This chapter explores personal and social factors in the development of trauma, the importance of mutual recognition and gender, and the relation to language and meaning. In Debussyés opera, it discusses language, developmental-social malattunement and trauma, fate and trauma, and an understanding of Mélisande based on a study of gender, trauma, and her social environment. Different perspectives are addressed in the pursuit of understanding Bartókés Bluebeard Opera, including the Bluebeard Ballad, its history, and cultural context. The relation of the librettist, Béla Balázs, to Bluebeard and Trauma is also scrutinized. The study of Bartok's opera is also based on historical and biographical notes. Consideration of a feminist view from a castle that is not, a re-evaluation of the Duke Bluebeard story within an autobiographical perspective, and a view from a door that was not, contributes to our reflections on modernity.

Keywords:   developmental-social malattunenient, fate, Bluebeard Ballad, librettist, feminist view autobiographical perspective, modernity
