Editorial Reviews

Review

"... [a] rich, well-researched volume ... This valuable book illuminates underexplored aspects of early modern thought, with important consequences for understanding the period's plays. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty."
T. Pollard, Choice

"... [it] sheds new light on the development of science from early modern to modern ... The sheer breadth of knowledge in this book will make it an appealing read for students of Shakespearian performance, gender studies, the history of science, and the history of the book."
Benjamin C. Miele, The Shakespeare Newsletter

"[Floyd-Wilson's] clarity and simplicity of style and wealth of documentation increase her reader's pleasure. This book reminds us that the original, though now rare, meaning of occult is "secret or hidden". [The book] focuses on an area between God's Providence and the Devil's interference, where an animate, mysterious natural world challenged early modern men and women to discover its occult secrets."
Barbara H. Traister, Renaissance Quarterly

Book Description

Intended for scholars of literature, gender, and science history, this book argues that Renaissance drama participates in natural philosophy's production of epistemological boundaries. The representation of preternatural phenomena not only demonstrates a belief in occult forces, but it also suggests that presumptions about women's secret knowledges influenced emergent scientific discourse.
