  • Title: I Use but Comownycacyon and Good Wordys: Teaching and "The Book of Margery Kempe" [The author argues that scholars have tended to discount Kempe's inner life. Windeatt draws attention to her as a contemplative, praising the prayers throughout her book. Furthermore her conversations with Jesus Christ, Mary, and other holy figures offer important teachings for Margery and her readers. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
