Title : Margery Kempe and the Ages of Woman [Phillips explores medieval ideas about women's lifecycle. Generally authors divided women's lives into three parts: maiden, wife, and widow.

In this regard, as in others, the "Book of Margery Kempe" presents a unique view of life. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
