This collection of new essays is a comprehensive exploration of the theoretical and practical issues surrounding the editing of texts by early modern women. The chapters consider the latest developments in the field and address a wide range of topics, including the 'ideologies' of editing, genre and gender, feminism, editing for student or general readers, print publishing, and new and possible future developments in editing early modern writing, including digital publishing. The works of writers such as Queen Elizabeth I, Mary Wroth, Anne Halkett, Katherine Philips and Katherine Austen are examined, and the issues discussed are related to the ways editing in general has evolved in recent years. This book offers readers an original overview of the central issues in this growing field and will interest students and scholars of early modern literature and drama, textual studies, the history of editing, gender studies and book history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... this collection is timely and important, filling a crucial gap in assessing the editorial strategies, unique and shared, assumed and explicit, used in making women's texts available for teaching and scholarly use.' Laura Knoppers, University of Notre Dame, Indiana
'... a refreshingly current and theoretically urgent intervention into studies of early modern women's writing. ... Editing Early Modern Women, in sum, is a revelation; a fascinating encounter with the subject that glances backward to the early modern period and reaches forward to the horizon of twenty-first-century practice. ... This generous, intelligent, engaging, and eye-opening volume is a gift to anyone who intends to read, study, or teach early modern women's writing.' Patricia Phillippy, Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal
'This important volume will be essential reading for scholars and students interested in editing and gender, in the early modern period and beyond.' Gillian Wright, Renaissance Quarterly
