Description
Readings in Renaissance Women's Drama is the most complete sourcebook for the study of this growing area of inquiry. It brings together, for the first time, a collection of the key critical commentaries and historical essays - both classic and contemporary - on Renaissance women's drama. Specifically designed to provide a comprehensive overview for students, teachers and scholars, this collection combines: This century's key critical essays on drama by early modern women by early critics such as Virginia Woolf and T.S. Eliot, specially-commissioned new essays by some of today's important feminist critics, a preface and introduction explaining this selection and contexts of the materials, a bibliography of secondary sources. Playwrights covered include Joanna Lumley, Elizabeth Cary, Mary Sidney, Mary Wroth and the Cavendish sisters
