Fletcher places the death of Bonduca in act IV which gives full visibility to her cousin Caratach, the emergent ruler, who takes over completely in act V. Bonduca only represents a "desperate and strange" 4.
Moreover, the rejection of the function at the end of the line reinforces the rejection of Bonduca as a permanent ruler. What a spirit! Such failure is not only imposed on them by others but is also self-driven through a misappropriation of prophetic powers. The French Jeanne jars with the traditional image of the prophetess. Prophetic women used to express their knowledge of the supernatural in hermetic imagery and language whereas she is assigned plain vocabulary in the French play.
As for the English Joan, her prophesies simply do not resist the trial of time. Prophets usually situated their visions at the end of times, but Joan is trapped by her problematic status as a female warrior, she can only exist while the war is on, while the crisis is raging. This reduced temporality imposes a different time frame to her prophecies.
They are anchored in the present and are very likely to be proved wrong in the light of her military failures.
On the contrary it reasserts the danger of her transience and it shows that her prophecies will not resist the trial of such a short time. If Drama uses time and heroic features to make sure that the virago is short-lived onstage, visual theatrical conventions also contribute to portray female warriors in a reassuring light for a male-dominated society. Joan is the epitome of "Breeches parts [which] became common only after the turn of the century, presumably because of the developing skills of the boy players.
It required a boy actor trained in manipulating gender signs 6 voice, costume, make-up, hair and gestures. The boy actor needed to resort to an illusory grotesque femininity to succeed in creating his character. However, with a breeches part, the performing challenge is more complex as the equation implies a return to some form of masculinity. In short, a boy plays an affected woman who will affect masculine features. In the case of the Shakespearean Joan, the three parts of this acting equation are of equal importance and will coexist within the same performing body.
French-English Dictionary (35,273 Entries)
In order to maintain the exceptional status of Joan, her femininity even grotesquely displayed must survive. Thus the performing body becomes a palimpsest of different types of masculinities and different types of femininities. The body is the cohesive recipient of reminiscences of gender features and not of a complete masculinity at war with a complete femininity.
We are confronted with a body endowed with spectral genders. Gender spectrality should be understood in two ways: genders presented as illusions through the performing act, and the acting body as the receptacle of memories of both genders, of singular characteristics from both genders.
She is an androgynous woman who is portrayed as being devoid of the expected female coquetry. She is detached from the dangerous female materiality and from female flaws.
Numéros en texte intégral
The sexual hesitation is dissolved into the dramatic convention of breeches-parts or into the visual exaltation of female honest modesty. A good Amazon is either a male Amazon or a body endowed with spectral genders. Early Modern Drama both in England and in France seems to resolve the problem of a transgressive sexual identity through a theatrical speciality of the genders. They are not actual constructs; they become conventional features of a dramatic illusion and can be perceived in an acceptable anamorphotic manner 8.
Theatre pushes the mutation of the myth a step further through its inherent materiality and thus echoes the moralized image of the female warrior that the Renaissance had gradually developed. She is still named an "Amazon" but her disturbing ability to gain power is gradually reduced throughout the sixteenth century and paradoxically she is transformed into a peacemaker.
In this essay, the Amazon has been tamed in the most subtle fashion by turning her into a Christian pacific image of abnegation. Although Capella argues in favour of equality between men and women and debunks the idea that women are lesser than men because they do not hold civil and sacred offices, his revision of the myth of the Amazon could paradoxically prove to be a trap.
According to Capella, the Amazons owed their superiority not only to their extraordinary physical abilities, but to the fact that they had had the strength to listen to their reason and to give up their weaponry for the good of the community. This image is a double-edged sword again as it justifies the exclusion of women from martial affairs and the limitation of their occupation to a peaceful domestic sphere. Although it fundamentally advocates a genderless civil concord, Capella unwillingly participates in creating an acceptable Amazon and thus performs a peaceful amazonomachy. She is a tolerable female warrior as she is devoid of the murderous streak propagated by the Greek myth.
