About this book

Rethinking the history of women's writing and literary history itself, this new volume examines the diversity of early women's writing (from verse and songs to household records and recipes), offering a new paradigm for understanding women's shaping roles in the literary, religious, and political movements of the sixteenth century.

Reviews

Winner of the 2011 Society for the Study of Early Modern Women Collaborative Project Award

'This is a landmark volume, and one which will give new direction to the study of early modern women and the multiple ways in which they were active participants in the literary culture of the sixteenth century.' - Margaret Ezell, Distinguished Professor of English, Texas A&M University, USA

'This highly stimulating set of essays is the second in a series of volumes charting the history of British women's writing...This volume of essays takes the diversity of female reading and writing practices as its starting point. It also builds on very recent interest in women's productive participation in literary networks and in cultural communities of various sorts, as well as developing the growing literature on the valences of early modern spaces...The authors of these essays have mobilized this and other currents of early modern scholarship to fashion an effective, revisionary historiography. Using this framework, the essays succeed admirably in making timely and productive connections between women's writing and the multifarious spaces and discourses that women inhabited in early modern Britain...In sum, this collection offers a richly detailed and nuanced, fresh topography of

women's writing of this era that is astute in scholarship and attuned to the latest developments in the field.' - Femke Molekamp, Renaissance Quarterly
