Abstract

The introduction to this collection of essays edited by Lisa Hopkins and Aidan Norrie provides a clear conceptual grounding for a discussion of women who lived ‘on the edge’ or on multiple edges or margins in the early modern period. The book focuses on the construction and use of identity, or in some cases multiple identities, which allowed women to navigate and explore their vulnerable and ambiguous lives.
