"Apostrophes to Cities: Urban Rhetorics in Isabella Whitney and Moderata Fonte," by Ann Rosalind Jones (155-175)

"The two texts I focus on here suggest that law and philosophy, discourses available to men at universities, could also be raided by women writers for formulas that authorized their texts, even as those texts reworked the original premises of the will, the Platonic dialogue, and the Ciceronian oration."
