Women s Writing and the Circulation of Ideas by George L. Justice Book PDF Summary

It was widely believed that women in Renaissance and early modern England either did not write, or did not publish their work. It has become clear that instead of using the emerging technology of print, many women writers circulated their works by hand, with friends copying and recopying poems, plays and novels from each other or with the help of professional scribes. Through manuscript publication, women's writing reached wide audiences and was collected and admired by both men and women. Women's Writing and the Circulation of Ideas contributes to the discovery and re-evaluation of women writers by examining the writing and manuscript publication of key authors from 1550 to 1800. The collection's analysis of the range and meaning of women's writing and manuscript publication during the rise of the print industry alters our understanding of the history of the book and early modern British literature alike.
