled to the most holy sites of the medieval world, including Rome and Jerusalem.

In her life Kempe antagonized many of those around her; yet she also garnered friends and supporters who helped to record her experiences: she dictated them because she could not write herself. Her Book opens a window on to the medieval world, and provides a fascinating portrait of one woman's life, aspirations, and prayers. This new translation preserves the forceful narrative of Kempe's Book and includes a wide-ranging introduction and useful notes.
