    Elegantly written and informed by a rich historical understanding, this encyclopaedic survey draws on three decades of research to uncover the lives and work of many forgotten women writers alongside acknowledged figures such as Aphra Behn and Mary Wollstonecraft. Setting aside anachronistic notions of the centrality of the novel, it brings to light many significant works of non-fiction, religious writing and translation.
