Overview

Volume eight is one of a growing number of Ashgate additions to the Early Modern Englishwoman project which is published in three series (1500-1640, 1641-1700, 1701-1750). This volume contains works by Elizabeth Richardson, Susanna Bell, and anonymous as well as excerpts from Mary Pennyman and Elizabeth Walker. Mother's advice to their children, given in public (including published print), was frowned upon at this time so female authors often wrote they were sick, even fatally, and that soon advice could not be imparted at all. Richardson advises her daughters with aid of scripture, Bell delivers her didactic life story, and anonymous is unique in using verse to instruct her children from her deathbed. Following the brief introduction, all pages feature texts in facsimile. No index or bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
