Summary
"Deliberating the Heroine in Early Modern French Womens Theater argues that women playwrights used their heroines as a vehicle through which to question traditional views on women. Denied the powers of cleverness, the authority of deliberation, and the right to speak, heroines were often excluded from central roles in plays by leading male playwrights from this period. Women playwrights, on the other hand, embraced the ideas necessary to expand the boundaries of female heroism. Heroines in tragicomedies, comedies, and tragedies from the mid-seventeenth through the mid-eighteenth centuries reflect a shift in mentalities toward rationality and female agency. Author Theresa Kennedy argues that the deliberative heroine, emerging at the dawn of the eighteenth century, is the most fully developed, exuding all the characteristics of the modern-day heroine. Though she embodies many of the qualities of her heroine counterparts, she also responds to them. Only the deliberative heroine, based on Enlightenment ideals--such as womens ability to rationalize and the complex interplay between reason and sentiment--truly liberates female characters from a history of traditional roles. Whereas other heroines act in accordance with social construct or on impulse, the deliberative heroine is active, and her determination to follow through with her own line of reasoning--that involves both mind and heart--enables her to determine the outcome of events. In the end, this new generation of heroines ushered in an era where women playwrights could make their own contribution to dramatic works at the dawn of the Age of Enlightenment."--
