Politics of Early Modern Women's Writing

Danielle Clarke

Editura: Longman
This title challenges the conventional view of Renaissance women as marginal to the cultural reproduction of the time. It examines texts written by women in relation to their social and historical contexts and looks at how women's lived experiences shaped their work.
