Overview

The discovery and reexamination of women authors has been a key part of the emergence of early modern women's studies, but a major problem has been the inaccessibility of the texts themselves. This series is designed to make available a comprehensive collection of writings in English from 1500-1700, both by women and for and about them. Each text is preceded by a short introduction providing an overview of the life and work of the writer along with a survey of important scholarship. The series will be published in two sections, covering 1500-1640 and 1641-1700, and complimented by a separate facsimile series of essential works and original monographs. This section covers the period of 1641-1700.
