Abstract [en]

In the 16th century a revolution took place for women poets in Italy and Gaspara Stampa (1523-1554) was one of the strongest voices of the period. She is not only a woman writing within a literary code created by and for men, Petrarchism – she writes her poetry with confidence, takes tone and makes a woman’s voice heard where it traditionally does not exist. She goes against ideals and creates female speaking and loving subject At the same time, she makes man her muse and silent object of her praise. And where the tradition divides love in high and low, heavenly and earthbound, Stampa seeks union of body and soul, a union of the two lovers, because without love life is not even worth living.

Abstract [fr]

Au XVIe siècle a lieu une révolution pour les femmes poètes en Italie et Gaspara Stampa (1523-1554) est l’une des voix les plus fortes de cette période. En plus d’être une femme écrivant au sein d’un code littéraire créé par et pour les hommes – le pétrarquisme – sa poésie est empreinte de confiance, elle fait résonner la voix d’une femme où il n’en existe traditionnellement pas. Elle s’oppose aux idéaux et donne la parole à un sujet féminin plein d’amour. Dans le même temps, elle fait de l’homme sa muse et l’objet silencieux de ses louanges. Là où la tradition divise l’amour entre le haut et le bas, le céleste et le terrestre, Stampa cherche l’union du corps et de l’âme, ainsi que celle des deux amants, puisque sans amour la vie ne vaut pas la peine d’être vécue.
