From the Publisher"This book continues and adds greatly to the reevaluation of women dramatists' place in the early modern period. Highly recommended."
"The sophisticated argument of Marta Straznicky's Privacy, Playreading, and Women's Closet Drama, 1550-1700 rings various thought-provoking changes on the relationship of public and private as 'shifting rather than fixed points of reference' (p. 1)."
-SEL: Studies in English Literature, 1500-1900
"Straznicky successfully shows that female closet drama is important literarily, socially, and politically, and that it is not a weak imitation of performed drama."
Carol Blessing, Renaissance Quarterly
"Marta Straznicky's book is an essential read for anyone interested in the period 1550-1700, but particularly in women's history and its relationship to the act of writing. The research is impressive and the writing style eloquent, persuasive and accessible, as we are taken on a fascinating journey into the sensitivities surrounding women and writing in the period..."
