This paper aims to explore how Sylvia Plath’s poems describe the domestic space, particularly, the kitchen as a metaphor for the Cold War paranoia. Using Marsha Bryant’s term, “the domestic surreal,” it looks into how Plath builds a complex and nuanced poetics of domesticity. Without depicting it as a married woman’s desire for private space, Plath intertwines the domesticity with the Cold War politics and anchors her writing style in a woman’s experiences. For instance, she reveals the Cold War paradox of domestic security by reversing marriage vows for safety into anxieties over her married life. She also blurs the distinction between the public and the private worlds and argues that the home represents as much a place for masks as a theatre of public life. In doing so, Plath overlaps the private space of home over the public sphere of Cold War geopolitics. Staying domestic, literally and poetically, in a woman’s place, and satirically asking for the home to be a place for a woman to locate her authentic selfhood, Plath puts out a strong public critique of the logic of American Cold War. Indeed, Plath is a ‘domestic’ poet who spoke up a woman’s voice of social engagement in the precarious period of war.

This paper tries to examine how Susan Howe develops a radical critique of history in her experimental language by analyzing “Thorow,” one of her longer poems. Technically, she often seems to be more focused on sound and form than on meaning, and, for the visual effect, deliberately pastes scissored phrases and lines on the page, which makes her stand high in estimation among contemporary avant-garde poets. She crosses genres and disciplines, and sometimes scatters, overlaps, even inverts, the words, phrases, or sentences from different sources. Her work is multi-layered and allusive owing to its heavy dependence on various texts from early American history and primary documents. In addition, her poetry gets much harder to read when its fragmented language ignores the standard of orthography and ypography. Howe’s technical experiment is thematically connected with her approach to history and reality. She considers history as a winner’s record, and reality as its residue, and, by way of “Thorow”[thorough] re-reading of history, seeks to reach an open field where plural voices, especially those forgotten or erased, are newly heard. “Thorow” is an exploration into an “unappropriated land,” not mediated or governed by an authoritarian voice, and also an investigation into such linguistic conditions as to make it possible.

This paper aims to clarify Sylvia Plath’s anti-metaphysical poetic imagination developing in her earlier epistemology of solipsism and persisting throughout her oeuvre. I have attempted an intensive analysis of some of her earlier poems and journals, drawing critical approaches from Jacques Derrida’s deconstruction of Western logocentric metaphysics and the feminist critiques of phallocentrism elaborated by Luce Iragaray, and Helene Cixous and Catherine Clement. The second section of this paper elucidates Plath’s solipsism deconstructing the logocentrism of Christian metaphysics and revealing the radical “differance”-in Derrida’s term-inherent in such concepts as God, angels and heaven and hell. The third section moves to the argument that Plath’s deconstructive imagination advances farther to create a new locus for the female body by reclaiming the “‘elsewhere’ of female pleasure” in Luce Irigaray’s term. And the final fourth section concludes by finding the importance of Plath’s anti-metaphysical vision as it spans consistently over her whole career as a poet.

Admittedly T. S. Eliot’s “Rhapsody on a Windy Night” was primarily inspired by Henri Bergson``s Matter and Memory. Unlike this argument, however, this paper aims to review this poem not only centering upon Matter and Memory, but also embracing his other major philosophical works, Time and Free Will, Creative Evolution, and Laughter. In the light of the fact that Eliot took Bergson’s lectures on his major philosophical works in College de France, I believe that Matter and Memory alone does not fully account for the whole meaning of this poem. This paper thus delves into how Eliot projected Bergsonism into the contrast between inauthenticity of anonymous people and authenticity of individuals pursuing an artistic life in pure duration, and thereby how he questioned the dilemma of modern men intertwined with the conflict between body and spirit and between matter and memory in the contemporary society. Pitting an automatic, responsive, and imitative life against an original, artistic, and creative life, Eliot reveals his deep despair toward the spiritless life of modern men who do not know the real value of freedom.

Georgia Douglas Johnson is a best-known Black woman poet during the 1920s’ Harlem Renaissance. Cosmopolitan cities such as Harlem, NY and Washington D. C. provided black women writers with new opportunities for speaking up their creative voices in the New Negro Movement. They took an active part in progressing New Negro images and fostered their evolving sense of modern womanhood, inspiring others to challenge the social ideas of African American feminity. This study introduces Georgia Douglas Johnson’s poetic commitment to representing African-American women’s sexuality a fresh and authentic mode. In her poems black woman speakers make a bold insistence on black woman’s creative identity and reveal a modern sensibility that would emerge more fully in the course of Harlem Renaissance. Even though Jonson didn’t raise her voices directly in the protest against racial prejudices, she tried to combat the dehumanized images of black female femininity. As one of representative New Negro woman poets, Johnson made an important contribution to revising the stifling images of black women of the 1920s.

P. B. Shelley mentioned the difficulty of translating poetry, saying that translation is “the burthen of the curse of Babel.” Robert Frost also stated the impossibility: “Poetry is what gets lost in translation.” Is it really impossible to translate poetry This article refutes the nagative statement of the untranslatability of poetry, by showing that poetry is not lost but gained in translation. It seeks to address the issues of translating poetry and the relationship between poetry and translation, and then discuss the significance of‘creative translation’, which does not exist as a copy of the original but as a creative writing as new and poetic as the original. Importantly, this essay has a close look at Pi Chyun-Deuk’s translation of Shakespeare’s sonnet 29 into Korean as an example of the creative translation, where the sonnet is reborn as a new Korean poem. In this creative process, the distinction between writing and translating becomes blurred.

Thomas Hardy`s Re-configuration of Time as a Circle in Poems of 1912-13

Thomas Hardy’s first wife, Emma, inspired him the most when she died unexpectedly in November 1912. Through the sequence of elegies entitled Poems of 1912-13, the poet aligns himself with the historic lineage of elegists by inheriting their legacies and at the same time revises its generic conventions to secure his originality. Reading the sequence mainly through textual analysis and also by means of the author’s biography, this paper aims to illuminate how Hardy mourns the dead without relying too much on transcendental entities, those often used in the conventional elegies. Most importantly, it examines how the poet re-imagines the generic conception of elegiac time. Instead of overlapping the cyclical time of nature and the linearity of human life, Hardy blurs the boundaries of the sequential time frame. With this strategy, he creates a more unified perception of time as a kind of circle, which ultimately consolidates both his identities as a natural man and a poet. Reading these elegies while paying close attention to his project to rewrite the elegiac concept of time would reconfirm Hardy as the harbinger of the modern elegy. This, in turn, will enable the reader to turn their eyes towards the dynamic transformation of one of the most enduring genres of English poetry.
