AUTHOR

Cavendish, Margaret, Lilley, Kate, Lilley, Kate

SUMMARY

Flamboyant, theatrical and ambitious, Margaret Cavendish was one of the seventeenth century's most striking figures - a woman who ventured into the male spheres of politics, science, philosophy and literature. The Blazing World is a highly original work: part Utopian fiction, part feminist text, it tells of a Lady shipwrecked on the Blazing World where she is made Empress and uses her power to ensure that it is free of war, religious division and unfair sexual discrimination. This volume also includes The Contract, a romance in which love and law work harmoniously together, and Assaulted and Pursued Chastity, which explores the power and freedom a woman can achieve in the disguise of a man. In her introduction, Kate Lilley place these writings in the context of Cavendish's extraordinary life and discusses the roles of women in these texts. This updated edition includes a chronology, revised notes and a new bibliography.Cavendish, Margaret is the author of 'Blazing World and Other Writings', published 1994 under ISBN 9780140433722 and ISBN 0140433724.
