Women's Life Writing in Early Modern Scotland: Writing the Evangelical Self, C. 1670-c. 1730
This edition presents writings by early modern Scottish women about women-namely themselves. From about 1660, Scottish women began to express themselves, sometimes extensively, in religious prose. Here David Mullan showcases selections of these women's writings from c.1670 until c. 1725, by which time the remarkable self-writing impetus provided by the later covenanting experience began to abate.Much of the material is in the form of journals, some narrowly focused on the inner self, some rather more aware of the external world, some from aristocratic women and some from women in lower social stations. There are also a couple of autobiographies, and within several of the documents will be found women's personal covenants with God.Mullan includes an introductory essay, as well as glossaries to define the evangelical usage of important terms and Scotticisms, introductory comments for each individual document, and annotations to identify obscure words, individuals named in the texts, biblical references, and other points of interest.This volume marks a major step forward in establishing the canon of early modern British women's writing.
