My name was Martha : a Renaissance woman's autobiographical poem by Martha Moulsworth( Book )
8 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 472 libraries worldwide
The poem makes one of the most sweeping and radical claims for the right to equal education ever issued in the Renaissance. That this claim is made by a woman, and that it is made so early, serves to heighten the significance of the statement. This work stands on its own merits as a poem. Unlike a good deal of other "women's verse" from this period, Martha Moulsworth's "Memorandum" needs no apologies as a complex work of art

The Muses females are : Martha Moulsworth and other women writers of the English Renaissance ( Book )
7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 414 libraries worldwide
This volume offers diverse perspectives on the recently published "Memorandum" of Martha Moulsworth, a fascinating woman who in 1632 wrote one of the first autobiographical poems in the English language. Moulsworth's poem, which issues a startlingly early and radical call for educational equality, provides one of our best "inside views" of the life of a Renaissance woman, and the poem is also one of the few writings about widowhood written by an early modern widow. Yet the poem is also highly sophisticated as a work of art, and it has already proven its appeal to a wide variety of readers, including both beginning students and noted scholars and critics. The present book builds on the first edition of Moulsworth's poem - "My Name Was Martha": A Renaissance Woman's Autobiographical Poem (Locust Hill, 1993). The new volume offers extensive additional biographical information about Moulsworth herself, and it also presents readings of the poem as a poem and as a piece of autobiography. The book also considers such broader issues as the myth of the muses, the role of education in the Renaissance, the status of wives and widows, and the ideals and realities of early modern marriage. Moulsworth's poem emerges as an even richer work when viewed from so many different perspectives. Moulsworth, however, is hardly the only Renaissance woman writer examined in this volume. Many essayists use Moulsworth as a touchstone for discussing numerous other authors, including such figures as Roger Ascham, Anne Bradstreet, Margaret Cavendish (the Duchess of Newcastle), Lady Anne Clifford, An Collins, Queen Elizabeth I, Elizabeth Grymston, Lady Elizabeth Langham, Aemilia Lanyer, Bathsua Makin, Elizabeth Melville, Richard Mulcaster, Katherine Philips, Mary Sidney (the Countess of Pembroke), Rachel Speght, Hester Wiat, and Lady Mary Wroth (to name a few)

Habits of mind : evidence and effects of Ben Jonson's reading by Robert C Evans( Book )
8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 353 libraries worldwide
In Habits of Mind, his fourth book on Ben Jonson, Robert C. Evans turns to the reading habits of one of the best-read and most-learned of all the great English poets and discovers that the impact of Jonson's reading on his own art was both immediate and strong. Studying Jonson's markings can provide unique insights into his own thinking and creativity, Evans postulates, because the poet's reading was not a distraction, but central to his inspiration and artistic development. The marked books that Evans discusses are a deliberately mixed lot, and the methods used in discussing them are also intentionally diverse. The chosen works represent differing periods, genres, styles, and thematic concerns, thus suggesting the impressive range of Jonson's interests as well as the continuities that seem to underlie them
