Sexually liberated and financially self sustaining, Tullia d'Aragona dared to argue that the one ethical kind of love among lady and guy is person who acknowledges either the sensual and the non secular wishes of humankind. pointing out sexual drives to be essentially irrepressible and innocent, she challenged the Platonic and non secular orthodoxy of her time, which condemned all sorts of sensual event, denied the rationality of ladies, and relegated femininity to the area of physicality and sin. humans, she argued, encompass physique and soul, feel and mind, and honorable love needs to be in accordance with this genuine nature.

By exposing the intrinsic misogyny of triumphing theories of affection, Aragona vindicates all ladies, offering a morality of affection that restores them to highbrow and sexual parity with males. via Aragona's sharp reasoning, her experience of irony and humor, and her popular linguistic ability, an extraordinary photograph unfolds of an clever and considerate girl battling sixteenth-century stereotypes of ladies and sexuality.
