...Scudder published two books about Saint Catherine of Siena, the very public and politically active fourteenth-century nun. Saint Catherine of Siena as Seen in Her Letters ( 1905 ) is an edition of Catherine’s correspondence, while The Disciple of a Saint ( 1907 ) is a fictionalized account of the “family” which surrounded and supported Catherine in her endeavors.

Whereas Catherine counseled Popes, served as ambassador...

In particular, Wagner’s Parsifal exemplifies the transition from a Kantian autonomous view of the subject to a Lacanian subject characterized by its nonessentiality, by a gap that is covered up by the same movement that opens it. Catherine Clément argues that the pleasure in canonic operatic plot derives from the perpetual undoing of its heroines.
