Maggie Ellen Ray's article "John Taylor and the Ghost of Long Meg of Westminster: Authorship and Poetic Authority in The Womens Sharpe Revenge,” was recently published in Studies in Philology 113.4 (Fall 2016). The article examines the links between the works in John Taylor's Folio and the pseudonymous defense of women titled "The Womens Sharpe Revenge," arguing not only for Taylor's authorship of the defense text but also that he uses the figure of the marginal women throughout his literary corpus to establish his own poetic authority.
