This collection of sixteen essays considers evidence for the varied forms of women's alliances in early modern England. It shows how women, prohibited from direct participation in the institutional structures that shaped the lives of men, constructed informal connections with other females for purposes of survival, advancement, and creativity. The essays presented here consider a variety of communities--formed among groups as diverse as serving women, vagrants, aristocrats, and authors--in order to study the historical traces of women's connections. Includes an Index.

(Key Words: Women's Studies, Literature, England, Women, Social Networks, Female Friendship, Alliances, Homoeroticism, Marriage, Women's Work, Female Vagrants, Susan Frye, Karen Robertson).
