Focusing on the unusual learning and schooling of women in early modern England, this study explores how and why women wrote, the myriad forms their alphabets could assume, and the shape which vernacular literacy acquired in their hands. Elizabeth Mazzola argues that early modern women's writings often challenged the lessons of their male teachers, since they were designed to conceal rather than reveal women's learning and schooling. Employed by early modern women with great learning and much art, such difficult or ’resistant’ literacy organized households and administrative offices alike, and transformed the broader history of literacy in the West. Chapters treat writers like Jane Sharp, Anne Southwell, Jane Seager, Martha Moulsworth, Elizabeth Tudor, and Katherine Parr alongside images of women writers presented by Shakespeare and Sidney. Managing women's literacy also concerned early modern statesmen and secretaries, writing masters and grammarians, and Mazzola analyzes how both the emerging vernacular and a developing bureaucratic state were informed by these contests over women's hands.

Review:

Elizabeth Mazzola's Learning and Literacy in Female Hands, 1520-1698 is a rich, compelling, wide-ranging study that illuminates the intricate and shifting complexity of early modern women's literacy. It treats men's and women's texts alongside each other to highlight gendered differences in modes of reading and writing, and it admirably insists upon recognizing the multiplicity of literacies at stake during this transformative period.-Pamela Hammons, University of Miami, USA Author, Gender, Sexuality, and Material Objects in English Renaissance Verse

About the Author:

Elizabeth Mazzola is Professor of English at The City College of New York, CUNY. Among her three previous books is Women's Wealth and Women's Writing.
