Angelina Grimke: Rhetoric, Identity, and the Radical Imagination (Rhetoric & Public Affairs)by Stephen Howard Browne
Synopses & Reviews
Abolitionist, women's rights activist, and social reformer, Angelina Grimke (1805-79) was among the first women in American history to seize the public stage in pursuit of radical social reform.
Book News Annotation:
An exploration of 19th-century abolitionist and feminist Grimk<'e>'s public communications. The author examines such public declarations as the Appeal to the Christian Women of the South and her May 1838 Pennsylvania Hall Address, and concludes that Grimk<'e> took from the world what had been presented to her (her identity) and, through words, fashioned a rationale for radical collective action out of it. A prominent theme in the work is the presence of violence in her rhetorical imagery and its origins.
