1st Edition

By Brenda Hosington
August 14, 2000

Despite the fame their work brought them, and despite the importance of their parents in mid-Tudor England, relatively little is known of the lives of Anne, Margaret and Jane Seymour - daughters of Anne Stanhope and the Duke of Somerset. In 1550, aged roughly eighteen, sixteen and nine, these three...

1st Edition

By Mary Ellen Lamb
October 23, 2001

The works by the four protestant women authors collected in this volume participate in the ars moriandi (art of dying) tradition which became increasingly powerful over the 16th and 17th centuries. The moment of death was thought to reveal the ’true’ state of the individual’s soul. This volume ...

1st Edition

By Lee Cullen Khanna
August 28, 2001

This volume presents the texts of three Englishwomen remarkable both for writing and publishing their work during the first half of the sixteenth century.

1st Edition

By Teresa Feroli
July 19, 2000

Little is known of the upbringing of Lady Eleanor Davies, what is known is that her life was mired in both flamboyant personal conflict and in the notoriety of the Castlehaven scandal (resulting in the execution of her brother), and that her writings were embroiled in political affairs. Married in...

1st Edition

By Dorothy L. Latz
July 05, 2000

Few facts are known about Catholic recusant Jane Owen. The title page of this, her only work, tells us that in 1634 when this volume was published at St Omer, she was already deceased. However, she was necessarily still living after 1617 when the treatise of Bellarmine, which she here partially ...

1st Edition

Edited By Betty S. Travitsky
October 24, 2001

Early modern works of advice can be typified by a number of texts by Erasmus falling into a variety of categories: advice on family conduct; manners; study plans and piety. A close relation to these works of advice was the parental advice book, usually written by a father to his son. It was not ...

Recusant translators: Elizabeth Cary and Alexia Grey: Printed Writings 1500–1640: Series I, Part Two, Volume 13

1st Edition

By Frances E. Dolan
July 21, 2000

At a time when England was an officially Protestant country to translate Catholic works, thereby helping to propagate the faith, was a brave act and to actually identify oneself in print, as did Cary, as ’a Catholique, and a woman’ was a risky assertion of political opposition. One of Cary’s ...

The Poets, II: Mary Fage Printed Writings 1500–1640: Series I, Part Two, Volume 11
