    I found this book incredibly interesting. The book contains the known histories of many ancient women writers, along with examples of their writings, some long and complete, some just snippets that have survived.I have now added many individual works by some of these women to my wishlist, and hope to read more about and by them, women like Sappho, Hypatia, Eudocia, Egeria, Proba, and Perpetua. I find them, their lives, and their writing fascinating.
