'Renaissance Drama by Women will ... have an immediate and profound effect on the teaching of Renaissance drama. If ease of access, clarity of presentation, and interest of material are what is needed, the editors are likely to meet their goal of introducing Renaissance theatre by women into the canon of English drama.' - Shakespeare Quarterly
'This reasonably priced volume will make Renaissance women's writing generally available to students ... with its attractive presentation of texts and notes, [it] is ... to be welcomed for its recognition of a gap in Renaissance cultural history.' - Review of English Studies
'An affordable, attractively presented collection of texts ... will be seized on with delight...' - New Theatre Quarterly
'Few teachers of Renaissance literature will be able to resist the temptation to buy it ...' - Times Literary Supplement
