discussions of the margins of culture his characters explore.

theological, philosophical, and poetic writings. The volume, however,
will not eschew the more traditional scholarly interest in Astell's
concerns about gender; rather, it aspires to reveal how Astell's
reflections on gender were always mediated through her diverse set of
