The contributors investigate the influence of the queen's court on women's cultural expression, and offer new readings of early modern women's poetry and drama, Stuart court theatricals and women's patronage and commissioning. Revitalised through innovative studies of the women of the European courts, these essays write a new chapter in early modern cultural history for scholars and students alike."--Jacket.
