In vivid, precise prose Dutten brings to life the turbulent world and vibrant mind of Margaret Cavendish, lady, writer, philosopher. Cavendish was an endlessly curious woman trapped in an era where women were rarely more than property. She struggled against the age, and in becoming a writer, challenged and changed the world. Utterly charming, richly envisioned. One of my favorite books of recent memory.
