Editorial Reviews

Renaissance Quarterly
Andreini's Selected Poems, with MacNeil's fine and exhaustive introduction, and with Cook's elegant verse translation and endnotes, offers to English-speaking readers an invaluable first glance at the vast poetic activity of the talented comedia dell'arte actress, academician, and poet of the late Italian Renaissance. This book should be of interest to readers in women's writings, and to scholars in early modern literature and culture.
