Distracted Subjects: Madness and Gender in Shakespeare and Early Modern Culture

⫷ Free (Anglais) [ Distracted Subjects: Madness and Gender in Shakespeare and Early Modern Culture ] ✲ Kindle Author Carol Thomas Neely ⇴ In the first book to provide a feminist analysis of early modern madness, Carol Thomas Neely reveals the mobility and heterogeneity of discourses of distraction, the most common term for the condition in late sixteenth and early seventeenth century England Distracted Subjects shows how changing ideas of madness that circulated through medical, dramatic, and political texts transformed and gendered subjectivities Supernatural causation is denied, new diagnoses appear, and stage representations proliferate Drama sometimes leads and sometimes follows other cultural discourses or forges its own prophetic figures of distraction The Spanish Tragedy first links madness to masculine tragic self representation, and Hamlet invents a language to dramatize feminine somatic illness Innovative women s melancholy is theorized in medical and witchcraft treatises and then elaborated in the extended portrait of the Jailer s Daughter s distraction in The Two Noble Kinsmen Lovesickness, newly diagnosed in women, demands novel cures, and allows expressions of transgressive sexual desire in treatises and in plays such as As You Like It The rituals of possession and exorcism, intensely debated off stage, are mocked and exploited on stage in reiterated comic scenes of confinement that madden men to enhance women s power.Neely s final chapter provides a startling challenge to the critically alluring analogy between Bedlam and the early modern stage by documenting that Bethlem hospital offered care, not spectacle, whereas stage Bedlamites served metatheatrical and prophylactic, not mimetic, ends An epilogue places this particular historical moment within the longer history of madness and shows how our own attitudes toward distraction are haunted by those earlier debates and representations.
