Editorial Reviews


'Women and Islam in Early Modern English Literature points readers in a new direction. The study of Anglo-Islamic relations has been dominated by the male perspective, and Andrea rightly alerts scholars to the need for bringing in the female perspective, from both the Ottoman (and Arab and Armenian and Circasian) East as well as the English.' Clio

Book Description

In this innovative study, Bernadette Andrea focuses on the contributions of women and their writings in the early modern cultural encounters between England and the Islamic world. This book is a significant contribution to critical and theoretical debates in literary and cultural, postcolonial, women's, and Middle Eastern studies.
