Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Stephens handles Spenser's famously intricate language with precision and uncommon insight." Choice

"The book is the best and most thorough to date to explore a trope that has recently received a good bit of attention: the feminized imaginative faculty." Theresa M. Krier, Modern Philology

"...Stephens' readings of the Cavendish/Brackley and Marvell texts are characteristically probing, once again demonstrating the exceptional critical acumen that is the hallmark of this fine study." Renaissance Quarterly

"...rich and rewarding..." Spenser Newsletter

"Waht the superficial glance misses...this book delights to reveal." Journal of English and Germanic Philology
