Kissing the Rod: An Anthology of Seventeenth-Century Women's Verse.
Described as an epic scholarly work, this book dives back into a time when women, if they could read, probably could not write, and finds the rebels who struggled to write and be published. In the age of Donne and Milton, there were such women. Biographical commentary accompanies the samples from the era. 477 pgs. The Noonday Press. NY. 1988. Paper. USED. $5.00
