On that women wrote nothing of serious interest until much later Mistress and friend of influential Elizabethan courtiers Lanyer gives us a glimpse of the ideas and aspirations of a talented middle class Renaissance woman. It s not very good poetry but it s a pardon ballsy piece of rhetoric It basically does what most early proto feminist texts do which is speak from a stereotypically feminine position but reclaim that as a position of power In this Lanyer argues against the doctrine of original sin and even goes as far as saying that if anyone should take the blame it s Adam that hedonist male moron because Eve s just a poor old woman behaving femininely and was duped by that cunning male figure Satan then just lovingly offered this delicious treat to her husband Plus if she came from him isn t any evil in her really his fault And other stuff It s a neat little rhetorical strategy though it s not exactly feminist in the contemporary sense because she s still playing the role of innocent and naive woman who only knows a few core values which she then endows Christ with which is cool That part is the most interesting bit Other than that there s a lot of boring poetry praising the lord and the like

The Poems of Aemilia Lanyer Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum Women Writers in English 1350 1850

Aemilia Lanyer 1569 1645 was the first woman poet in England who sought status as a professional writer Her book of poems is dedicated entirely to women patrons It offers a long poem on Christ's passion told entirely from. This is a well edited critical edition of Lanyer s volume Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum Woods gives excellent critical and textual introductions and has edited the text well with helpful notes for students The Salve Deus itself is a chaotic volume speaking through multiple voices and moods and the dedicatory letters which preface it are as much a part of the text as the poetry itselfLanyer tends to be read as a straightforwardly proto feminist poet particularly in her defence of Eve but recent scholarship has exposed some of the slippages which seep through her To The Vertuous Reader letter with its intimations of female rivalry for example and the extent to which she s soliciting patronage rather than or as well as creating space for herself as a female poetThis isn t a cheap volume so casual readers wanting to try Lanyer might be better off with a popular volume such as Renaissance Women Poets Isabella Whitney Mary Sidney and Aemilia Lanyer which makes some cuts but still offers a full selection from Salve Deus

Aemilia Lanyer Ú 6 characters

A woman's point of view as well as the first country house poem published in England Almost completely neglected until very recently her work changes our perspective on Jacobean poetry and contradicts the common assumpti. Religion has never been my thing but I can appreciate the way that religious discourses provide this rich text on which writers draw Lanyer gives some really powerful passages here reflecting not only how she locates women at the centre of her worldview but also a woman s perspective on the relationship between God and humankind uite the achievement

    Published in 1611 and in writing about the betrayal of Christ and the flight of the disciples –For they were of earth and he came from aboveWhich made them apt to flie and fit to fallThough they do protest they never will forsake himThey do like men when dangers overtake them– and no man would ever have wr

    Four stars for the poetry 15 for the essay by RowseThe poetry itself was sometimes radical and repetitive with both simple and complex imagery stunningly beautiful in places harsh and bitter in others The wealth of dedications is rather off putting and I came to think of it as a reminder to misogynist male readers that there are many many virtuous women who are far better than them Eve's Apology is a fascinating approach to original sin an

    This is a must read for Early Modern literature enthusiasts Lanyer the author is very much a product of her time She flatters her patrons and everything she wants to call good is fair It's hard to imagine a poet today rewriting a biblical story in epic poetry form But Lanyer also stands out from her time because she is one of very few women writers of the time Her poems reflect her concerns as a woman Her patrons are all women

    I'm still hung up on Donne and it is truly RUINING all subseuently read poets Aemilia Lanyer is probably than likely even a great read that gives you some intersections between culture and gender in 1611 and lets you in on the female patronage model and how its dedicatory arts or encomia if we want to look at it that way complicate any kind
