About this book

Approaching the writings of Mary Wroth through a fresh 21st-century lens, this volume accounts for and re-invents the literary scholarship of one of the first "canonized" women writers of the English Renaissance. Essays present different practices that emerge around "reading" Wroth, including editing, curating, and digital reproduction.

Reviews

"Every chapter here does its work in the overall collection, and the experience of reading the whole volume is breathtaking. The breadth of scholarship here and the meticulousness of individual studies drive home the truly revolutionary part that the critical reading of early modern women's writing has played in the past three decades. Re-Reading Mary Wroth invites one to think expansively about the future direction and nature of the humanities broadly conceived, and locally about formal and expressive inflections in Wroth's writings, here newly explored to startling effect. The collection is a joy to read." - Patricia Phillippy, Professor of English Literature and Creative Writing, Kingston University, London, UK

"In this comprehensive and authoritative collection of essays that combines cutting-edge scholarship with innovative creative practice, Larson, Miller, and Strycharski have provided us with the definitive work on Mary Wroth for many years to come. It is essential reading for scholars, teachers, and students of early modern women's writing." - Marion Wynne-Davies, Professor of English, University of Surrey, UK
