Editorial Reviews

Review

“A truly fascinating look at how educated women used the power of the pen to promote civic goals, as well as how a new female readership emerged and changed as the yet fledgling book industry, Imagining Rhetoric is a highly recommended contribution to Women’s Studies and Literary History reference collections and academic reading lists.”
--Midwest Book Review
