Inhaltsangabe: Focusing on women as writers and as subjects of Renaissance nondramatic literature, the 15 original essays in this volume share the belief that hierarchically ordered male-female relations influence nearly all aspects of human and social relations, including those that are apparently not gendered at all. Some of the essays participate in the exciting process of recovering and evaluating women writers whose works are only now entering the canon of English literature, while others examine gender issues in male-authored canonical texts. The contributors to "Representing Women in Renaissance England" offer correctives to oversimplified views of women in Renaissance literature, frequently questioning received ideas about patriarchy and about women's responses to their varied positions within a society whose hierarchies were configured according to multiple considerations. In their varied approaches, these essays contribute to a fuller understanding of the representation of women - by both male and female writers - in the Renaissance. They illuminate particular texts and specific writers and call attention to recurrent themes. Perhaps more fundamentally, however, they reveal the extent to which basic gender issues are at the very heart of Renaissance literature.
