CHERYL R. JORGENSEN-EARP
The Transfiguring Sword, The Just War of the Women's Social and Political Union
University of Alabama Press, 1997, (Eerste druk), 201 blz., Porto 4,50 euro NL, ISBN 9780817308704, Hardback in zeer goede staat. Gebonden op linnen, ingenaaid. Met stofomslag. Engelstalig., Jorgensen-Earp provides a new understanding of the recurrent rhetorical need to employ conservative rhetoric in support of a radical cause. The Women's Social and Political Union, the militant branch of the English women's suffrage movement, turned to arson, bombing, and widespread property destruction as a strategy to achieve suffrage for women. Because of its comparative rarity, terrorist violence by reform movements is underexplored, as is the discursive rhetoric that accompanies this violence. Largely because of the moral stance that drives such movements, the need to justify violence is greater for the reformist than for the revolutionary terrorist. The burden of rhetorical justification falls even more heavily on women utilizing violence, an option generally perceived as open only to men. The militant suffragettes justifed their turn to limited terrorism by arguing that their violence was part of a just war." Appropriating the rhetoric of a just war in defense of reformist violence allowed the suffragettes to exercise a traditional rhetorical vision for the sake of radical action. The concept of a just war allowed a spinning out of a fantasy of heroes, of a gallant band fighting against the odds. It challenged the imagination of the public to extend to women a heroic vision usually reserved for men and to accept the new expectations inherent in that vision. By incorporating the concept of a just war into their rhetoric, the WSPU leaders took the most conventional justification that Western tradition provides for the use of violence and adapted it to meet their unique circumstance as women using violence for political reform. This study challenges the common view that the suffragettes' use of military metaphors, their vilification of the government, and their violent attacks on property were signs of hysteria and self-destruction. Instead, what emerges is a picture of a deliberate, if controversial, strategy of violence supported by a rhetorical defense of unusual power and consistency..

978082621104 CLAUDE J. SUMMERS EN TED-LARRY PEBWORTH (RED.), Representing Women in Renaissance England
CLAUDE J. SUMMERS EN TED-LARRY PEBWORTH (RED.)
Representing Women in Renaissance England
University of Missouri Press, 1997, (Eerste druk), 250 blz., Porto 4,50 euro NL, ISBN 9780826211040, Hardback in zeer goede staat. Gebonden, ingenaaid. Met stofomslag. Engelstalig., Focusing on women as writers and as subjects of Renaissance nondramatic literature, the fifteen original essays in this volume share the belief that hierarchically ordered male-female relations influence nearly all aspects of human social relations, including those that are apparently not gendered at all. Some of the essays participate in the exciting process of recovering and evaluating women writers whose works are only now entering the canon of English literature, while others examine gender issues in male-authored canonical texts. The contributors to Representing Women in Renaissance England, some of whom are the most distinguished scholars currently active in the field of Renaissance studies, offer correctives to oversimplified views of women in Renaissance literature, frequently questioning received ideas about patriarchy and about women's responses to their varied positions within a society whose hierarchies were configured according to multiple considerations. In their varied approaches and distinct conclusions, these essays contribute significantly to a fuller understanding of the representation of women - by both male and female writers - in the Renaissance. In doing so, they illuminate particular texts and specific writers and call attention to recurrent themes. Perhaps more fundamental, however, they reveal the extent to which basic gender issues are at the very heart of Renaissance literature..
