Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Woods has given us a balanced, informative, and above all usable edition, one that deserves the wide audience at which it is aimed."—ANQ

"A beautiful edition of an extraordinary collection of woman-centered poems from the Renaissance. I wish I'd known of them 30 years ago in graduate school!"—Toni A.H. McNaron, University of Minnesota

"Woods's deeply knowledgeable and sensitive editing brings the powerfully revisionary poetry of Aemilia Lanyer to us in an authoritative edition. This is a feminist collaboration, across the centuries, of the highest order."—Janel Mueller, University of Chicago

"It's wonderful to have Lanyer in a decent paperback edition. Like the Chudleigh volume, it's a great contribution to Renaissance classes."—Byron Nelson, West Virginia University

"Will be most helpful for my students."—Anthony Low, New York University
