This final chapter presents some closing thoughts on concepts discussed in this book. The book aims to treat the selected women's poems according to the broad editorial principles behind anthologies such as The Norton Anthology of English Literature. It provides extensive selections of poetry by the five most prolific and prominent women poets of the English Civil War: Anne Bradstreet, Hester Pulter, Margaret Cavendish, Katherine Philips, and Lucy Hutchinson. Collations for Bradstreet's texts are based on The Tenth Muse and Several Poems. Collations for Philips's texts are based on the Tutin manuscript and Poems 1664 and 1667. Collations for Cavendish's texts are based on Poems and Fancies 1653 and 1664. Collations for Hutchinson's Order and Disorder is based on the Beinecke manuscript and the printed version of 1679.
