The Silenced Body
In a society where the phenomenological value and history is validated through a patriarchal order, the female identity becomes neutralized and imposed upon the
constitution corresponding to its biased and specific conditions. Thus, the female body becomes the silenced body, the body unable of expression, deserted by it's embodiment, and silenced by the primacy of the male culture. In this essay I will discern the issues that negate and repress the female body of her self and identity.
I will use, for my discussion, the novels Mrs. Dalloway, by Virginia Woolf, and Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley. Thorough the use of these novels I will convey the opposed dualism that exists between the female and male gender, and the way in which the latter constitute the woman's body to complement his.
