Composing the Citizen

This chapter discusses how the French connected with identity through their music, while using the perspective of race, gender, and class. It first looks at how race helped distinguish the Self from the Other and understand if there was anything coherent in the nation. It then examines identity using female allegories, which were presented in the works from the 1870s, and lists the reasons why these were reconsidered. The chapter also studies other ways of thinking about identity during the late nineteenth century and reevaluates the social function of art.

Keywords:   identity, race, gender, class, female allegories, social function
