  • 00:05:00 In this YouTube video, Marguerite YouRCenar reads from her story "Aquiles O La Mentira" about a young man who is infected with a deadly disease, and how his mother dresses him as a woman to disguise him from the sickness. The young man remembers the only thing that he ever really regretted in his life-divinely sleeping with a man without taking proper precautions to make him into a god, and finding the rough features of his father's face, now dressed in a beautiful beauty that comes only from her, and that one day will make his death more painful. He is wrapped in silks in a million veils of gasa, entwined in gold collars, and Aquiles has entered into womanhood with him-to try and make a different kind of man out of him, in order to free the slaves. The man he belonged to, the owner of the slave race, was the opposite of a woman-asexual, and the father of a deity who, unlike men, was not limited by the laws of nature.

  • 00:15:00 In this video, Marguerite Yourcenar discusses the dark, internal world of women. She recalls the time she was listening to the life of Deng Amin escape from her throat, and the same water from her neck was feeling more distant than ever. That woman he had treated not only as a possession, but as a mere being, gradually became less and less approachable as he squeezed her neck tighter, the mystery of being a woman coming to add to the mystery of being a woman. His own hands, almost as cold as life, touched her shoulder as he got up in shock to hear his own daughter propose escape before the wrath of the father-king could entirely destroy him. He, too, would be doomed to remain in that sterile room, a thing without life, as his own princess dragged him down to the level of mere mortals.
