9780873529310: Histoire de la Marquise-Marquis de Banneville (Texts and Translations) (French Edition)

The beautiful Marquise de Banneville meets a handsome marquis, and they fall in love. But the young woman is actually a young man (brought up as a girl and completely in the dark about her--or his--true sex), while the marquis is actually a young woman who likes to cross-dress. Will they live happily ever after?

In the introduction, Joan DeJean presents the fascinating puzzle of authorship of this lighthearted gender-bending tale written in the late seventeenth century in France. Was it François-Timoléon de Choisy, an abbot who was happiest in drag? Marie-Jeanne L'Héritier, an outspoken defender of women's writing of her day? Or Charles Perrault, L'Héritier's uncle and the famous author of such fairy tales as "Sleeping Beauty"? DeJean argues that the tale was a collaboration of all three and discusses the permeable borderline between masculinity and femininity, transvestism, and tolerance--then and now.

About the Author:

François-Timoléon de Choisy was a French author. He was an influential figure in the seventeenth-century French ecclesiastical community.

Review:

"The text has many interesting applications in the undergraduate and graduate classrooms. The crossed-dress life that the characters share offers a fascinating, unconventional approach to court culture of seventeenth-century France, as well as to thorny issues of contemporary society. Joan DeJean provides an excellent introduction that places the appeal of the text firmly within a historical perspective." --Harriet Stone, Washington University
