... impressive ... fascinating work ... ground-breaking collection. This rich and original book will change the landscape of early modern women's writing. Notes and Queries The biographies are a constant delight: full of information on the importance of the writer, often containing new research on better-known poets, and always written in an engaging manner. Notes and Queries The first anthology of women's poetry in this period to give a prominent place to dozens of poets writing in languages other than English in the British Isles: Irish, Scots Gaelic, Lowland Scots, Welsh, French, Latin and Greek. Notes and Queries The editors of this anthology of early modern women's poetry have achieved a remarkable feat: they have provided examples of the work of nearly two hundred female poets, forever putting to rest the claim that not many women in this period wrote poetry. Notes and Queries ... This impressive anthology should quickly become a staple in the women's literature and Renaissance literature classrooms. Sixteenth Century Journal Stevenson and Davidson's new anthology of 187 women poets (half of whom appear in print and are collected for the first time) may be the volume that best demonstrates the range of women's poetic production and the teaching value of providing historical, biographical, and critical headnotes on each poet. These features reveal provocative issues that early modern poetry classes - women-focused or not - will want to explore ... the impressive range of poets, genres, and subjects included challenges readers to question historical assumptions about the terms "poet" and "English poetry".
