not even France was prepared to Colette, or was not of the century. Today the playwright Angélica Liddell teaches the vagina on the stage and, seemingly, nothing happens. But make a mental journey to the beginning of the TWENTIETH century and think of a woman simulating the sexual act to the fore of the conventions. If only it were this. Before you teach your breasts in public, even before married three times, and before interacting with women, Sidonie Gabrielle-Colette (1873-1954) had written several novels with the nickname of Willy, who was no other than her first husband, Henry Gauthier-Villars, and they married very young.
Starts as Colette, 1900 with a series of novels, Claudine, that narrate the adventure, of course, of becoming a woman. The look of today this may be naif, but Colette was the opposite. Introduced in the literature some of the experiences of women, common and ordinary if you will, that never until then had had no place. There was in her a commitment from the beginning: to show everything that could be faced by women educated in the tradition, and give space to the literary to the voluptuousness of the female, to his desire for pleasure.
But not only was there a purpose in Colette, and this point was understood by France in the long run -was the first woman admitted into the Academy Goncourt-: it was above all literary quality, and an absolute knowledge of the cadence and beauty of words. He did something more: he described with power and wisdom, the yearning for all -not just women - to be loved, but also the anxiety that causes the love, the anguish of loneliness and the feeling of abandonment that sometimes -if not always - carries the ranting sentimental. If anything you should thank Colette is his courage. Going a extract of his Song danzarina: "Naked in your arms, you attach to your bed through the belt of fire of the pleasure, you called me, however, danzarina, to see stir under my skin, from my chest offered to my feet contorted, the inevitable voluptuousness".
Colette is an arcane whose study it is unattainable to the majority of our contemporaries"
Natural is that, to day of today, the film addresses the whereabouts of this woman, because in truth seem to the of a feminist that grows between the TWENTIETH century and the TWENTY-first century. That is the milestone: she did it 100 years before and it does not matter if yours is literature a female, women or a feminist. The three aspects have had a permanent critical throughout the history of literature: to be written from one's own life but, who would dare now to say that the life of Colette was not interesting?
if missing data: Colette learned to read, taught by her mother -reader inveterate - before the age of three years, and it started with the favourite authors of her mother: Eugène Labiche, Alphonse Daudet and Victor Hugo, though, since the age of seven, according to, his favorite author was Balzac. Had with Marcel Proust an intense correspondence and she said the poet Guillaume Apollinaire -in The literature of women, of 1909 - "Colette is an arcane whose study it is unattainable to the majority of our contemporaries. Are beauties of the first order which are no more than poignant chills of the flesh."
