Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum


Read by Elizabeth Klett

(4.3 stars; 3 reviews)

Aemilia Lanyer's 1611 poem is far more than a retelling of The Passion. It comprises a spirited defense of Eve (and, by extension, all women), elegant praises for her female patrons, a catalogue of virtuous women of the ancient world, and closes with the first "country house" poem written by a woman in English.
