Time and Gender in Early Modern France investigates the concept of time in the works of Ronsard and of five woman poets, four of them grouped in pairs -- Pernette du Guillet and Louise Labe, Anne de Marquets and Nicole Estienne -- while Catherine des Roches's works are the subject of an entire chapter.
In chapter 3, Pernette du Guillet and Louise Labe are shown to reformulate the relationship between virtue and time, each proposing "a time of her own" (90).
(8.) Louise Labe, for example, has been the focus of three monographs since 1996: Deborah Lesko Baker, The Subject of Desire.
Of course, Labe's mourning is erotic longing precipitated by her lover's absence, which makes it categorically different from complaintes such as "Helas, faut-il." Nonetheless, the similarities between Labe's elegies and the laments voiced in the complaintes are striking.
Also see the epitaph Louise Labe includes at the end of her second elegy: "Par toi, ami, tant vequis enflammee qu'en languissant par feu suis consumee qui couve encor sous ma cendre embrasde, si ne la rends de tes pleurs apaisee" [104].
Rilke places Louise Labe, whose sonnets he translated, (2) in his pantheon of great lovers, women whose love surpasses the loved one, who refuse to let the loved one become their limited objective, a substitute for the beyond to which they aspire.
(5) In this same year, 1911, between the Aufzeichnungen and the letter to Kolb, Rilke probably translated Labe's 'Tout aussi tot ...'.
