The Poems and Prose of Mary, Lady Chudleigh

Portada
Oxford University Press, 1993 M09 16 - 432 páginas
The first edition of the collected poetry and prose of the Restoration feminist, Mary, Lady Chudleigh (1656-1710), this volume includes The Ladies Defence as well as her final prose meditations. New biographical and bibliographical information in the Introduction revises the existing accounts of her life and literary career. The volume makes available for the first time the complete range of Chudleigh's literary experiments and calls for a reassessment of the image of the woman writer of the Restoration. A friend of John Dryden and Mary Astell, Chudleigh experimented with a variety of literary forms, from satire to biblical paraphrase, but always maintained her belief in the importance of education for women and the necessity for self-determination.

Página 30 - Tis hard we should be by the men despised, Yet kept from knowing what would make us prized; Debarred from knowledge, banished from the schools, And with the utmost industry bred fools; Laughed out of reason, jested out of sense, And nothing left but native innocence; Then told we are incapable of wit, And only for the meanest drudgeries fit; Made slaves to serve their luxury and pride, And with innumerable hardships tried, Till pitying heaven release us from our pain, Kind heaven, to whom alone we...
