Cotterill turns feminist sensitivity toward silenced voices to look afresh at major nondramatic texts by Donne, Marvell, Browne, Milton, and Dryden.

Review quote

"Cotterill has written a splendid book that reflects her engagement with the seventeenth century across the Resoration divide. Her formal sensitivity to both language and rhetoric and her deft positioning of the individual texts within the trajectory of their writers' careers make each chapter memorable." -- Modern Philology"This welcome book deftly dismantles period divisions and offers a new angle on the relation between poetry, literary writing, and politics. Cotterill emphasizes the pleasures and intricacies of the literary text in her compelling readings."--Studies in English Literature 1500-1900
