Mary, Lady Chudleigh (1656–1710) was a confidante of John Dryden and a leading figure amongst the women writers of her day. In many ways a proto-feminist, Lady Chudleigh was still a provincial aristocrat and devout Protestant, and her work shows many of the apparent contradictions of the early modern era. This is the only selection of her work available in paperback, and her work deserves to be known for more than a few anthology standards. Born Mary Lee at Winslade, a manor-house in the parish of Clyst St. George, some five miles from Exeter, she married Lord Chudleigh, an older man and a wealthy landowner whose seat was Place Barton in Ashton, a village in the Teign Valley, on the edge of Dartmoor.
