Example text

The gentlemanly self is not predicated upon an inner essence which unfolds in the course of time, but can be moulded and ‘made’. The rhetoric and techniques of the self implied in this notion of se facere are most obvious in the quest for temperance in The Faerie Queene. 18 This often-quoted statement contains in nuce the central parameters of subjectivity as advocated by Spenser and textualized in the poem: the notion of ‘(self-)fashion[ing]’ that has been so brilliantly examined by Stephen Greenblatt,19 the social status of the subject so framed, and, more obliquely, also his gender: a ‘gentleman or noble person’, the ethical dimension of the enterprise, which is to teach how to become ‘vertuous and gentle’, and finally the notion of practice which inheres in the idea of ‘discipline’.

Here, at a very early date, ‘madnesse’ is cast in opposition to reason, which turns men from ‘foolish’ nature to culture: ‘We should be children still all the time of our riper yeares & in our extreame age: and waxe as very fooles with gray hoary heads, as when we were very babes: if it were not that reason, which increaseth in vs with our yeares, subdueth affections in vs, and growen to perfection, transformeth vs from beastes in to men’ (G99/100). Grotesque imagery here not only renders the ‘exterritorialized’ parts as bestial, to be subjected to the government of reason; it also represents the gentleman as emerging from the matrix of the animal world which not only contains his body, this materiality which he shares with nature, but also women and the lower classes.

In this final comment, Guyon’s act of destruction is represented as laying the foundations of a civilization that will re-establish the godlikeness of the first creation. 2 Imagined Individuals: A Body of One’s Own In contrast to post-Cartesian notions of selfhood, the early modern subject was effected by discourses and power structures beyond itself. He or she emerged from within a framework of domination, loyalty, and courtly dependence, and was interpellated, or brought forth, by various historically and culturally contingent discourses.
