'A Moving Rhetoricke': Gender and Silence in Early Modern England

Front Cover
Manchester University Press, 2002 - 198 pages
The complex history of silence provides an important framework for rethinking gender in early modern England and for challenging critical approaches to it. It is with this quiet rhetoric that Christina Luckyi's work is concerned. Based on an investigation of a wide range of contemporary sources, from domestic conduct guides to emblem books, this study offers fresh perspectives on both culture and literature, using silence as its fulcrum.
