'...a useful volume of essays...All academic collections.' Choice '... this collection marks the growth and increasing sophistication of early modern women's studies, and is thus a welcome addition to the field.' Sixteenth Century Journal 'This collection is well thought out and the essays will provide springboards for further research within this field.' Modern Language Review '... the essays are well researched and presented, ushering in more sophisticated theoretical explorations of the subjects and their poetry than has sometimes been attempted in early works on women from the era... Many of the contributors make unique observations on the women's writing, drawing together texts and contexts in original ways... a useful addition to Renaissance and seventeenth-century literary and women's studies collections.'
