Margery Kempe is a tale of romantic obsession. It chronicles two relationships which take place in disparate worlds, separated by five centuries. The failed saint Margery Kempe lived in the fifteenth century, when she wrote what is believed to be the first autobiography. In Robert Glck's Margery Kempe, the author's love for a young man, L., frames the story of Kempe's mythical sexual desire and emotional passion for Jesus. Inspired by popular devotional literature of the 1400s and filled with lush details of life at that time, Margery Kempe is Robert Glck's finest work to date.
