Victoria MacKenzie’s debut novel, For Thy Great Pain Have Mercy On My Little Pain, circles Margery Kempe and Julian of Norwich, two extraordinary medieval women who experienced religious visions and were determined to preserve their own stories. Their fictional contemporary is Chaucer’s bawdy pilgrim, The Wife of Bath, now the fascinating subject of Chaucer expert Marion Turner’s lifelong study. Hear how these stories have endured for over 600 years. Chaired by Kirsty Logan.
