Title : Margery Kempe and King’s Lynn [King’s Lynn, Kempe’s hometown in East Anglia, played a central role in shaping her self-image. Home, family, social networks, and domestic space are key concerns for Kempe, whose “Book” expresses a tension between the desire for inclusion (acceptance by the townspeople) and the simultaneous desire to be excluded by society (in order to have her special social status acknowledged). Kempe’s double perspective resolves the perceived opposition between her guarded, private married life and her highly active public life. The article includes two appendices (a list of the citizens of King’s Lynn and a list of Kempe’s neighbors) and a map of medieval King’s Lynn. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
