Example text

6 These forces are held at bay with only the most strenuous efforts, which the myth tells us are doomed to failure. We might, therefore, begin our exploration of the archaeology of the Racinian universe with the rather banal assertion that on at least one level the underlying fear that this dramatic universe plays out for us, the anxiety that it both hides and reveals, is the dread that “culture” and “civilization,” however those terms are defined, are but a fragile construction that can at any moment be undone by more nefarious, uncontrollable forces.

Rather than a stable bulwark, the boundary separating the one from the other is permeable, artificial, and incessantly changing. It is this porosity that constantly threatens to collapse these very same boundaries and send the state back into the chaos from which it emerged. In La Thébaïde the state and the (royal) family that incarnates it are continuously shown to be incongruent with each other—the former always the victim of the irrational behavior of the members of its regal household. 6 These forces are held at bay with only the most strenuous efforts, which the myth tells us are doomed to failure.

It is this play of forces that determines sexuality in the Racinian universe. The essential natural (that is, biological) difference between the sexes so firmly enunciated in the Corneillean canon (even if it is also put into question) is no longer operative in Racine’s world. In Corneille, difference (the dramatic conflict) is imposed from without; the hero’s dilemma is conventionally an impossible choice between his sexual desire and the right political or social choice that is antithetical to this desire: this dilemma is, however, presented as exterior to desire.
