Women, Writing, History 1640-1740.
Several essays by scholars from North America and Britain on women writers from the time period. Women writers had to balance their dependence on men for acceptance as they engaged in the scandalous activity of writing. How these women navigated their responses to the rise of humanist thought that excluded them is explored as well as other ways they either accepted or rebelled against the restraints imposed on them by their society.
