Description - Teresa of Avila and the Rhetoric of Femininity by Alison Weber
'A startling case study of how women were able to function as leaders and intellectuals in cultures that forbade these roles in the most extreme way. It throws new light on Teresa as a complex personality, highly political, consciously strategic in her selection of rhetoric for different context, humorous and ironic. This book will become a definitive study for revising all previous work about Teresa.'
