While waiting for the new critical editions of her writings, some of
Elizabeth's poems, speeches, translations and letters can be found
online through Luminarium
(http://www.luminarium.org/renlit/elizabib.htm) and, if you or your
institution subscribes, through the Brown Women Writer's Project
(http://www.wwp.brown.edu/index.html)

I want to thank Frank Whingham and Jack Heller who graciously told me
about the forthcoming book on QE1's writings.  For anyone else
interested in details, using their clues I found it at Amazon, and the
essentials are:

Elizabeth I : Speeches, Letters, Verses, and Prayers by Elizabeth, Leah
S. Marcus (Editor), Janel M. Mueller (Editor), Mary Beth Rose $40.00
University of Chicago Press  To be published in July 2000.

With gratitude,
Mike Jensen

I was also at this MLA session-very exciting, truly.  (One of the times
I've wished most for early modern memory skills!)  The editors are Leah
Marcus, Janel Mueller, and Mary Beth Rose.  The title is something like
Collected Writings of EI, and it's due out from Chicago sometime this
summer.  From what I remember, the collection is intended as a
single-volume edition of Elizabeth's writing which will range from the
public speeches and well-known (to us) verse to comparatively "private"
letters.  Most notable is Elizabeth's correspondence with James, which
figures a kinship relation in fascinatingly mutable terms-an
illuminating counterpoint to the gender dynamics observable in the
speeches and elsewhere.  While the editors acknowledged that a truly
"comprehensive" collection would require multiple volumes, this edition
promises to be a provocative and wide-ranging collection notwithstanding
limitations of print space.
