T. S. Eliot`s Four Quartets is known as one of representative poems of Modernism. This means it is also regarded as the organic poem that can unify all kinds of thoughts. So it has been a canon and seems to be unable to be opposed by any critic. But the idea of deconstruction opens the door to make us read Eliot`s poems deconstructively. Burnt Norton, the first section of Four Quartets, shows characteristics of deconstruction Of course it cannot be decisively said as a work of Postmodernism Eliot declared himself as traditionalist and Anglo-Catholic. His poems are fundamantally based on tradition and Christianity. So Their themes commonly go toward `Logos`, the centre of all existents. Inspite of that, the process toward Logos deconstructs binaries such as spirit/sense, abstract/illustrative. From this point BN has postmodern factors. `Rose-garden` is known as the idealistic and symbolic space, but I want to think it as deconstructive space which dissolves all binary and opposing things. Binary system has supported Western Plilosophy for a long time and it has been both the dominating and the dominated. Deconstruction dissolves this system. Particularly languge has been sured of having a fixed meaning, but this illusion began to break down. BN has been read as having the fixed meaning, influenced by New Criticism. But it can be read with endless meanings. The text shows slipping, sliding of words. These are deconstruvtive characteristics of words. So Eliot might have been aware of them. BN is also self-referential. Self-referentiality is one of main postmodern characteristics. BN shows the cyclic function of word. Abstract aspect has repressed illustrative one in literature of Modernism. But in BN the former alternates with the latter and even is inverted. By this fact BN has deconstructive factors and this is just the purpose of this paper. It is not the purpose of this paper to identify who `Logos` is, but to make clear the deconstructive process toward just the `Logos`. Anyway reading deconstructively on BN presents the chance to feel the pleasure of reading and make it an open-text and widen the horizon of interpretation.

The purpose of this study is to explore Greene`s moral vision Greene deals with human spiritual liberation and salvation of the soul according to moral dimension rather than religious logic. In The Power and the Glory, through the whiskey-priest`s death Greene indicates true martyrdom and the priest`s fabrication. Greene believes that the priest should share human love and practice humanity through direct suffering in human life. In conclusion, the characteristics of Greene`s moral vision are as follows: First, the image of God is embodied in human relations which are honest and true to oneself and other people. Secondly, by emphasizing the nature of sin and the homogeneity and causality of good evil, Greene asserts new moral law rather than dogma. Thirdly, Greene attaches importance to the realities of life rather than the future life. Greene regards the moral sense assuming pity, human love and humanity as fundamental elements of religion. Greene`s moral vision is a return to an original moral sense of Christ.

The purpose of this thesis is to research into transcendentalism in Saul Bellow`s Humboldt`s Gift. First of all, it is necessary to provide a dear definition for the word "transcendentalism" as used in this paper. Transcendentalism is an idea which attaches great importance to spiritual communion with God, unity with the universe, and consciousness transcending the ego. In addition, it holds that human beings are happy when they harmonize with nature, that is to say, God`s symbolic representation, through a philanthropic spirit of brotherhood and a return to nature. In Humboldt`s Gift, Charlie Citrine is harassed by the panic of death early in life, so that he cannot attend Humboldt`s funeral or even allow himself to view the dosed casket. On the day that Humboldt and his mother`s bodies are moved from one grave to another, Citrine finds out that death is not a dreadful reality to confront eventually, but a rite of passage so that one may return to the spiritual world. Finally, he looks at the transcendental light as having something in common with God, realizing the state of nothingness. In conclusion, it is clear that Bellow`s transcendental idea is based upon Emerson`s transcendentalism. By the way, the fact that we can`t overlook is that Bellow`s protagonists perform the role as a mission of the transcendental truth, In the same way, Charlie Citrine, the protagonist of Humboldt`s Gift, also fights against the social contradiction and depravity to save America. He is sure that his mission should not only have a sense of duty to accomplish his responsibility for the mankind but discover the truth buried under the chips of a falsehood in this world.
