Synopsis

Using feminist, psychoanalytic, and deconstructionist approaches to Torquato Tasso's 1581 "Gerusalemme Liberata" ("Jerusalem Delivered"), this work argues that Tasso explored alternate modes of writing and reading by reflecting on the genealogical tales of his non-Christian women characters Clorinda, Erminia, and Armida. Through these characters, Tasso explores a series of questions about their relation to the father. By examining the interpretive and ethical questions that arise from the problematic genealogies of Tasso's orphan daughters, the reader should arrive at a better understanding of the relation between the poem's dominant ideology and the stories that it seeks to suspend and displace.
