Abstract

Female tragedy, as a part of patriarchal discourse, is not only the existence of an exit for female to release their muffled desires, but also a structural existence. Behind the female tragedy lies the construction of human by discourse. By creating the existence of others to cover the vacancy in real world, the subject in the discourse structure was willing to accept the reconstruction of discourse, and becomes the puppet of others. This thesis took Madame Bovary for instance and analyzed male role functions in patriarchal female tragedy, which pointed out that the male role was both the agent and scapegoat of patriarchy in female tragedy.
