Owen Feltham was a 17th-century English author and known for his critical role in the development of the English essay as a literary genre. His 1623 collection of essays entitled ‘Resolves’ were written as short commentaries on three distinct subjects – theology, ethics, and politics. However, this work has since had significant controversy surround it, specifically social and gender-equality. Feltham, a progressive for his time, exhibits social and sexual ideology and promotes woman as woman, rather than an extension of man. This did not sit well with many readers, especially those in higher-class England.

 

This 1696 edition was printed with his work “Lusoria: or Occasional Pieces”.
