John Wesley and the Liberty To Speak: The Rhetorical and Literacy Practices of Early Methodism.
Burton, Vicki Tolar
College Composition and Communication, v53 n1 p65-91 Sep 2001
Discusses how in early Methodism John Wesley created an extracurricular site of literacy and rhetoric that empowered women and the working classes to read, write, and speak in public. Notes that Wesley's "method" of literacy in community not only transformed religious life in Britain but also redefined the intersections of education, class, and gender. (SG)
