I Learn Something New Every Day

Browsing Claire's Seventeenth Century I came across this link she had posted on Catharine Trotter. I had previously come across Catharine Trotter (a.k.a. Catharine Trotter Cockburn), since she did philosophical work, in particular defending Locke against his critics. There's a selection from her work in Atherton's lovely little anthology, Women Philosophers of the Early Modern Period. What I hadn't known was that she was also a more literary writer, authoring poetry, plays, and novels. Since I always have an interest in the literary side of philosophers, and since I've been intending to look in a bit on her work in particular, I'll have to see if I can find some of them....
