Frances Wright: First Female Civic Rhetor in America.
Connors, Robert J.
College English, v62 n1 p30-57 Sep 1999
Describes the successful public lectures of Frances Wright, and looks more closely at her career as a rhetorician trying to determine why she remains less known today than any other major female figure of the 19th century. Concludes that Wright was remembered with derision by her enemies and with regret by those who would have been her friends. (SC)
