Deciding that something needs to be done, she leaves her runaway career and like a magpie, steals from the rich and famous to return it to those who truly need it. Without the required training, she forever goes against the rules, steals a ton of socks, shudders at the thought of urine, avoids the doctors and hair salons, and finally finds a way to fill her need without causing harm.
The day comes when she is asked to make a choice between staying in the pleasant groves of academia and work as a “Poverty Skalkette,” or move toward her passion to perform in her first opera. The author is faced with the dilemma of far-fetched ambition facing those passionate with the simple sensibility associated with good hearted tradition in family, love and tribe.
Learning to unwrap the female songbird inside and allow my “charming prince” to sing before an audience turned out to be the greatest and most creative decision I ever made. I was still a shy teenager, when Professor Cox discovered I had a voice which began to stir attention to my piano playing as well. I was picked to audition for the faculty Theatre Institute, studying singing under Professor Grims and theatre under Professor Potter.”
“Soon mother’s patience was stretched to the limit, and my father had to use his weapon of punishment to regain his lost fi sher.”
“There are a thousand, there are ten thousand, different ways to die; and still I am of the opinion that to be pulled in two halves by one’s arms and legs would not be the worst way of all. I can very well imagine that.”
Voltaire, who published as anglicized Arouet, was a French Enlightenment writer noted for his wit, his attacks on the Catholic Church, and his advocacy of freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and separation of church and state.
Part autobiography and part social history, Arouet’s account is organized as a quasi-novel, as he fashions himself into a swashbuckling, gallant character based on his own physical description and behavior. Arouet has a rich imagination, is upset by the present times, while reminiscing about the past. Once part of the ancien régime, he renounces it, seeing all the bad and hypocrisy, and makes an implacable enemy of the Jesuits.
Aurore Dupin was obsessed with becoming an equal member of society and took the name Voltaire as a middle name in order to move beyond the title of mademoiselle. As V.Arouet, she reached out to the upper classes and began to get a sense of the injustices of the French monarchy and court. V.Arouet started her campaign by writing witty satires against nobles, courtiers, and other social factions, disguised as aphorisms inscribed on the walls of Paris in the night. In 1734, she anonymously released works entitled Letters and Maxims. When still a bourgeois, she scolded the frivolity of her playmates and superiors at court for vanity, hypocrisy and a false sense of superiority. Her pamphlet Letters on the works of Molière (1748) was a revenge against violence, hate and stupidity prevalent at The Salpetriere convent when she was in custody there as a girl, and was based upon her own experiences and also a source for Les Liaisons Dangereuses , years later.
In 1734, Françoise-Marguerite d’Aubigné gained a title of nobility after issuing many marriage proposals, and finally d’origniall named the Abbot Charles Tristan de Cursay, but took the name of her generous benefactor. Voltaire is considered by some to be “the most gifted woman writer of the era”. By 1736 she had earned the admiration of Madame de Pompadour. In 1738, she met Denis Diderot at the salon of Madame Necker. Nearing middle age and still known as Mademoiselle Arouet, she would travel to Britain under the protection of Jean Mongault, her acqitaintance. In London, she mingled within salons, thanks to her social standing and her pro Seigneur de Biran.
This was the beginning of an illustrious career. She sailed to Voltaire’s castle at Cirey, where she remained for more than 20 years as a virtual wife, as she wrote all his works, including Candide, which began with the famous All is for the best in this best of all possible worlds . This is the mantra she challenged. She remained legally married to Cursay the rest of her life.
In the mid-eighteenth century, an outlandish social abuse was discovered. An alarming epidemic of courtiers who masochistically enjoyed being beaten by their spouses. These scourges of the elite were wittily termed beating mothers, who counterproductively chose to appease the self-seeking whims of their weak-minded pretentious brats as punishments. Even the aristocracy did not escape this self-indulgence; even wealthy and influential Catholics did not have a problem with outraging the rest of society. Average people and religious communities provided that they showed they saw the error of their ways, were given a lighter punishment. Other convents from the church gained the name “convents of fear” and the women were de-clericalized and paraded through the streets in their nun-robes, a white blanket over their heads, given the yellow cross sewn in their clothes and being run through the streets by guards.
In the book A Sister To Revolution, a Sister’s Evolving Conception of Society and Self in the era of the French Revolution, Susan Williams shows how Sister Agnes Louise Souvent offered an alternative to typical convent life. She was passionate about establishing an order that adhered to the rules set in place by their superiors and referred to the Bible, with the book’s first phrases taking place in a convent, where Sister Agnes was raised and educated. With her sister at the time of revolution, the siblings deplored the legal inequalities of the world they saw before them in disagreement with the vested interests of the church and the monarchy, that only nobility could hold power, and that women were not educated. Only marriage or the convents were professions.
Nuns were educated, with attention on logic and integral calculus, music, and Greek, with a bias toward Roman laws, even canon laws related to the Apostle Thomas, rather than Sharia for men or Jewish scriptures for women. Sciences, letters and philosophy. Literacy was valued, since the Gospel was read aloud each day, the missal book shared between all the nuns. Women could wear slippers to sleep and were allowed homespun clothing and were encouraged to stroll the gardens or have hobbies of their own. The half-dozen nuns who rocked the boat or violated the principles or forged letters their fingers (the nuns in France were similar to the ones in the early new world United States) eventually found their cozy cushion of privilege taking away and replaced by a vertical wooden box containing a shoebox where their head could peer out, with a small opening for food, more like a cage, where the pace to learn was hastened to match that of men. The schedule began at 3 a.m. It was also rumored in this atmosphere, that masturbation, which was commonly perceived as a disease like epilepsy, was punished at night. Married to their nuns, the priests were controlling their sexuality
