"This is the first-ever critical edition, with translation, of an unusually interesting 16th-century secular drama. [Virginia] Cox and [Lisa] Sampson provide all that the reader encountering this long-neglected work could reasonably ask for: a reliable text, an accurate (though not literal) and readable translation, informative annotation, and a comprehensive, thought-provoking introduction. In that introduction, the editors set author and work in their historical and cultural context and conduct a sustained analysis of the play's structure and themes that highlights the extent to which awareness of gender issues can contribute to a satisfactory reading of Campiglia's work. The result is an important addition to the steadily growing canon of early modern women's writing, a volume that will also appeal to all readers and scholars of 16th-century drama and the pastoral tradition"--S. Botterill"Choice" (03/28/2005)
