Although fictional characters do not create their own speech, the illusion that they do is often crucial to a reader`s appreciation of a literary text. Feminine Rhetorical Culture examines the development of the illusion that literary characters speak through the reader`s appreciation of a metaphorical connection between speech, sexuality, and morality. The book focuses on nominally feminine speech in the works of three male writers: Ovid, in the HEROIDES, George Turberville, in his TRANSLATION OF OVID`S Heroides, and Michael Drayton, in ENGLAND`S HEROICAL EPISTLES. In the intersection of their adaptations of culture and language, they mediate and qualify cultural perspectives about feminine speech and relationship between men and women.
