Three Tales of Ageing

This paper tries to unravel the relationship between ageing and sensuality. It discusses the nature of the experience of female ageing sketched out in three books: one, a feminist text that sees menopause as autobiographical, not clinical or pathological; the second, a novel about the agony of an ageing woman who is not sure if she ought to really fall in love; and the third, a study of structures and forms of domination in relation to physical torture.
