When poet Hester Pulter died in 1678, her verse survived in a single leather-bound manuscript, barely remembered until scholars reopened it in the last years of the twentieth century and discovered 120 remarkable original poems. Professor Leah Knight will provide a fascinating account of harnessing the digital revolution of our own time in order to transform this important addition to early modern women’s writing by making it freely available through The Pulter Project: Poet in the Making
