Example text

Kalander, the wise elder statesman, here has the role of explaining simultaneously to the newcomers, Pyrocles and Musidorus, and to the reader the strange set of events that has led to the voluntary exile of Basilius, taking his wife and two daughters into the countryside of Arcadia. Kalander’s admiration for Gynecia is tinged with the sense that the same qualities that make Gynecia remarkable and admirable could lead to her downfall. That is, she is a woman of great wit, wise beyond her gender, and certainly superior to her husband.

We may know that Zelmane is Prince Pyrocles, that a match between these two is not only acceptable but desirable, appropriate in terms of gender and class, but this is a dimension not available to Philoclea but that attests to her disinterestedness. The integrity or sincerity of her emotions for Zelmane cannot include a materialistic account of how felicitous and advantageous this 42 Representing Women and Female Desire from Arcadia to Jane Eyre match would be because she simply does not know who Zelmane is.

As we shall go on to argue below, the main focus of the narrative is not on Basilius’s gender but on the office that he holds and his abrogation of the duties belonging to it. So Basilius can be read as suggesting some of the dimensions of Elizabeth’s position. Arcadia works with a series of equivalences that ‘figure forth’, as Sidney’s first biographer Fulke Greville wrote, particular ideas and issues, working through suggestion and shadowings rather than precise identifications. So the strength of the passages surrounding Philisides and the Iberian tournament in Arcadia establishes a connection, as Dennis Kay suggests, with Sidney and Elizabeth’s Accession Day tilts, and these textual events invite readers to understand Philisides as sometimes more successful than his historical counterpart.
