about

Aemilia Bassano Lanyer published poetry to and for women in 1611, at the height of the largely misogynistic reign of James I. Her verse complements and extends our view of her contemporaries, such as Spenser, Shakespeare, Jonson, and Donne, whose work in turn provides a context for her uniqueand engaging voice. This book situates Lanyer within the rich tradition of Jacobean poetry.

Editorial Reviews

"Woods has been a pioneer of Lanyer scholarship alongside Lewalski, and this study of Lanyer will further enliven the ongoing debate about Lanyer, the canon, and the merits of various approaches to literature, particularly literature by women. [Her] approach is thoughtful and creative, and itopens up Lanyer's poems in many ways that enrich our understanding of them. [Lanyer] must be of interest to all students of early modern literature and culture."--Journal of English and Germanic Philology
