Book - 1996
Rate this:
This work takes as its subject the literary writings of English women working in the 80-year period from 1560 to 1640. It aims to provide both a comprehensive introduction to the range of women's writing (in print and in manuscript) in the period and an in-depth analysis of the work of several individual writers. The book opens with a sketch of the literary production in the Renaissance, and then goes on to address the ways in which women writers were able to counter these restraints and make a place for themselves in a male-dominated literary tradition.
