This book, the second of two volumes, explores and analyzes the dramatic representations of women in power in seventeenth-century France. Key to the analysis is an examination of the ways in which questions of virtue and sexual differentiation are negotiated and how they contribute to the construction of a nascent paradigm of equality.
