Two Broad Questions

Hello again. I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's chat about Aemilia Lanyer and Lady Mary Wroth. I'll be concluding the session with two broad questions and I thought I'd stick them up here in advance.

(1) Like Jonson, Lanyer is invested in community-making through literary production. Like Donne, she engages actively with religion and scripture. So what makes her version of these undertakings different?

(2) Taking Lanyer and Wroth as case studies, how does attending to women's writing enrich, complicate, or challenge the way we understand seventeenth-century English literary culture?
