    Beschreibung "This thesis approaches the topic of feminine representation through comparative readings of two eighteenth-century Enlightenment tragedies, G. E. Lessing's Emilia Galotti (1772) and Charlotte von Stein's Dido (1794), as well as two twentieth-century Nazi films, Leni Riefenstahl's The Blue Light (1932) and Veit Harlan's Jew Süss (1940). In addition to the obvious diachronic dimension of this project, my framework for examination is thematically structured. Drawing on numerous theories and secondary sources, I will investigate these texts under three specific topics – namely, female sexuality, female sacrifice, and finally, the female corpse. All three chronologically represent the junctures of the rhetorical instrumentalization and abuse of the female body in these texts. In light of this, the thesis seeks to thus reveal not only the unexpected diachronic parallels between the texts and therefore between the Enlightenment and the Nazi period, but more importantly, it seeks to reinterrogate hitherto accepted readings of these texts vis-à-vis feminine representation."
