Abstract

This essay surveys recent scholarship on Tudor women writers. Although Tudor women have long been overlooked, they are finally engaging the critical energies of a significant number of scholars. The scholarship in this field is developing in four major directions. First, scholars are publishing works by Tudor women in scholarly, facsimile, paperback, and electronic editions, making many formerly obscure texts readily available to scholars and students. Second, scholars working on individual women are bringing new writers to light and are expanding our understanding of the number of women who were active participants in the literary and cultural life of Tudor England. Third, scholars are engaging in projects that position women writers alongside their male counterparts and are incorporating women's texts into larger literary and historical narratives. And finally, scholars are raising theoretical, methodological, and pedagogical questions about the techniques we use to recover women writers and about the most effective ways of introducing them into our undergraduate and graduate courses. While much still remains to be learned about Tudor women's writing, this new scholarship bespeaks a dynamic field of study.
