Rhetorically analyzing their verse within a gender-inclusive context, Women Writing of Divinest Things broadens our understanding of Renaissance women's poetry in literary history. Scholars have long recognized that the culture of early modern England was deeply informed by rhetorical habits of speech and thought, yet until now there has been no full-length study of the role rhetoric played in poetry by women of the period. Women Writing of Divinest Things addresses this gap.

LYN BENNETT is an assistant professor in the Department of English at Dalhousie University, where she teaches classes on rhetoric, writing, and early modern Literary Studies. She has published numerous articles and book chapters on topics rhetorical and literary, from the discourse of interdisciplinarity to the critical reception of Edith Wharton.
