Gray invests the youths with their own type of exemplary status, as "figural exemplars" (Kaul 77) of a poetic, idealized moral past, but they, like Eton, become only ventriloquized versions of the exemplary--weak, hazy gestures to a past formula that cannot be accessed as an adequate expression of the speaker's history.
The loose narrative starring Lee develops throughout the film, but only as it is consistently interrupted by a host of other sequences: The visual language of advertising is ventriloquized as women try on shoes in a shop, accompanied by a cover of the Jackson 5's "I'll Be There"; a long excerpt from Pedro Lazaga's El frente infinito (The Endless Front, 1956), a Francoist film championing the imbrication of the Spanish state and the Catholic Church, is presented without commentary; Lee steps out of character to sing and recite Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven"; clips of classic slapstick appear; and scenes of industrial chicken slaughter are incongruously set to another cover, this time of Burt Bacharach's "Close to You.

Or is it more correctly understood as a ventriloquized voice, one either mimicked or projected by the adults around her, by the purveyors of street legend, by the justices of the court, or by a citizenry that fantasizes about speaking on behalf of the innocents--and that wishes to do so only after the children's class status is deemed worthy of a voice?

Ventriloquized via Alice Longworth, Mallon's crack about Boston-born Richardson's "maddening double-slur of alcohol and lockjaw" brought back my own fascinated glimpse as a McLean, Virginia, teenager of our disheveled-looking secretary of health, education, and welfare--or was he attorney general by then?

En este ultimo se detiene en la formacion de la mujer republicana, surgida dentro de los limites auspiciados por el patriarcado revolucionario, un tema que ha llevado a privilegiar los problemas de genero que lo atraviesan, teniendo en cuenta muchas veces la pertinencia de los planteos de Michael Danahy en La feminizacion de la novela (1991) y de Janet Beizer en Ventriloquized Bodies (1993) sobre la vision estereotipada del folletin y de la novela sentimental, ligadas a una lectura eminentemente femenina, que interpretan como una proyeccion de las atribuciones acerca de la division entre espacio privado y publico, cuyos vinculos y proyecciones se concretan en el proceso singular de las luchas de independencia y de las guerras civiles latinoamericanas.
