It offers detailed analyses of poems, letters, and other writings by both Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots, and situates these firmly within the context of other literary figurings of Renaissance queens and queenship. It looks at a range of texts, ranging from the polemical (and largely ephemeral) treatises on the questions of female rule which were prompted by the sudden explosion of women rulers, to works by Shakespeare, Milton, and Elizabeth Cary, as well as the anonymous Arden of Faversham. The book as a whole thus explores both how Renaissance queens wrote themselves and how they were written by others.
