L. a. déchirure Française
Mensuel n°560 daté octobre 2015
DOSSIER. Lumières contre anti-lumières, los angeles déchirure française. Alors que los angeles contrast entre l. a. gauche et los angeles droite devient diffuse, los angeles France s’est aujourd’hui choisi un nouveau clivage : los angeles «pensée unique» contre les «réacs», les «élites» et le «populisme». À y regarder de plus près, c’est une nouvelle fois l’héritage des Lumières, ses interprétations concurrentes ou son rejet, qui est en jeu. En partant des joutes politiques et intellectuelles contemporaines (notamment cristallisées par le nouvel essai d’Alain Finkielkraut), ce file met en point of view une guerre des Lumières qui a cours depuis le XVIIIe siècle et ne s’est jamais éteinte: entre Lumières et anti-Lumières, mais aussi entre Lumières divergentes, le conflit est originel en France, non sans paradoxes. Lumières «modérées» ou «radicales», révolutionnaires et contre-révolutionnaires, rationalistes et mystiques… Leur position sur l’échiquier intellectuel est parfois surprenante. Un file coordonné par Pierre-Yves Beaurepaire et Marc Weitzmann

Sample text

As already discussed, critics including Gillian Beer, George Levine, and Lawrence Rothfield have deconstructed the vocabularies and imaginative paradigms that Eliot’s knowledge of science lent to Middlemarch. The complexity of these literary examinations pays off with Middlemarch, but has inspired critical investigations of novels like Deerbrook that reflect a lesser command of scientific theory. As I have argued above, medical and scientific insights do not disclose the innovation that Hope represents in Deerbrook and that Martineau offers to domestic realism more generally.

Bravely and not insincerely, Maria considers her “peremptory vocation” a “blessing,” disguised though it may be by loneliness and neglect (35). Like Hope, whose education and civic-mindedness make him superior to the other villagers of his station, Maria lacks companionship worthy of her intellect until Margaret moves to Deerbrook. And yet, Margaret’s eventual marriage to Enderby, and Maria’s consequent and dual alienation from her former fiancé and her closest friend, interrupts the orderly closure represented by Margaret and Enderby’s muchdelayed engagement and marriage.

In these texts, aggressive and sometimes fatal medical interventions operate as necessary punishments for errant womanhood, as New Women challenge the traditional boundaries of marriage. We see this trope structurally in these texts’ variations on the marriage plot, which as a literary organization has deteriorated from this period’s gendered struggle for moral and biophysical control, as is testified by the independent New Women and the doctors who discipline them. The familiar portrayal of late-century doctors as heartless experimentalists or science experts dissociated from the moral principles of society is complicated by an historical phenomena that fictional authors find difficult to reconcile with the role of the doctor.
