A garçonne: de Paris a ‘‘Lesboa’’
Keywords:homossexualidade em Portugal, Ofélia Marques, Maria Adelaide Lima Cruz, lesbianismo, estudos queer
In the first decades of the 19th century, French authors modeled the prototype of the Parisienne, a truly fascinating woman who, in turn, became “a modern myth”. After the First World War, the parisienne ended up being confused with the figure of La Garçonne in the path of the eponymous novel by Victor Margueritte. La Garçonne is, in a way, the crystallization and literary transposition of the new woman that emerged in the Roaring Twenties. But, by inverting the male and female codes through the use of clothes or props supposedly of the other sex, the Garçonnes come to be considered as “inverted”, as happens in their literary and artistic representation. It is this same artistic representation that this article focuses on, namely in the production of Maria Adelaide Lima Cruz and Ofélia Marques.
