“Mother Angot gives you word that the United Fishermen can get the catch from the port right to your table, including all fish, oysters, lobsters, scallops and the like.” A savvy Frenchman would know Mother Angot is an archetype of the fishwife. Once a term of denigration, the “lewd, harsh truth” of fishwives’ speech became a signifier of a democratic, revolutionary spirit: “the raw eloquence of the street,” and “the real voice of the market.” Mère Angot became a recurring character in Ópera Comique plays; fishwives helped bring down the Bastille.
