This disregard of the importance of rhetoric in The Faerie Queene, Dixon argues, obscures Spensers larger rhetorical method and the structural dynamic it generates. Dixon identifies Britomarts evolution in Books III-V as the poems centre and elucidates the rhetorical strategies that invest Spensers argument for justice.

Building on Kenneth Burkes conception of courtship in rhetoric as the use of suasive devices for the transcending of social estrangement, Dixon interprets The Faerie Queene as a narrative of courtship in purpose as well as content, arguing that its tales of questing knights compose an artifact of suasive devices whereby Spenser courts a meeting of minds with his audience on the subject of justice.
