From the Publisher
"Meticulous but accessible, this is for the scholar or serious lay reader."
"Kemp has produced a fascinating volume for the "Age of Shakespeare" series. . . . Though Kemp's discussions may seem truncated, idiosyncratic, and impressionistic, herein lies the book's greatest strength: she jam-packs the volume with interesting facts and thought-provoking ideas ideally suited to group discussion. The absence of glib study-guide interpretations and quickie plot summaries makes this book more road map than shortcut, the beginning of countless interesting conversations rather than the final word. This book deserves a wide readership. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates, faculty, general readers."
"This latest addition to Greenwood Press's The Age of Shakespeare series is an excellent resource for undergraduates showing an interest in women's studies and early modern English literature and culture. . . . Given the thoroughness of this book's scholarship and Kemp's previous publications related to pedagogy, her contribution to this series stands testament to how seriously most of us involved in scholarly research take our teaching responsibilities."
