    1. Aemilia Lanyer 1569 1645 was born to Margaret Johnson and Baptista Basano She would become a well known woman and poet years after she published a volume of religious poems in 1611 She grew up in the height of Elizabethan power but lived her adult life under the reign of James I during his move towards a strictly patriarchal society Aemilia Lanyer was an influential poet because she was the first English woman to have her book of poems, Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum, published This book challenged the thoughts on gender and ideology of the time.Little is known about Lanyer s family or her life There are multiple leads in her family tree and even their religious background A.L Rowse believes Lanyer s family was actually Jewish based on records he found in the Italian town of Basano, where Lanyer s family came from Rowse is not in the majority though most critics believe her family was Protestant because her writing appears to be strongly rooted in Protestant s traditions and her parents are believed to have connections with the Protestant reform movement Basano was a court musician and died when Lanyer was seven After his death, Lanyer was sent to Susan Bertie, dowager countess of Kent, where she received five years of humanist education The skills she learned during her schooling are seen later in her poems Lanyer s work clearly showcases knowledge of Latin, classical literature, and the Bible along with rhetorical and poetic skills.In 1587 Lanyer s mother passed away and 18 year old Lanyer found herself immersed in court life There, she attracted the attention of Henry Carey, Queen Elizabeth s first cousin The affair that bloomed from this relationship lasted until 1592, when Lanyer was found with child and married a musician like her father named Alfonso Lanyer The baby was a boy which they named Henry When Aemilia and Alfonso decided to have their own children, they ran into difficulties as Lanyer had several miscarriages.It was these miscarriages which prompted Lanyer to visit Simon Forman, a popular astrologer, in 1597 Forman kept detailed diaries of his clients and although his handwriting was messy, these diaries give readers a new look on Lanyer and her life Not only was she worried about miscarriages but also money troubles When she was at court and involved with her lover Carey, Lanyer had access to large amounts of money and missed this in her marriage She hoped Alfonso would be knighted which would make her a lady and provide money As he did with his other clients, Forman attempted to seduce her he came to her house when Alfonso was at sea and tried to have a liaison with her Lanyer refused and some critics believed it was Forman s attempt that prompted Lanyer to write about men s untrustworthiness in her poems.Alfonso died in 1613 and left Lanyer with financial woes These difficulties would stay with Lanyer for the rest of her life She tried various ventures to earn money such as founding a school in St Giles in the Field from 1617 1619 Unfortunately, the school was unsuccessful Not much about her life is known after that Lanyer s final record was her death on April 3, 1645 she was seventy six years old.

    2. The best poem in all the world. I like how she defends all women from Adam's sin. I used to like old English poems but Eve's Apology is the best of all. I recommended this book to all the person who agrees that Eve was not guilty about the sin.

    3. It's not very good poetry, but it's a, pardon, ballsy piece of rhetoric. It basically does what most early proto-feminist texts do, which is speak from a stereotypically feminine position but reclaim that as a position of power. In this, Lanyer argues against the doctrine of original sin and even goes as far as saying that if anyone should take the blame it's Adam, that hedonist male moron, because Eve's just a poor old woman behaving femininely and was duped by that more cunning male figure, Sa [...]

    4. I'm still hung up on Donne and it is truly RUINING all subsequently read poets. Aemilia Lanyer is probably, more than likely even a great read that gives you some intersections between culture and gender in 1611, and lets you in on the female patronage model and how its dedicatory arts or encomia (if we want to look at it that way) complicate any kind of proto-feminist rhetoric. The lurking question being, did the patron have more than a gendered lexicon of power in rhetoric? Were they actuallyr [...]

    5. This is a well-edited critical edition of Lanyer's volume Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum. Woods gives excellent critical and textual introductions, and has edited the text well with helpful notes for students. The Salve Deus itself is a chaotic volume speaking through multiple voices and moods, and the dedicatory letters which preface it are as much a part of the text as the poetry itself.Lanyer tends to be read as a straightforwardly proto-feminist poet particularly in her defence of Eve, but recent [...]

    6. I'm not going to say I loved the initial reading of this early 1600s poem about the Passion of Jesus Christ, but when the pieces finally clicked, and I realized just how radical this woman was getting in her representations of Biblical stories and her validation of a truly powerful and sober female space, I had to admit I was intrigued. I'm still enjoying thinking about feminist issues all over this text still relevant today about the role of women within churches and the power of the written wo [...]

    7. The most interesting parts of this poem were, for me, Lanyer's dedications to her female patrons which comprised a good third of the poem. In these dedicatory addresses she safely (because of her female audience) expresses strong proto-feminist sentiments, which I think are pretty kick-ass. In line with that, the section of the poem called "Eve's Apology" did a bold re-writing of the fall from Eden, laying the blame on Adam - if he was so superior to Eve, why wasn't he strong enough to reject he [...]

    8. The edition I read is a 70s hardback edited by A.L. Rowse with a prefatory essay arguing that Lanyer is the "dark lady" of Shakespeare's sonnets. Four stars for that edition; three for the poems on their own. The long poem about the Passion is boring to me except for the apology for Eve in the middle of it.

    9. While the poetry itself isn't particularly beautiful, Lanyer was able to accomplish significance in meaning at a time when women, especially one who wasn't noble-born, were seldom educated or allowed to publish.

    10. So phenomenal to see such a talented, strong, vocal woman at such a time in history. Had they lived at the same time, she and Woolf would have been good friends.

    11. I'm most impressed with the dedicatory poems wherein Lanyer reveals a circle of highly educated literary women at a time when women were rarely allowed to publish.

    12. I have respect for Lanyer but I can only get through so much early modern literature before it's just too much
