Description

Margaret Cavendish, the Duchess of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, was a groundbreaking writer – a utopian visionary, a scientist, a science-fiction pioneer. She interacted with Thomas Hobbes and RenĂ© Descartes, and she produced startlingly modern poems unlike anything else published in the seventeenth century for their mixture of scientific and proto-Blakean vision, their deep sympathy with the nonhuman world, and their feminist passion.
