Early Modern Women Poets (1520-1700): An Anthology

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 2001 - Literary Criticism - 585 pages
This is a complete reexamination of early modern women's verse based on primary research in many archives and libraries. Forty per cent of the material included has never been printed before, but the book also includes lavish selections from the early modern women poets currently studied, such as Aphra Behn. It offers a very thorough, and very complete, conspectus of women's verse production at all social levels, from 1520 to 1700.
