Reviews

"... an edition of major bibliographical significance to all editors of Renaissance printed texts ... this edition underlines the significance of Wroth's depiction in the Urania of women and their social roles."
— The Review of English Studies

,

"[This edition] is enough to situate Wroth among the major writers of the earlier seventeenth century, and her editor among those who have most contributed to the vitality of Renaissance studies."
