Selected Poetry, Prose, and Translations, with Contextual Materials Coming Soon

Born to merchant-class parents who served in the court of Henry VIII and his queens, Anne Vaughan Lock lived in London and Exeter, spent time in Geneva as a religious exile, belonged to the Cooke sisters’ political-religious circle, maintained friendships with prominent Protestant leaders, and engaged the issues of her day. As a recognized public figure, she took on the roles of reformer, poet, translator, correspondent, spiritual counselor, and political advocate. During her lifetime, she published two books, both of which were reprinted several times. This volume provides a collection of Lock’s works presented in modern spelling, and it includes additional contemporary materials that place her voice in the larger context of the Tudor period, offering insight into the intertwined complexities of political, social, and religious life in sixteenth-century England.

“Felch’s comprehensive, detailed, and thoughtfully designed edition is everything that Anne Lock deserves, and that scholars could hope for, providing extensive background essays, contextual primary materials, and modernized texts with explanatory notes. . . . The texts and headnotes amount to a detailed history of sixteenth-century English radical Protestantism and a guide to the traces of theological resistance in heavily censored printed texts and fragmentary surviving manuscripts. A valuable addition to studies of early modern women, this work will change how Anne Lock is perceived among scholars and how widely she is read.”
- Mary Trull, St. Olaf College