The problematic aggressive femininity of the Amazon is slowly erased to the benefit of a more natural martial maleness. The mythical Amazons are presented as the physical emanations of the male god of war. This Amazon is not a common woman but a divinely inspired creature. Gardez-vous bien de le dire. She is not presented as an Amazon but as the heir of Deborah and David and "the sword she is holding is reminiscent of the double-edged flaming sword of the angel leading the chosen people" 12 Warner, Her bold strength is a gift of God and is to be considered independently from the question of gender.
Her virtue becomes a platonic absolute and can be conveniently detached from her sex to be placed in the mystical androgyny of angelic purity. The Amazon is tamed by God himself. She is not a changed woman; she is turned into a sexless creature as she intercedes between the human and the divine.
La genèse de la nouvelle en France au Moyen Age - Persée
The religious reading of the female warrior gives her a sociopolitical underpinning turning her into a stabilizing image. Indeed, if she is the instrument of the divine, she becomes a rallying beacon and moves from a symbol of chaos to the paradoxical vehicle of a political ideal of civil concord. However, the interesting aspect of this new form of amazonomachy is that it implies two forms of preservation of order: pacification through destruction or pacification through acceptation. In the case of Jeanne and Bonduca, they represent a form of pacification through acceptation: Jeanne is a divine instrument and Bonduca is a noble woman and a legitimate queen even if she is inefficient.
As they are both accepted for what they now represent, they are the perfect vehicle for a dynamic of civil concord and peaceful union of the national body. Indeed, Jeanne represents the assertion of a French Catholic France united around its royal figure. Symbolically Fronton du Duc advocates the preservation of the territorial integrity of the kingdom by preventing any possibility for English claims to the throne.
Joan is turned into the symbol of a Catholic union around the figure of the king. Krauss, B. Buchloh, M. Calinescu, and others. Attendance at all screenings is mandatory. The mid-thirteenth-century Roman de la Rose was arguably the single most influential vernacular text of the French Middle Ages.
A sprawling, encyclopedic summa composed by two separate authors writing some forty years apart, whether taken as a source of inspiration or an object of condemnation, the Roman de la Rose became an obligatory point of reference for generations of authors. The proposed seminar will initiate students into the complex allegorical narrative of the Roman de la Rose.
Through discussion of topically organized scholarship on the Rose and its historical ambient the seminar will provide students with the historical and historiographical orientation required for sophisticated interpretation of the work. Taught in English, with a separate discussion section in French. Taught at Newberry Library. This course will examine the philological notion of interpolation—the insertion of new material into a text perceived to be faulty or lacking—not only as an operation of textual reparation or editorial alteration, but more importantly as constituting in and of itself a form of literary writing or authorship, whose poetics we will explore.
What is, we will ask, the relation between literary scholarship and literary creation? We will concentrate primarily, but not exclusively, on early-modern writings, employing a comparative perspective which will allow the examination of other artistic practices beyond the literary, including music and sculpture. In addition, theoretic readings will be discussed to examine problems such as the coherence and identity of literary texts, the role of the author, and the status of philology and literary criticism.
The course will be in English, but students registering under the French course number will read French texts in their original language and conduct all written work in French. This seminar will be conducted on two tracks. On the one hand, we will study major contributions to hermeneutic theory including positions that understand themselves as anti-hermeneutic. This course traces the history of the autobiographical genre in France from the eighteenth century to the present.
The study of key texts will be accompanied by an introduction to some critical perspectives. We will give special emphasis to questions of reference and authenticity, identity and subject formation, and gender and the family.http://web.difccourts.ae/toros-con-la-letra-c.php

In his treatise on education, Rousseau has to find a way out of a deep paradox inherent to the Enlightenment psychology: how could he account for the socialization of a human being with the conceptual resources of a solipsistic psychology?
