Whether wife, lover, daughter, or slave, each of the women lacks the power to resist the commodification of her body on the erotic market. The women cannot wound those who have wronged them, so they wound their bodies instead.
This reference frames the writing of the letter and is almost certainly original to Montalvo. Oriana cannot avenge her honor with the sword, so she does so with a pen. The episode, however, contains a fundamental paradox. For J.
The letter reflects the ambiguity and mutability of Oriana herself. However, as a daughter-heir and not just a queen consort like Guinevere or Iseut, Oriana also wields political influence; in Book III, a civil revolt will coalesce around her in order to support her claim to the throne 2: — Montalvo introduces the letter in the context of its composition, telling the reader that Oriana sent her damsels away to write her missive in solitude 1: The representation of literacy and letter writing as private rather than public pursuits points to the early modern context for the episode; in the Arthurian world, all acts of literacy are public.
Montalvo follows the material presentation of the letter with a citation of its content and then allows his readers to track the communication as it moves through space. The letter, and by extension its writer, possesses a power analogous to that of the archetypical chivalric tool of war.
The seal is also a symbol of royal authority. Dynasty, lineage, and succession, and by consequence legal marriage, appear to matter more to the princess than to the prince. Michael Harney reads both liaisons as marriages Kinship In my view, both pairs of lovers fail to meet the conditions for a secret marriage. Marriages, whether before or after the Council of Trent, require specific intent to marry from both parties; what the maid wants is irrelevant.

Many rings are exchanged in romances of chivalry, and they serve many purposes —identification, magic, or the sign of a promise or pledge. A proposal of marriage is not the marriage in itself, and neither is consensual sex the same thing as legal marriage. Moreover, her life could be in very real peril: her country burns women for sexual misconduct. Kentigern and the blessed Barra. Matulka finds evidence for both banishment and burning as punishments for adultery in Spain Matulka 55— Isabel had to defy her brother Enrique to marry the monarch next door; Oriana must defy her father to do the same.
Instead of collapsing sovereignty onto a single male heir, Montalvo replicates the ideal of the reigning couple in a second generation. Lancelot negotiates a set of similar tests at la Douloureuse Garde.
I read the island as a utopia in that it is not a place at all, but rather the fantastic, mythological no place from which political power derives its symbolic authority. The arches, castles, statues, and symbols are clockwork devices of the heraldic variety, and their tests are not just those of love and war but of sovereignty.
If Montalvo is not going to allow them the tragic deaths of the Arthurian model, he has to assert their inheritance rights over those of their siblings. Montalvo might have chosen to represent Oriana as a submissive consort, but in the Sergas she is, like the historical Isabel, both a ruler in her own right and an equal partner to her king.
