The first part of this volume contains essays that explore early modern Italian women's writing by examining male-authored texts that illustrate the ideological forces at work in their period. The second part of the volume contains English translations of these male-authored texts, including those by Torquato Tasso, Giuseppe Passi, Pietro Aretino, and Bernardino Ochino amongst others.
