Attending to a broad range of writing by Protestant men and women, including John Donne, Mary Sidney, John Milton, Rachel Speght, and Aemilia Lanyer, the author investigates how the cultural requirement for feminine silence informs early modern readins of biblical women's stories, and furthermore, how these biblical characters were used to counteract cultural constraints on women's speech. --From publisher's description
