In the French feminist Olympe de Gouge wrote that, "as women have the right to take their places on the scaffold, they must also have the right to take their seats in government". In "Death Comes to the Maiden", Camille Naish explores the issue of women's rights through the history of female execution, concentrating on three major periods of European history: the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the French Revolution.
She reveals the sexual prejudices experienced by those condemned to by hanging, burning or decapitation and examines the lives and deaths of figures such as Joan of Arc, Anne Boleyn and Charlotte Corday. Beyond biography, Naish also considers the symbolic aspects of female execution and stresses the tragic, sacrificial and erotic literary viewpoint of such writers as de Sade, Genet and Brecht. This book should be of interest to students and teachers of cultural studies, history and literature.

About this Item: Routledge. Seller Inventory x Seller Inventory NEW Brand New!. Seller Inventory VIB Language: English. Brand new Book. In , the French femme de lettres Olympe de Gouges wrote that 'as women have the right to take their places on the scaffold, they must also have the right to take their seats in government'. This book explores the issues of female emancipation through the history of female execution, from the burning of Joan of Arc in to the events of the French revolution. Concentrating on individual victims, the author addresses the sexual attitudes and prejudices encountered by women condemned to death.
She examines the horrific treatment of those denounced as witches and reveals the gruesome reality of death by hanging, burning or the guillotine. In an attempt to uncover the historical truth behind such figures as Joan of Arc, Anne Boleyn, Manon Roland and Charlotte Corday, she goes beyond biography to consider their deaths in symbolic terms. She also considers writers such as Genet, Yourcenar and Brecht and their treatment of the tragic, sacrificial and erotic aspects of female execution.
