Gates of freedom Voltairine de Cleyre and the revolution of the mind : with selections from her writing by Eugenia C DeLamotte ( )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The question of souls is old; we demand our bodies, now. These words are not from a feminist manifesto of the late twentieth century, but from a fiery speech given a hundred years earlier by Voltairine de Cleyre, a leading anarchist and radical thinker. A contemporary of Emma Goldman--who called her "the most gifted and brilliant anarchist woman America ever produced"--de Cleyre was a significant force in a major social movement that sought to transform American society and culture at its root. But she belongs to a group of late-nineteenth-century freethinkers, anarchists, and sex-radicals whose writing continues to be excluded from the U.S. literary and historical canon. Gates of Freedom considers de Cleyre's speeches, letters, and essays, including her most well known essay, "Sex Slavery." Part I brings current critical concerns to bear on de Cleyre's writings, exploring her contributions to the anarchist movement, her analyses of justice and violence, and her views on women, sexuality, and the body. Eugenia DeLamotte demonstrates both de Cleyre's literary significance and the importance of her work to feminist theory, women's studies, literary and cultural studies, U.S. history, and contemporary social and cultural analysis. Part II presents a thematically organized selection of de Cleyre's stirring writings, making Gates of Freedom appealing to scholars, students, and anyone interested in Voltairine de Cleyre's fascinating life and rousing work. Eugenia C. DeLamotte is Associate Professor of English, Arizona State University

Dès la fin de la guerre de Sécession, les États-Unis s'affirment comme l'une des puissances clés du monde industriel et capitaliste émergeant. Incarnation du " rêve " d'un monde meilleur pour ses nombreux immigrants, le pays se construit à travers les crises sociales, identitaires et politiques qui traversent l'ensemble du monde occidental. Revenir sur cette époque à travers les écrits de Voltairine de Cleyre (1866-1912) et d'Emma Goldman (1869-1940), militantes anarchistes, permet de mettre en perspective certaines de nos problématiques actuelles. 0Les textes, pour la plupart inédits en français, ont été écrits au long d'un demi-siècle crucial, entre 1880 et 1940. Ils disent l'articulation entre la critique franche de la société moderne et la redéfinition du statut des femmes. De quoi est-il question ? De sexualités, de prostitution, de mariage, de contrôle des naissances, d'amour, de jalousie, de propriété, de liberté, d'éducation, de leurre idéologique, notamment... de dissidence et de liberté surtout
