Description

For those readers unacquainted with sixteenth century English prose the text remains difficult to read, but it repays the effort. ...this will prove very useful for seminar studies in Tudor Reformation history as a basic as well as unusually gripping text.

Auteur

Elaine V. Beilin is Associate Professor of English at Framingham State College.



Texte du rabat

This volume includes two texts: the first edition of Askew's Examinations with Bale's Elucidation; and Foxe's edition, an uninterrupted version of her work. The latest addition to the Women Writers in English series, this book will have strong appeal for scholars and students of English Renaissance literature, Reformation history, and women's history.



Résumé
This new addition to the Women Writers in English series records Anne Askew's narrative of her imprisonment for heresy and her interrogation by officials of church and state in the last days of Henry VIII. As a spiritual autobiography, a historical document, and a carefully crafted polemic, the work provides insight into Reformation politics and society in England.
