This article discusses the interconnectedness of funeral monuments built by and/or for women in post-Reformation England. This position paper argues that these artefacts are sites of women's authorship, and that monuments erected in locations often refer to or engage in conversation with those in sites at a great geographical distance. These monumental 'circles' enact the same kind of collaborative authorship that scholars have described in early modern literary coteries; like these circles, monumental circles foster and support women's authorship and social interaction.
