Bibliography pp. Index pp. As Pender astutely notes, female authors' expressions of self-effacement, self-deprecation, or insufficiency are among the most frequently anthologized parts of their works, and in the modern period they have often been read as clear evidence that the authors had uncritically internalized oppressive, patriarchal attitudes toward authorship. Although academic specialists no longer take individual author's self-deprecation at face value, the field of Renaissance literature as a whole continues to view modest self-effacement as the cornerstone of female authorship.

Pender rightly points out that scholars do not read male authors' self-effacement in such a literal way, and she challenges us to read women's expressions of modesty with greater scrutiny and rhetorical care The great strength of this book lies in its combination of detailed, nuanced readings of individual passages and its birds-eye view of the way the uncritical understanding of women's modesty tropes has inflected the field as a whole. This book will certainly inspire scholars to return to the many other professions of modesty found in women's writing and to assess them anew The chapters on Sidney and Lanyer are particularly powerful the six chapters of this book have much to offer readers, and Pender succeeds in making the case that female professions of modesty are highly crafted rhetorical performances that require careful and nuanced analysis.

In this Book

Its focus on gendered discourse makes a significant contribution to feminist criticism. At the same time, it can be read as a series of case studies chosen to reflect major issues that early modern women writers faced and set out to solve by subtle and diverse uses of the rhetoric of modesty.
