Redeeming Eve Summary

Redeeming Eve: Women Writers of the English Renaissance by Elaine V. Beilin

An introduction to women writers of the English Renaissance which takes up 44 works, many as thumbnail sketches; shows how women's writing was hampered by the assumption that poets were male, by restriction to pious subject matter, by the doctrine that only silent women are virtuous, by criticism that praised women as patrons or muses and ignored their writing, and above all by crippling educational theories.

Originally published in 1987.

The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Redeeming Eve Reviews

Redeeming Eve is an introduction to women writers of the English Renaissance which takes up 44 works, many as thumbnail sketches. . . . [Beilin] shows how women's writing was hampered by the assumption that poets were male, by restriction to pious subject matter, by the doctrine that only silent women are virtuous, by criticism that praised women as patrons or muses and ignored their writing, and above all by crippling educational theories. . . . The interesting chapters on Anne Askew, Elizabeth Cary, Aemilia Lanyer, and Mary Wroth are alone well worth the purchase price.---Linda Woodbridge, Renaissance Quarterly
[Beilin] engages the writings of Renaissance women with an understanding and appreciation that render them at once more accessible and more significant. [Her] approach is literary, tactful, and sensitive to tonal and psychic nuance.---Judith H. Anderson, Recent Studies in the English Renaissance
[Beilin's] approach is wise and fruitful, shunning a radical, imperialistic feminist criticism that would seek to make these Renaissance women feminists. . . . [The book] serves the purpose of an excellent introduction to a lively topic. * Virginia Quarterly Review *
