This paper argues that Plath takes mythology as her topos and confronts stereotypical characters and notions in this mythology. Plath focuses on the marginalized female characters, especially for Medea and tries to subvert the stereotypes from the perspective of a modern female poet. In the so-called “Ariel Poems”, her later ones, Plath focuses on her female self who is confined in the traditional feminine sphere of submission to men like Ariel trapped in the tree. This conflict derives from the patriarchal society in which Plath feels the strain of a double bind, as a woman and poet. Plath attempts to emancipate her confined female self by taking on her strong, and furious, female mythic persona, Medea. Plath`s Medea, however, is not the traditional evil one, but the subverted modern one: the emancipated female self who redeemed the lost female voice and the violent power. Taking Medea Myth as a poetic solution, and revising it with her strong and unique vision, Plath eventually constructs her own Modern Medea Myth through a subtle and creative mytho-poesia in her own “Plath Myth”.

Simon J. Ortiz (Acoma Pueblo) well understands and expresses how oral tradition can be used as a strategy for resisting US colonialism in ensuring the survival and continuance of Native American communities. Rooted and developed within a particular Native American worldview, that is Acoma, the techniques of oral tradition employed in Ortiz`s poetry do not limit its boundary as it addresses native and non-native people alike. This paper thus explores how Ortiz in his 1981 poetry collection From Sand Creek performs the techniques of oral tradition as poetic resistance through which he defies US colonial history and presents an inclusive poetic imagination of a new community that envisions the hopeful future of US in which Native Americans revive, continue, and thrive with non-natives. The poems in the collection demonstrate that the Acoma poet`s poetic resistance is not for criticism for criticism`s sake, but for healing of Native American trauma based upon the critical retrospection of the American past. An heir of oral tradition, Ortiz interconnects the tragic stories of the past and the present, the references of Sand Creek Massacre and those of Vietnam War respectively, for instance, through which he attempts to subvert the dominant narratives of US history that justify various atrocities and violence inflicted upon Native Americans and glorify the conquest of native lands.

Throughout Seamus Heaney`s collections, we can trace the poems on a death motif as many as those of the landscape in Northern Ireland community. That`s because whenever Heaney suggested the changes into new vision of poetry, he had signalled those changes through the poems on both historical and personal death. His final book, Human Chain, however, focuses on describing a death motif itself, and Heaney begins the book with the poem on the near death experience from his mild stroke in 2006. Correspondingly, this paper tries to explore Heaney`s `looking back` and `looking forward` on life and death based on Martin Heidegger`s “Being-toward-death” and Vladimir Jankelevitch`s philosophical consideration of death. And it tries to embrace the poet`s route toward universality as well. In Human Chain, Heaney depicts death as continuity and circularity, not as finality or termination. This makes it possible that Heaney completes not only a powerful chain of human but also a great chain of poetry.

성 나르시스와 프루프록과 게론천: 분열된 자아와 욕망

In T. S. Eliot`s early poetry, the main characters from Prufrock to Gerontion are drifting lonely and alienated without anchoring in the world. They desire reconciliation with the world, but the greater their desire is, the more hurt, divided and drifted they are. Narcissus retreats from the human world and is transformed into various figures of self until he becomes the dancer to God. Prufrock is trapped in constantly overturned and delayed time, as he is divided between the past and the future self. His desire exists only in the postponement of time that separates desire from fulfillment. Gerontion finds history deceptive, noticing it to dissolve into incomprehensibility. He obsessively repeats “think” against unreliable history but ends up with dry thoughts rattling his brain. His thought no longer shelters itself against the fragments of his reverie.

『패터슨』: 자연과 사물에 대한 타자적 시선

The purpose of this study is to read William Carlos Williams` long poem Paterson with the other`s viewpoint, especially concentrating on nature and things. By personifying the city Paterson and `Patersonizing` himself, Williams can contact all the individual concrete materials in their position. He asserts `rigor of beauty` is not a particular thing but an essential value of each thing that can be grasped by the poet`s imagination. The poet Paterson contacts with all things, through the immersion in the filthy Passaic river and by two-way interaction. And he realizes that man, nature, and things are in a symbiotic relationship. Thus, such things as the city Paterson, Garret Mountain, the Passaic River, mink, the bottle, radium and so on, go beyond their distorted aspects and recover their value. Williams stresses the active penetration between the poet and the thing by imagination, trying to understand the other`s position. Also he represents a new emphatic vista to understand the value of alienated things and recover the city.

Surveying the history of translation theories, whether British concept of domestication, German Romantics` theory of foreignization, Roman Jakobson`s concept of de-familiarization, Homi Bhabha`s notion of hybrid, one could discern that the priority has been given to the original author and that a translation has been viewed as a derivative or a potentially false copy. However, examining the cases of Ezra Pound and R. Tagore, a translator`s own cognitive immediacy and authorial decisions make more critical impact on producing what Benjamin calls “an echo of the original,” which transcends both the original and the translation. Therefore, this paper approaches to Pound and Tagore as a translator and gives full recognition to a translator`s authorship by means of re-examining the dispute between Ezra Pound and R. Tagore in the estimation of English Gitanjali. In particular, it tries to shed a critical light to the inevitability of a translator`s visibility in the signifying process of translation.

Evoking National Unity : Suffering, Sympathy, and Patriotic Wars in Leaves of Grass

The first edition of Leaves of Grass in 1855 is impressively filled with bloody scenes such as a suicidal scene, a suffering slave, a mashed fireman, and martyrs of war. The sensational scenes not only attract people`s attention but also establish common ground upon which people are linked together. The blood imagery begins on the personal level, but it is developed to the public level. To evoke national unity, Whitman employs effective devices such as sympathy with victims, empathy with sufferers, and sensationalism. On the other hand, Whitman`s persona appears as a sympathetic figure in Leaves of Grass. The sympathetic yet omniscient persona identifies himself with many suffering characters in a series of vignettes. Whitman mentions destructive and sensational moments in his poems to bring up a moment of patriotic togetherness. Paradoxical as it seems to be, national union comes from a moment of disaster. In other words, the source of national unity ironically comes from the destructive scenes such as the shipwreck, the hounded slave, and the mashed fireman. Whitman interweaves suffering, sympathy, and martyrdom into national unity in Leaves of Grass.

Vacillations in a Quest for the Ultimate Symbol: Yeats`s “Meditations in Time of Civil War

This paper reads Yeats`s “Meditations in Time of Civil War” to identify the speaker`s frustration and ambivalent feelings that have been discussed in the light of different thematic variants in other readings. This paper first argues that the speaker`s emotional instability throughout the series of poems arises from a crisis of the philosopher-poet`s sense of identity in time of turbulent chaos. This paper further discusses how the vacillating mind of the speaker exhibits a typical trajectory of any effort to pursue a stable symbol that can accommodate the irreconcilable oppositions. Thus, this paper concludes that what keeps the speaker`s vacillations persisting is none other than his recognition that oppositions themselves are not stable all the time because of the indeterminate nature of the binary relationship.
