The Renaissance Englishwoman in Print: Counterbalancing the Canon

Synopsis

This volume offers 18 essays on women as writers or as objects of representation in the English Renaissance. By analyzing the ways in which women are treated both in the traditional canon and in writings hitherto excluded, the book establishes a broader context for the interpretation of these writings. At the same time, the essays treat texts as cultural documents that raise questions about English politics, religion, economics and power relations. Together, the pieces reveal much about the gender system operating in Renaissance England and the range of women's experience during this period.
