Woman and the Feminine in Medieval and Early Modern Scottish Writing
Edited by Sarah M. Dunnigan, C. Marie Harker, and Evelyn S. Newlyn (College at Brockport alumna, BA 1971, MA 1974, and former faculty member).
Includes a chapter by Evelyn S. Newlyn: A methodology for reading against the culture: anonymous, women poets, and the Maitland Quarto manuscript (c. 1586).
This collection of essays provides the first comprehensive critical study of women as subjects and creators of medieval and early modern Scottish writing between the early fifteenth and late seventeenth centuries. Essays examine canonical and non-canonical literary, historiographical, and religious texts written in the Scots, Gaelic, and English languages. Challenging the received literary and cultural history of medieval and early modern Scotland, this volume brings to texts and writers, both established and newly discovered, a range of new theoretical approaches.
