Armstrong admits that Cicero's influence on Renaissance humanism is hardly news, yet he focuses on linking oratory to poetry through their Ciceronian emphasis on rhetoric as moving hearers to civil action, distinguishing this from the Ramist tendency to subordinate it to logic as a form of knowledge.
On page 15, for example, she explains parenthetically that rhetors are "users of rhetoric," yet a few pages later one is in the thick of a discussion of Ramist ideas about "the confusion of dialectic and rhetoric."
