Firing the Canon: Early Modern Women's Writing

ENGL 1360W S01 [CRN: 24411]

What did women write during the centuries before Jane Austen? Virginia Woolf mused over Shakespeare's imaginary sister Judith. Fortunately for us, many real women produced texts that have been rediscovered and reprinted. They provide the subject matter for this course. Readings include drama, fiction, poetry, diaries and letters, prophecies, and essays by writers including Lanyer, Wroth, Cavendish, Behn, Haywood, and Montagu. Enrollment limited to 20.
