"'A Room of One's Own' is a key text for the question of women writers," says Ms. Ziegler, a specialist on women in the 16th and 17th centuries. "There are a lot of really good early modern women writers, right up there with the big guys. But in part because of the way college curriculums are structured, the subject is not often taught. Male teachers think it will be covered in the women's-issues programs, but it isn't. The other problem has been limited access: Until recently, there were no modern editions of the women's works."
