As a reader of her literary predecessors, and as a writer who herself contributed to the emerging literary tradition, Margaret Cavendish is an extraordinary figure whose role in early modern literary history has yet to be fully acknowledged. In this study, Lara Dodds reassesses the literary invention of Cavendish -- the use she makes of other writers, her own various forms of writing, and the ways in which she creates her own literary persona -- to transform our understanding of Cavendishs considerable accomplishments and influence.
