  • Abstract: In her “Dialogue de Sincero et de Charite,” Catherine des Roches creates an equally intelligent and lettered character in Charite, who embodies both erudition and erotic desire. A reading of the “corporal [af]filiation” between mother and daughter indeed reveals the symbiotic attachment of mother and daughter in both literary and social spheres. Yet a more refined version of Catherine’s self-fashioning can be glimpsed in her Missives. Catherine des Roches inscribes a dialogic body that is a new model for the humanist woman.
