World-Making Renaissance Women: Rethinking Early Modern Women’s Place in Literature and Culture

The sixteen women discussed in this collection were world-makers whose craft influenced cultural practice so incisively that their shaping authority can be traced far beyond their moment. For scholars and students of English literature, this volume shows why Renaissance culture cannot be rightly understood when women writers are ignored.
