This volume focuses on women's literary history in Britain between 700 and 1500. It brings to the fore a wide range of women's literary activity undertaken in Latin, Welsh and Anglo-Norman alongside that of the English vernacular, demanding a rethinking of the traditions of literary history, and ultimately the concept of 'writing' itself.

Review

'This collection is a noteworthy addition to the bibliography on women's contributions to medieval literature...McAvoy and Watt are to be commended for compiling an outstanding collaborative history of women's writings, as well as a significant history of medieval literature. It will be profitably read by anyone interested in medieval literature or women's writing. With its assessments of prior and current scholarship and its generous notes and bibliography, it offers a thorough overview of the field for graduate students, and its informative, well-written, and original essays make it recommended reading for anyone studying women's writing.' - Monica Brzezinski Potkay, The Review of English Studies
