Aemilia Lanyer (1569-1645) was the first woman poet in England who sought status as a professional writer. Her book of poems is dedicated entirely to women patrons. It offers a long poem on Christ's passion, told entirely from a woman's point of view, as well as the first country house poem published in England. Almost completely neglected until very recently, her work changes our perspective on Jacobean poetry and contradicts the common assumption that women wrote nothing of serious interest until much later. Mistress and friend of influential Elizabethan courtiers, Lanyer gives us a glimpse of the ideas and aspirations of a talented middle class Renaissance woman.

Gender, Genre, and the Canon

Aemilia Lanyer was a Londoner of Jewish-Italian descent and the mistress of Queen Elizabeth's Lord Chamberlain. But in 1611 she did something extraordinary for a middle-class woman of the seventeenth century: she published a volume of original poems. Using standard genres to address distinctly feminine concerns, Lanyer's work is varied, subtle, provocative, and witty. Her religious poem "Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum" repeatedly projects a female subject for a female reader and casts the Passion in terms of gender conflict. Lanyer also carried this concern with gender into the very structure of the poem; whereas a work of praise usually held up the superiority of its patrons, the good women in Lanyer's poem exemplify worth women in general. The essays in this volume establish the facts of Lanyer's life and use her poetry to interrogate that of her male contemporaries, Donne, Jonson, and Shakespeare. Lanyer's work sheds light on views of gender and class identities in early modern society. By using Lanyer to look at the larger issues of women writers working within a patriarchal system, the authors go beyond the explication of Lanyer's writing to address the dynamics of canonization and the construction of literary history.

Anne Lock, Isabella Whitney and Aemilia Lanyer have emerged as important literary figures in the past ten years and scholars have increasingly realized that their bold and often unorthodox works challenge previously-held conceptions about women's engagement with early modern secular and religious literary culture. This volume collects some of the most influential and innovative essays that elucidate these women's works from a wide range of feminist, literary, aesthetic, economic, racial, sexual and theological perspectives. The volume is prefaced by an extended editorial overview of scholarship in the field.

Nach ihrem gefeierten Roman »Spiel der Königin« hat Elizabeth Fremantle einen neuen spannenden Roman über Intrigen und Bedrohung am Englischen Hof geschrieben. Wir schreiben das Jahr 1554: Edward VI. stirbt überraschend jung und bestimmt die sechzehnjährige Jane Grey zur Königin, er bestimmt die Änderung der Erbfolge, um Mary als Königin zu verhindern. Doch Janes Regentschaft dauert nicht einmal zwei Wochen, da hat Mary die unerfahrene Jane entmachtet und enthaupten lassen. Doch was geschieht mit Janes jüngeren Schwestern Katherine und Mary? Dass königliches Blut in ihren Adern fließt, wird ihnen zum Fluch, denn die kinderlose Queen Mary fühlt sich schon allein durch ihre Existenz bedroht. Elizabeth Fremantle lässt auch in ihrem zweiten Roman die wechselvolle Tudorzeit überraschend lebendig werden.
