Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"An exceptional collection of essays on the various and rich connections between women in early modern England. The breadth of interdisciplinary approach is especially impressive and lively."--Dan O'Bryan, Sierra Nevada College

"This book covers an extremely important topic, and early modern historians of women undoubtedly will read this book. They, as well as other scholars outside the field of literary criticism, will find the essays insightful and thanfully free of jargon. This book will provide its readers from all disciplines with ideas which will prove useful in their own work. It should also be helpful in stimulating discussions in upper level undergraduate as well as graduate courses." --Margaret Keenan, Tulane University, in H-NET

"This collection of essays will prove useful to scholars interested in interactions among English women between 1450 and 1700."--Virginia Quarterly Review
