Gazes. Through Different Eyes. Feminine Science and Literature in Early Modern Culture

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The question of a dominant model of vision will be at stake in this essay, which will try to provoke other questions on the ways in which non-dominant models of vision have tried to spread out in a particularly revolutionary and dramatic period. This century is the 17th and the non-dominant model of vision is that of the female gaze. Particularly the works of three English writers – Margaret Cavendish, Aphra Behn, Eliza Haywood – and their commitment with the matter of gaze will be analysed.
