Product Description


This study reveals the complex legal and economic workings of sixteenth-century culture and the representation of women in the literature of this period. It focuses on the importance of the humanist redefiniton of male friendship terms of textuality. Covering a wide range of classical and continental as well as English texts, the book reveals the importance of women's representation to the project of sixteenth-century humanism.
Cahiers Elizabethains

This is an immensely erudite and far-ranging book . . . it will undoubtedly find eager audiences among new historicists, historians of early modern culture, and literary critics and scholars.
–Elizabeth Harvey, University of Western Ontario
