This volume repositions women writers of the Renaissance by presenting their poems in the context of their history and culture. The strong and original voices of these three women----Isabella Whitney, Mary Sidney, and Aemilia Lanyer--demonstrate the emergence of a new female identity during the Renaissance and broaden the common notions of English Literature's golden age.
