About this deal

Due religiose sensibili ed estreme che trovano finalmente il loro spazio in "Abbi pietà del mio piccolo dolore". Peccato che per le prime 141 pagine di 170 non succede niente, solo allora le due si incontrato, fino a quel momento riporta in maniera del tutto monotona i loro pensieri.

In "Abbi pietà del mio piccolo dolore", Victoria MacKenzie dà spazio a entrambi gli aspetti -quello cristiano e quello umano- di due donne che vissero nell'Inghilterra quattrocentesca: Margery Kempe e Julian di Norwich.

A. Windeatt’s translation of The Book of Margery Kempe and Elizabeth Spearing’s translation of Revelations of Divine Love, it was published earlier this year. I loved spending time with the wise, compassionate Julian and the difficult, dramatic, boastful and courageous Margery through this book as through their own writings.

These two real life women are imagined with all the colour and noise that the era invokes, and along the way we learn a great deal about a woman’s lot back then.

The Jesus who appeared to Marjory Kempe told her to stop cutting her flesh as he didn’t want this from her. There are already many good reviews of this book online, but I would nevertheless love to draw your attention to this novel.

The anchorite continued to explain that a double-minded person in the soul is always unstable and unsteady in all their ways. It hits a sweet spot for me between the literary and the irresistibly readable; the kind of book that sucks you right in and delivers you back to the world with fresh perspective.Seeking the anchorite’s counsel, she disclosed these experiences to ascertain if there was any deceit in them, given the anchorite’s expertise in such matters. It brings fresh eyes and vitality to the lives of two real, medieval women of faith: Margery Kempe, and the anchoress Julian of Norwich. This is an extraordinary novel about two extraordinary women, the books they wrote and how those books survived.
