Women Poets of the Renaissance

Women Poets of the Renaissance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although women of the Renaissance were expected to be "chaste, silent and obedient," many women poets risked the disapproval of their own society and transcended the strictures of contemporary female behavior in words that still resonate today. Their meditations on the danger and sufferings of motherhood and their descriptions of the vagaries of love, while couched in the formal style of Renaissance poetry, often appear startlingly close to modern experience. As a consequence, the range of poetry produced by Renaissance women is remarkably broad. In "Women Poets of the Renaissance" the poetry of these women is collected for the first time in an anthology that offers the twentieth-century reader a fresh and unique approach to literature of the period.

Book News Annotation:

An anthology of 13 writers to balance the canonical male perspective of the period. Wynne-Davies (English, U. of Dundee) introduces the poets to modern readers, selects one to three poems each to represent their work, and annotates the texts extensively to explain contemporary allusions and word usages. The styles and topics range widely. No index. First published by J. M. Dent.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
