Eliot, specially-commissioned new essays by some of today's important feminist critics, a preface and introduction explaining this selection and contexts of the materials, a bibliography of secondary sources. Playwrights covered include Joanna Lumley, Elizabeth Cary, Mary Sidney, Mary Wroth and the Cavendish sisters
