    Lady Mary Wroth was an exceptional poet of the sixteenth century who wrote passionately about relationships between women and men. Wroth was unlike women of her time, because she had a formal education whereas many other women did not have this opportunity. This advantageous educational opportunity allowed Wroth to develop her literary skills beyond many poets of her time. Due to Wroth’s writing about relationships that seemed to resemble real-life relationships, some people of her time heavily criticized her for slander and falsely describing relationships.

Donne often wrote sensuous and spiritual poetry, while Wroth had written Petrarchan (in nature) sonnets concerning love from a woman’s (practically unheard of for that time) perspective. In both Donne’s “A Valediction: forbidding Mourning” and Wroth’s “Sonnet 22” (in the sonnet sequence Pamphilia to Amphilanthus) the issue of separation between lovers is explored by means of nature,…

Similarly, in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet is the most intellectual among her sisters and she enjoys walking, even alone, both of which oppose the standards for a woman in Georgian society. Elizabeth…

    In Shakespeare 's sonnet "Sonnet CXXX," the blazon is constructed in a very peculiar way. Mary Wroth, in sonnet 42 "Pamphilia to Amphilanthus," interprets the blazon within herself rather than her love. Both uses of the blazon depict a time in which love is of the essence. However, in both sonnets, the person in which they are describing is forever unknown. Shakespeare attacks the blazon of his sonnet and creates an anti-blazon, while both sonnets are still in singular perspectives. In…

    that Induced Dr. S[wift] to Write a Poem Called the Lady’s Dressing Room”. This work is a reply to Jonathan Swift’s “The Lady’s Dressing Room”, which describes his experience in a Lady’s dressing room. It goes on to describe a woman as some horrid animal, and this experience ruins women for Swift completely.
