Marion Wynne-Davies. The English Renaissance produced some of the most lyrical, sensitive, & powerful poetry in the language. Spenser, Donne, & Shakespeare all fall within this fertile period. But what of women writers? This anthology includes 13 women writers to balance out the male viewpoint. Renaissance women poets meditations on the danger & sufferings of motherhood & their descriptions of the vagaries of love, while couched in the formal style of Renaissance poetry, often appear close to modern experience. They did not confine themselves to topics considered appropriate for women. Includes: Elizabeth I, Diana Primrose, Aemilia Lanyer, Mary Worth, Mary Sidney, & Anne Bradstreet. “Provides a fresh & unique approach to Renaissance literature.”
