Example text

It is inevitable that Cicero and Xenophon were elided in the minds of many Elizabethans; it is also true that Cicero translated and wrote admiringly of Xenophon. Yet, these ‘Socratic’ thinkers are also writing in distinct cultures almost four hundred years apart. 51 This difference can be located in the conflicting, though overlapping, accounts of honest, elite masculine conduct which Xenophon and Cicero provide. This double legacy is present (unconsciously) in Civile Conversation as well as in Thomas Pritchard’s The schoole of honest and vertuous lyfe.

Conversation is discussed under this fourth category. There is a clear correspondence between Cicero’s description of decorum and the practice Types of honesty: civil and domestical conversation 27 of conversation described at 1. 34–6; several rules (especially 1, 4, 7, and 9) correspond to his conception of decorum as pleasing behaviour. For him – and, as we will see, the courtesy authors who follow his example – conversation is honest when it conforms to these rules. But it is also honest and profitable in a broader sense because it enables a ‘man’ to fulfil the role ‘he’ has been assigned by ‘Nature’: to be sociable.

The conversation Guazzo anticipates between husband and wife is really a dialogue of the male to the female, or of a husband to his wife. The casual banter between men and women in Castiglione’s treatise has no place in book 3 (although Guazzo does approximate it in the banquet scene of book 4). The limits of domestical conversation are soon apparent when Anniball alludes to the Pauline injunction that women should be silent and obedient (3. 25). This creates a real dilemma: how can a wife be ‘civilised’ 40 Rhetoric and Courtliness in Early Modern Literature if she cannot engage in conversation.
