This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book provides some measure of how the assessments, critics are approaching early modern women as writers, and more specifically as writers in the canonically charged mode of poetry. It focuses on both histories of inclusion, with a use of precedents indistinguishable from that of male contemporaries. It analyses the way in which gender inflects the insertion of a feminine lyric voice into generic conventions. Generic precedent is perceived to be available for use by the woman writer herself even if it is not valued by her contemporary readers. Suzanne Trill persuasively argues for Mary Sidney's rhetorical methods in revision of psalm translation as part of an unrecognised, divinely inspired project of collaborative authorship.
