Penelope's complaint
I believe Penelope's complaint was written by the same authors as Willobie his Avisa and is a second attack on Penelope Rich. In this text Penelope's side of the story is supposedly given and Avisa is accused of being the whore and Penelope the chaste woman but the text is actually another attack on Penelope. The text reveals that Penelope has black eyes. The text specifically mentions Penelope's dream of the Geese and the Eagles we can link Penelope to Avisa through this allusion. It is remembered that Avisa is constantly called an eagle throughout the text of Willobie his Avisa
