Abstract

By examining the writings of Hattie Reynolds, this analysis seeks to demonstrate the rhetorical strategies she used to situate herself outside of the nineteenth-century private sphere. Such strategies allowed Reynolds to take unusual paths for a woman and prove that her writing and life offer significant contributions to women’s rhetoric.
