I need some assistance with these assignment. masquerade hysteria and neocolonial femininity in jessica hagedorns dogeaters Thank you in advance for the help! Building the nation during the post-colonial period the Philippines becomes a search for retaining a lost manliness for the native men of power. Hagedorns feminism introduces a position in the text for a terse analysis of the anti-woman propensity inheriting in chauvinism. The female characters in Filipino postcolonial community depicted by Hagedorn exemplify the patriarchal negation and amalgamate the dichotomized models of romanticizing femininity and dishonored whoredom. In the novel, Zenaida is depicted as the mother of a prostitute, and a prostitute of a mother. Hagedorn here is trying to disembody her as the symbol of nonstandard, adulterated femininity. The writer has presented the personal as the political. The sexual relationships between men and women carry a political connotation, therefore making the hysteria in the power equations of the genders, within and outside the organization of marriage in Dogeaters, a national disquiet. Then there is the woman issue fore-grounded in the novel which is relevant to a postcolonial text (Chang 637-63). Hagedorn has selected to have about a dozen tales in the text with women as lead characters display her investment in this question. Patriarchy is involved in the responsibility of restructuring its machismo identify after the weakening attack of colonialism, women become expunged from the political progress itself. The only means women can experience a delusion of emancipation is by complicity with patriarchy, as in the case of the Generals wife, and the First Lady. Conversely, female characters like the presidents wife and the talk-show host build and signify manifestation in the service of the nation. The First Lady has the propensity of explaining women enthusiasm to participate in beauty contests as a gesticulation of nationalist fortitude and in effect conspires in the substitution of the imperialist glance.
