Hrotsvitha's Vision : A Two - Minute Monologue e-bokEngelsk, 2018

Beskrivelse

Hrotsvitha's prayers are interrupted by a vision of a woman, Christopher Marie St. John, who is translating her dramas a thousand years into the future. In the vision, Hrotsvitha becomes aware that St. John has become demoralized and has stopped working. Her original manuscript was destroyed by fire during the Easter Rising in Dublin. Hrotsvitha becomes very angry and lectures her future translator about how men use war to distract women and keep us from seeing our power. She reveals the great secret for liberation embedded in all of her plays. Acknowledging the danger of propagating this work, she still exorts St. John to pick up her quill and start over.
