초록보기
After returning to her hometown of Kobe, Japan for the first time in thirteen years, Kyoko Mori finds herself a stranger in a foreign land. Her memoir, The Dream of Water, is not only her account of the seven-week trip back to Japan but also her discovery of many family secrets, her awakeningssafreeindividual,andherchallengetothedictatorialJapanese patriarchy embodied by her father, the society, and the nation. Kyoko Mori, a Japanese immigrant to the United States of America, won a New York Times Notable Book of the Year award and a publishers weekly Editor`s Choice Best Book award with her first novel, Shizuko`s Daughter, in 1993. Even though sharing a similar plotand theme with that of her award-winning fiction, her memoir, The Dream of Water, is more disturbing and penetrating by virtue of the author`s keen observation and examination of Japanese culture. Due to the switch in genre-from fiction to memoir-more agonizing sentiments are unveiled. Positioning herself as a grown-up and an outsider, but inspecting her family and Japanese society from an insider`s viewpoint, Mori analyzes the physical and spiritual violence that her suicidal mother suffered, the hypocrisy in the discrepancy between the public image and private life of her father, and the egocentric supremacy of Japanese culture in the society. This paper will discuss how Kyoto Mori, through her journey to Japan, awakens to herempathy with people of differentracesand to her sense of self as a woman with independence and confidence.

A Modern Korean Feminist`s Reading of Woong-nyeo Myth

( Seung Hee Kim )

초록보기
This paper investigates how the prototype of Korean mother Woong-nyeo (Bear Woman) has achieved her gender identity as the mother of the mythic founder of Korea, Tangun, the presumable forebear of patriarchal Confucian society, as expressed in the ancient book of history, Samguk-Yusa. According to this myth, Tiger and Bear desired to be incarnated as human beings. Due to the lack of endurance, the Tiger is, however, expelled from the earth, breaking the taboo brought by the god Hwan-ung. The remaining animal, the Bear, did endure and was transformed into a human being and was to become the first mother of humanity in Korea. When we analyze Woong-nyeo`s achievement of her gender identity in terms of Jacque Lacan`s or Julia Kristeva`s psychoanalytical semiotics, we can interpret the process of the Bear`s loosing her tigerishness as that of losing the original androgyny in the natural humanity. On the other hand, Tiger`s masculinity corresponds to the unbridled and aggressive female nature or animus energy or eroticism oppressed by Confucianism. As a result, the Bear-woman is idolized as the founding mother of Korea. Since 1970, Korean feminist poets have desired to cast off the identity fixed by the myth of motherhood to retrieve the Tigerishness oppressed by Confucianism and to become free and nomadic subjects. In order to regain the subjectivity of androgyny by restoring the Tigerishness which the Bear-woman has lost, modern feminist poets write bold satire criticizing Confucianism by using erotic or explicitly sexual language. They are describing nomadic freedom in order to destroy the uniform identity fixed by Confucianism by using literary techniques such as surrealistic automatic skill, paradox, oxymoron, parody and cynicism. In fact, the Korean feminist language attempts to repel the imposed identity of Bearishness and expresses the desire to restore the expelled Tigerishness.

This article focuses on analyses of first-person narratives by a former Korean comfort woman mother, Akiko, and her Korean-American daughter, Beccah. Akiko`s narrative claims to write the alternative history in which the Korean Military Sexual Slavery by Japan was experienced under Japanese colonialism. Her post-traumatic narrative was intertwined by Induk`s immanent presence in Akiko`s body influenced by shamanistic performance. Beccah`s first-person narrative shows how the immigrant Korean-American family overcomes the specific post-traumatic symptoms and how the Korean-American daughter embraces the tragic situation while searching for her own Korean cultural and historical legacy and her own subjectivity as a Korean-American daughter. Thus, Keller`s writing evokes and sustains the complex issues of nationality, subjectivity, memory, and first-person narrative that interweave in the formation of identity and subject-making.
