Example text

First and foremost, one of the best ways for Labe 18 Entering the Literary Stage to stimulate the support of a broader outside readership is to indicate that she already has supporters. " Likewise, under the guise of modesty, Labe cleverly exploits once again the notion of honte, or shame, which she previously employed as an aggressive rhetorical tactic to activate male anxiety over blossoming female literary competition. Here, in warning her supporters somewhat playfully that they will "imbibe" with her equally the shame or scandal that her works might provoke, Labe simultaneously conveys two semisubliminal messages to her readers.

Lines 41-48; see Appendix 13) Continuing the motivational energy of the previous verbs "prier" and "animer," the verb "inciter" occupies a transitional role in the movement between the sisterhood of women (the "nous") and the individual woman (the "chacune"). As she concludes reflection on the goals of gloire, honneur, and reputacion to be sought by women in the public world, Labe goes on to explore what each woman (the pronoun chacune possessing a more inclusive resonance than quelcune, the corresponding pronoun of individuality in the first half of the text) might reap for herself in pursuing intellectual study and, more specifically, writing.

Lines 13-16; see Appendix 10) First of all, the invocation of honneur echoes the heroic resonances of gloire as an appropriate goal for the newly educated woman. Labe's use of the term honneur, moreover, demonstrates once again her sensitivity to the implicitly gendered terminology of her culture. Just as her choice of the phrase "honneste liberte" in the Epistre's opening statement engages the verbal play already mentioned between the connotations of (male) nobility and (female) virtue, her choice of the substantive honneur here valorizes female access to that more typically male realm of glory and renown, over and beyond the traditional space of womanly propriety normally designated instead by the noun honnestete.
