Summary
"In a book that describes how men and women, young and adult, sang or recited in public settings, Stehle looks at poetry as an occasion for the performer's self-presentation. By discussing a wide range of pre-Hellenistic poetry, including Sappho's, and comparing how men and women speak about themselves, she constructs an innovative approach to performance that illuminates gender ideology." "After considering the audience and the function of different modes of performance - community, bardic, and participation in closed groups - Stehle explores this poetry as gendered speech, which interacts with performers' bodily presence to create social identities for the speakers. Texts for female choral performers reveal how women in public spoke in order to disavow the power of their speech and their sexual power. Male performers, however, could manipulate gender as an ideological system: they sometimes claimed female identity in addition to male, associated themselves with triumph over a defeated (mythical) female figure, or asserted their disconnection from women, thereby creating idealized social identities for themselves. A final chapter concentrates on the written poetry of Sappho, which borrows the communicative strategy of writing in order to create a fictional speaker distinct from the singer, a "Sappho" whom others could recreate in imagination. Sappho's poetry subverts gendered speech by exploiting the hermeneutic difference between embodied spoken communication and writing."--Jacket
