    A Female Voice in Early Modern Love Poetry – Gaspara Stampa2013In: Trans: Revue de Littérature Générale et Comparée, ISSN 1778-3887, Vol. 15Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the 16th century a revolution took place for women poets in Italy and Gaspara Stampa (1523-1554) was one of the strongest voices of the period. She is not only a woman writing within a literary code created by and for men, Petrarchism – she writes her poetry with confidence, takes tone and makes a woman’s voice heard where it traditionally does not exist. She goes against ideals and creates female speaking and loving subject At the same time, she makes man her muse and silent object of her praise. And where the tradition divides love in high and low, heavenly and earthbound, Stampa seeks union of body and soul, a union of the two lovers, because without love life is not even worth living.

    Gaspara Stampa: Rethinking the Phoenix2018In: Genealogías. Re-Writing the Canon: Women Writing in XVI-XVII Century Italy / [ed] Stefano Santosuosso, ArCiBel Editores, 2018, p. 87-106Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The phoenix is a frequently applied metaphor within poetry of the Cinquecento used with the most various definitions, not the least as a symbol for resurrection and love. In this chapter I discuss how Gaspara Stampa strategically employs the phoenix in order to negotiate both Petrarchan and Neoplatonic ideals of love.

    Abstract [en]

    The complex relationship between psychic structures, social norms, and aesthetic representations is a challenge for every analysis of the historical manifestations of human desire. This book provides an understanding of this relation by an assessment of the linguistic and artistic configurations of desire in European literature over the years

    The Androgyne and the Phoenix: Marguerite de Navarre and Gaspara Stampa: Gendering Early Modern Debates on Love2018Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores Marguerite de Navarre’s and Gaspara Stampa’s literary strategies through a close examination of their appropriation of Neoplatonic ideals of love and gender. Against a backdrop of the cultural and literary canon of the sixteenth century, and through a theoretical framework building on Judith Butler and Michel Foucault, it demonstrates how Marguerite de Navarre and Gaspara Stampa destabilize power relations within the discourses of love and gender, thus gendering early modern debates on love.

    The debates on love concern various ways of understanding classical and early modern treatises on love and are often presented in the genre of the dialogue, such as in the works of Plato, Marsilio Ficino, Leone Ebreo and Tullia d’Aragona. The philosophical ideas presented within these works were vividly discussed in early modern cultural circles and gatherings, such as the Venetian salons and at the French and Italian courts, which strengthens the dialogical character of the debates.

    More precisely, this study examines how these ideas were interpreted and redefined in Marguerite de Navarre’s collection of novellas, the Heptaméron (1559), and Gaspara Stampa’s poems, Rime (1554), – especially when it comes to their use of the mythical figures of the androgyne and the phoenix. Although we are dealing with two rather different writers, one being a queen and the other a virtuosa, a singer and performer of lyrical poetry, the main argument is that their literary works correspond in terms of the literary strategies they employ in order to give women a voice within a male-dominated culture. Thus, through these strategies, Marguerite de Navarre and Gaspara Stampa subvert norms within prevailing discourses of gender and love.
