The Book of Margery Kempe

A Woman’s Life in the Middle Ages. The dictated recollections of Margery Kempe, born in Bishop’s Lynn (now King's Lynn), in about 1373. Described by the editor as the earliest surviving autobiographical writing in English, it was discovered in 1934. Striving to live a life of commitment to God, Kempe negotiated a celibate marriage with her husband, and began to make pilgrimages around Europe to holy sites – including Rome, Jerusalem, and Santiago de Compostela.
