Women poets of the Renaissance by Marion Wynne-Davies( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this necessary and long needed anthology, Marion Wynne-Davies selects thirteen women writers to balance out the canonical male viewpoint that blankets most studies of the Renaissance. By collecting and reintroducing these women poets, a female perspective is returned, allowing a more complete assessment to be made." "The range of Renaissance women poets is remarkably broad. Their meditations on the danger and sufferings of motherhood and their descriptions of the vagaries of love, while couched in the formal style of Renaissance poetry, often appear startlingly close to modern experience. They did not confine themselves to topics considered appropriate for women."--Jacket

14 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women writers and familial discourse in the English Renaissance : relative values by Marion Wynne-Davies( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through an exploration of key women writers of the Early Modern period, Marion Wynne-Davies demonstrates the ways in which female authors were both enabled and constrained by the writing traditions and influences within their families. The engagement with and participation in the construction of individual familial discourses is explained via an analysis of six Renaissance families: the Mores, Lumleys, Sidneys/Herberts, Carys and Cavendishes. While the book addresses the writing of male authors from these family groups, such as Sir Thomas More, John Donne, Philip Sidney, Lucius Cary and William Cavendish, its primary focus is on Margaret More/Roper; Gertrude More; Jane Lumley; Mary Wroth; Elizabeth Cary; and Jane, Elizabeth and Margaret Cavendish."--Jacket
Women and Arthurian literature : seizing the sword by Marion Wynne-Davies( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full-length study to explore the roles of women in Arthurian literature, from the medieval period, through the Renaissance and Victorian ages, to contemporary fiction. Covering the key Arthurian texts, such as Chaucer's Wife of Bath's Tale, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Malory's Morte Darthur, Spenser's The Faerie Queene and Tennyson's Idylls, it also investigates the less well-known works by women, Lady Charlotte Guest's Mabinogion, Julia Margaret Cameron's illustrations to Tennyson's works and, finally, the Arthurian women writers of the twentieth century, Mary Stewart, Marion Zimmer Bradley and Jane Yolen. The relationships between men and women, the Arthurian knights and ladies, are discussed to discover whether female identity was inevitably circumscribed by the romances, or whether the writing interacted with historical conditions to produce several alternative roles. Ultimately, Marion Wynne-Davies asks whether it has ever been possible for women to write Arthurian literature and so to 'seize the sword'

Mary Wroth and Shakespeare by Paul Salzman( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last twenty five years, scholarship on Early Modern women writers has produced editions and criticisms, both on various groups and individual authors. The work on Mary Wroth has been particularly impressive at integrating her poetry, prose and drama into the canon. This in turn has led to comparative studies that link Wroth to a number of male and female writers, including of course, William Shakespeare. At the same time no single volume has attempted a comprehensive comparative analysis. This book sets out to explore the ways in which Wroth negotiated the discourses that are embedded in the Shakespearean canon in order to develop an understanding of her oeuvre based, not on influence and imitation, but on difference, originality and innovation"--
