엘리자베스 비숍의 시: “치환의 기술”은 “하나의 예술”

Elizabeth Bishop`s “art of displacement” has been viewed as one of her most “pervasive and persistent” strategies throughout her career. It functions as a set of rhetorical techniques to make her poems intricate and multi-layered art; and at the same time as a more personal mechanism to conceal and transform her private life stories, insecure gender, love and loss into “one art.” Thus in analyzing “Sleeping on the Ceiling,” “Sleeping Standing Up,” “Exchanging Hats,” “The Gentleman of Shalott,” and “Crusoe in England,” this paper examines Bishop`s compelling artistic strategy and its subtle and complex implications. The first half of this paper pursues how the art of displacement, particularly the inversion of order and degrees, and the conversion of gender role-play are employed. The second half, arguing how the art of displacement, especially Bishop`s “re-seeing” Tennyson`s “The Lady of Shalott” and Defoe`s Robinson Crusoe, constitutes a methodology toward creative production.

「축혼가」를 통해서 본 홉킨스의 성(sexuality)과 빅토리아시대 소년기

This paper analyzes Hopkins`s sexuality in “Epithalamion,” a wedding song, in the context of the Victorian discourse of boyhood. The main imagery in this text, presents a man, secretly watching naked, bathing boys, and those boys, innocently enjoying their bathing. Not appropriate for a celebration of conjugal love, this poem has often been regarded as revealing his repressed homosexual or even pedophilic desires. Hopkins makes no poetic attempt to blur the boundary between his world and that of the boys while invoking nostalgia in his portrayals of healthy boys in “Epithalamion.” Firmly ingrained in Victorian ideas of boyish innocence and health, he presents a text in which boys are understood as active, courageous, and good at sports. In this context, this paper argues that Hopkins`s voyeurism revealed in his poems is not a mark of scandalous desire for boys, but an acceptable Victorian view of boyhood.

E. E. 커밍스의 생태적 마음-`되기`와 `성장하기`

김은성 ( Eunseong Kim )

This paper examines E. E. Cummings` ecological mind, with which he praises the values of individuality, spontaneity, immediacy, and simplicity in nature. Observing and enjoying nature, he finds all dichotomies dissolving into a dynamic and organic whole in which nature and the poet`s mind, distinct and yet interfused, transform each other in a growing process. Cummings` ecological poetic consciousness, thus, offers an open-ended field where all exist, following the natural law of `becoming` and `growing.` Through his ecological way of existence the poet transgresses all boundaries and continues to incorporate a suit of opposites in his texts. It can be asserted that Cummings` ecological mind leads readers to a greater sense of selfhood, and that this ultimately reflects social engagement.

전기적 고찰을 통한 『생일편지』(Birthday Letters) 읽기

신원철 ( Wonchul Shin )

This paper examines Ted Hughes`s last collection, Birthday Letters, which is read here as displaying a different portrait of his relationship with Sylvia Plath. It is generally known that Plath suffered emotional torment during her complicated married life, largely because of Hughes` philandering. But in Birthday Letters Hughes frankly records his fond memories of her and their troubled relationship, and this collection can be read as a source which sheds new light on the marriage of two poets. Doubtless, it was Hughes` behaviors that caused the break-down of this relationship, but it can also be speculated that Plath was either too sensitive or too ambitious for her literary career to be content with being a famous poet`s wife. After all, Birthday Letters makes a frank confession of a guilty husband and at the same time constitutes a fine collection of poems that bear the signature of two competing poetic souls.

문장과 문장 사이: 론 실리먼의 『찬팅』

양균원 ( Kyoonwon Yang )

This paper is an effort to find a better way of reading Ron Silliman`s experimental language by analyzing what he considers as characteristic of “the new sentence” in The New Sentence and by examining how these characteristics are deployed in his prose poem Tjanting. The new sentences seem to be fragmented or separated while following a “secondary syllogistic movement” toward the work as a whole. The movement is deliberately torqued to hinder any “logic or argument” and make the reader finely attuned to language. The new sentence is “the first prose technique” to resist “the tyranny of the signified” and include “both below the horizon of the sentence and above.” Tjanting contains a variety of motifs whose repetitions and variations achieve only a minimal narrative structure. The same or similar expressions and their wordplay are scattered among heterogeneous sentences across the book, though ultimately work toward arousing an impression of a unified whole. These repetitions and motifs are a strategic way by which Language poets come to pursue a formless form while enjoying endless openness and expansion.

통제된 공포: T. S. 엘리엇의 『황무지』와 히스테리 담론

This paper, perceiving the different voices and fragmented language in Eliot`s The Waste Land as a rupture into a hysterical mode, examines how Eliot taps the power of words to protect himself from an existential void or horror of death. Focusing on the writing cure that Wayne Koestenbaum suggests in his reading by aligning Eliot`s alleged homosexuality with his compositional innovations, this paper argues that Eliot shows how writing enables the subject to confront trauma. Eliot`s mysogynistic descriptions of females in The Waste Land imply his struggle with his own sexual feelings, which is fundamentally homoerotic. The text of the poem, then, becomes the site for an unconscious struggle, in which hysterical discontinuities and liminal gender is asserted. This paper finally suggests that Eliot is in Kristevan terms a writing subject, who can be interpreted symbolically as a phobic, successful in protecting himself from the unnameable void by using metaphor.

W. B. Yeats and the Easter Rising: Liberty and the Communal Spirit in “Easter, 1916”

( Joonseog Ko )

초록보기
Yeats memorializes the sublime sacrifice of Irish people who died in the Easter Rising in resistance poems such as “Easter 1916” and “Sixteen Dead Men.” He shows why they turned into “a terrible beauty” through sacrificing their lives for the communal cause and admires their heroic actions undertaking in support of the push for Irish independence. As Rousseau and Said have proclaimed, the individual use of liberty corresponds to the altruistic use of liberty for all Irish people living under British colonial rule. In the mist of a conflict to estimate the value of the Easter Rising and the death of sixteen Irish men, Yeats illuminates how their altruistic sacrifice was for the community and the independence of Ireland and elevates their sacrifice as a martyrs` altruistic struggle for the `ultimate liberty` to uphold human dignity and, therein, achieve a truly liberated community.

Writing Like a Father: Seamus Heaney`s Poetic Plowing In the Land of Ireland

( Chang-gyu Seong )

초록보기
This paper aims to examine Seamus Heaney`s poetic use of Irish topography in The Place of Writing. He carries a disinterested investigation, initially, of the land of Northern Ireland but soon expands his imagination to include an abstract community of international poets, writing in each separate territory. His continuous consideration of a poet`s place and his historical place generates a dialogue between the aim of art and its claims of history and between an artist`s growing consciousness and his persistent historical conscience. He makes subtle revelations of such contrary feelings as distant memories of his country and violent anger against historical events he had experienced in the childhood. He presents the topography of Northern Ireland not just in terms of an agricultural mass of land but a collective basin containing the vivid memories of the Irish people. It finally makes him stand in awe of everyday life as well as Irish tradition and history.
