Persona non grata, Cavendish nonetheless managed to make her voice heard.

   schema:description ""Emma Rees examines how Cavendish engaged with the work of thinkers such as Lucretius, Plato, Homer and Harvey in an attempt to write her way out of the exile which threatened not only her intellectual pursuits but her very existence. What emerges is the image of an intelligent, audacious and intrepid early-modern woman whose tale will appeal to specialists and general readers alike."--Jacket."@en ;
