"... a nuanced, carefully argued work that reveals how women writers of the Renaissance, whether upper-class aristocrats close to court, daughters of successful merchants, Protestants, or Catholics, are inevitably affected by the gender biases that infuse all levels of Renaissance society and letters." -- Sixteenth Century Journal

"... quite effective at developing a critical vocabulary for analyzing the formal traits of early modern women's writing." -- Tulsa Studies in Women's Literature

From the perspectives of feminism, Marxism, sociology, and cultural semiotics, Louise Schleiner examines both familiar and obscure Tudor and Stuart women writers in a comprehensive study of those women who managed to go beyond translations or diaries and find a more individual voice in their public texts.

Strana 171 - Shee in whom vertue was so much refin'd, That for Allay unto so pure a minde Shee tooke the weaker Sex...
Strana 237 - God's word, which he denies, That they should die, but even as Gods, be wise. But surely Adam cannot be excused, Her fault though great, yet he was most to blame...
Strana 67 - UNTO the boundless ocean of thy beauty Runs this poor river, charged with streams of zeal, Returning thee the tribute of my duty, Which here my love, my youth, my plaints reveal. Here I unclasp the book of my charged soul, Where I have cast th' accounts of all my care ; Here have I summed my sighs.
Strana 66 - Lovely kind, and kindly loving, Such a mind were worth the moving; Truly fair, and fairly true, Where are all these but in you? Wisely kind, and kindly wise — Blessed life, where such love lies! Wise, and kind, and fair, and true, Lovely live all these in you.
Strana 237 - Our mother Eve, who tasted of the tree, Giving to Adam what she held most dear, Was simply good, and had no power to see, The after-coming harm did not appear: The subde Serpent that our sex betrayed, Before our fall so sure a plot had laid. That undiscerning ignorance perceived No guile, or craft that was by him intended; For had she known, of what we were bereaved, To his request she had not condescended.
Strana 15 - I mean a set of discursive and inter-textual determinations which organise and animate the practice of reading, connecting texts and readers in specific relations to one another in constituting readers as reading subjects of particular types and texts as objects-to-be-read in particular ways.
Strana 21 - She reads Greenes works over and over, but is so carried away with the Mirror of Knighthood, she is many times resolv'd to runne out of her selfe, and become a lady errant.
