Sixteenth Century Essays & Studies, vol. 23
These essays focus on gender issues in early modern as expressed in texts written by and about women. Among the issues considered are the boundaries between private and public life, the problem of separating the female author’s life from her writing, the charting of the intellectual life women writers, and the differences between masculine and feminine approaches to similar subjects.
Scholars of gender studies will relish this collection; and, historians and literature students of early modern Europe should.
