This collection of sixteen essays considers evidence for the array of women's alliances in early modern England. The inclusions range over a variety of communities-cities, households, and court-and consider classes of women from vagabonds to queens to explore the traces of women's connections. These clear and lively interdisciplinary essays, combining literary and historical methods and materials, are informed by feminism, queer theory, and studies of race in the early modern period.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Occasionally one comes across a well-written and carefully argued interpretation of Shakespeare's drama that prompts a major reconsideration of the evidence. Jessica Tvordi's 'Female Alliance and the Construction of Homoeroticism in As You Like It and Twelfth Night' in Frye and Robertson, eds., Maids and Mistresses is one such article ... this essay remains a must-read for anyone interested in the circulation of sexual desire in Shakespeare's comedies. * Years Work in English Studies *
An exciting edition to the burgeoning field of collection of essays in this area. * Years Work in English Studies *
This book represents a valuable collection of studies on early modern women's collectives both real and imagined. * Sixteenth Century Journal *
