A CRITIQUE ON: THE RENAISSANCE ENGLISHWOMAN IN PRINT: COUNTERBALANCING THE CANON.

DIMITRAKOPOULOU, G.
Abstract:
Although the book: The Renaissance Englishwoman in Print. Counterbalancing the canon. Haselkorn and Travitsky, eds., University of Massachusetts Press, 31 January 1990, appeared/was published in the 90’s through its seventeen (17) essays on women as writers or/and as objects of representation in the English Renaissance, it presents and analyses the ways women were treated in the traditional canon and in the writings - interpretation(s) of these writings. The book is divided in five (5) parts (the outspoken woman, woman on the Renaissance stage, the woman ruler, the private woman, and women and the Sidneian tradition), that elaborate on issues such as: women’s voices, portrayals of female empowerment, suppression and resistance in Renaissance drama, the woman ruler, (her authority and her limitations), and the repression of women in the private sphere. The last part of the book addresses the voices and silences of women in texts by male and female writers of the Sidney family. The final chapter comprises an annotated bibliography which covers women writers from 1500 to 1640. The included essays treat texts as cultural documents that raise questions about English politics, religion, economic and power relations. They also reveal much about the gender system which existed/operating in Renaissance England and women’s experience during that era. The book explores the interrelated subject of women’s visibility/invisibility, empowerment/suppression, and voice/silencing. It also documents the efforts of individual women who engaged, not necessarily consciously, in the creation and recreation of a female cultural presence and discusses the differences and similarities between male and female representations of women’s experience. Overall, in this monograph, the presentation of female identity and the role of the woman ruler are highlighted. In all essays, a thorough picture of women’s position, social context and female destiny of the Renaissance era is given, enabling the reader to get a clear view of women’s status in the Tudor and Stuart England.
