"We still have much to learn about the lives of women and the attitudes toward them in early modern England. Susan O'Malley's six texts make a valuable contribution to such a project and her careful editing and generous notations guide us in recovering an essential part of the culture." -Arthur F. Kinney, President, Renaissance English Text Society
