Women, Politics, and Literary Production in Early Modern England

Julie Crawford

  • Offers a new understanding of 'early modern women' as central co-producers of literature rather than minoritized bit players
  • Provides a new angle on well-studied texts like Sidney's Arcadia and Donne's poetry by showing how the texts' women patrons and readers were crucial co-producers
  • Includes new readings of much-studied texts including the Arcadia, the Urania, and the Hoby Diary
  • Shows the importance of place to literary production
  • Offers an extraordinarily well-documented account of the relationship between literary production and political activism
