This book focuses on female tragic heroes in England from c.1610 to
c.1645. Their sudden appearance can be linked to changing ideas
about the relationships between bodies and souls; men's bodies and
women's; marriage and mothering; the law; and religion. Though the
vast majority of these characters are closer to villainesses than
heroines, these plays, by showing how misogyny affected the lives
of their central characters, did not merely reflect their culture,
but also changed it.
