Abstract

BORGES, Vavy Pacheco. A woman and her emotions: the diary of Eugénie Leuzinger Masset (1885-1889). Cad. Pagu [online]. 2002, n.19, pp.113-143. ISSN 1809-4449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-83332002000200006.

After a breef discussion on diary as a practice, the article discribes the diary of a 19th century woman, analysing it as symptom of/ remedy for her distress after her husband's death. Her origin, education, culture and religion are shown in the diary. This narrative shows the conflicts caused by her economic problems - heading her to enter public and professional life, for the maintenance of her children - and the feeling of lonliness after a wonderful love relationship.

Keywords : Diary; Women; Image; Emotions; XIXth Century.
