This paper is concerned with Coetzee``s intention of experimenting with new subjects through the movement of his spatial background, centering on the novels The Master of Petersburg and Slow Man. These novels are based in Russia and Australia, in contrast to South Africa where Coetzee placed his past novels. The Master of Petersburg treats the subtle tension between a revolutionist devoting his attentions to history, and a writer criticizing “blind revolution”. Following this course, Coetzee raises the question whether Dostoyevsky``s reproach of a revolutionist can be indeed justified in a complex way. Coetzee, that is, confuses the reader by not giving Dostoyevsky moral legitimacy. The Dostoyevsky Coetzee creates is obsessed with a desire for writing and eventually comes to betray everyone around him, including his dead son, using them as materials for his writing. But Coetzee does not blame Dostoyevsky, as most writers inevitably use people around them for inspiration. Slow Man characterizes the individual``s self-conscious life, regardless of political or historical aspects, as in The Master of Petersburg. The main character, Paul Rayment, is an immigrant from France who has been disabled in a bicycle accident in his old age. This circumstance stresses his strangeness and Otherness as a “slow man”, the title of the novel. His situation of being disabled, however, incites him to come to accept the Other. Based on these novels’ characters, this present work analyses how the main subjects of these texts have changed as the backgrounds of these texts have shifted from South Africa to Russia and Australia. This is because it is important that the changes reflected on the new spaces have shown the author’s recreated view with his own immigration. In this context, this paper emphasizes that The Master of Petersburg and Slow Man are creative narratives which need to be extended to readings related to movement of background, to Russia and Australia, far from Coetzee’s homeland of South Africa.

사라 케인의 폭파에 나타난 폭력과 윤리적 가능성

This essay analyses Sarah Kane``s Blasted in the theories of Antonin Artaud, Marquis De Sade, and of Gilles Deleuze. As one of the Thatcher``s children, Kane very well recognized what was placed beneath the social order of Britain in her age which was violence. Therefore in Blasted and in all of her career, trying to find new theatrical forms which called later the experimental theatre, she sought to break from the old British theatrical style which was a journalistic realism functioning as a ‘talking head’. Artaud``s theory of the theatre of cruelty tells us how Blasted worked as a play that affect audience``s emotion directly by the cruelties of the play. According to Artaud, ‘first comes the emotion, the thinking afterword`` is the way of the theatre working. Extrapolating on the basis of the theory of Sade, we are able to understand what was a hidden principle of Britain, at least her generation. Kane made an attempt to reveal it and wanted theatre-goers to notice that principle. The theory of Deleuze, expecially on Spinoza``s ethics, explains what kind of ethics possible in Blasted. It is ethics of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ rather than ‘good’ and ‘evil’. Characters in the play show how to follow good mode of being and how to deny bad mode of being by their relations to each others. Blasted is certain one of the most shocking plays in the contemporary theatre, but distinctly is the play that opens up a new ethical possibility.

섀런 올즈의 에로스의 목소리

This article is an effort to characterize the poetical subject of Sharon Olds by examining her erotic voice. She strategically uses the most provocative language, such as cock and cunt, to shock readers, while shamelessly exposing not only sexual activities of her own but also those of her parents, sister, and children. Her popularity among general readers, apparently coming from her wide openness to sex, sometimes arouses critical response that she is sensational, repetitive, and shallow. However, Olds’s scandalous language is often successful in charming readers to listen to her inner voice, erotic as it may be, to what goes beyond sensationalism. First, Olds’s sensational verbal usage can be acknowledged as a legitimate approach to literature if only supported by her candidness, and contributable to conjuring up thematic potentialities as in “The Pope’s Penis” and “Ode to the Clitoris.” Second, her seeming repetitiveness harbors varieties and even developments as the motif of sex and love changes from about parents’ puritanical pressure to about her father on his deathbed, and to about divorced husband. Additionally, her poetry sometimes deals with other subject-matters than sexual eroticism as in “Still Life in Landscape.” Third, in her most successful poems, such as “Sex without Love” and “Stag’s Leap,” she is so versed at using multi-layered metaphors, and so complicated in responding to sex and body, as to show her sense of balance and thematic depth.

Hawthorne``s Characters`` Inner Conflicts in The Scarlet Letter are characterized by his memorable themes about fate and the human free will. His fate consists of Calvinistic Providence, and Predestination. His perspectives on the human free will appear to stem form different sources: partly from Calvinism, and partly from Transcendentalism and Arminianism. When his characters`` inner conflicts are intertwined with fatalistic forces by free will and sins, he is troubled by the good. In The Scarlet Letter Hester has strong irresistible free will and resists fate, but the one is devastated by the other. Her husband Chillingworth has also the proud free will which includes evil intention to sin against Holy Spirit. That is, he lacks love and reverence for the human soul, whose evil is called “unpardonable”. He accentuates intellectual arrogance more than soul and finally he collapses, being unable to recover the Providence. In addition, he takes a posture with an inner conflicts on human relations, too.

Responding to Kureishi`s call for ``a fresh way of seeing Britain,`` this essay analyzes the reconceptualization of home(land) by the Windrush generation in Sam selvon`s Moses Aseending (1975) and Moses Migrating (1983). Moses, narrator and protagonist both novels, is a whitewashed black immigrant from Trinidad, who has come to London in the 1950s like many other West Indian immigrants Known as the windrush generation. Moses Ascending begins as a success story of a black immigrant who becomes a landiord of a dilapidated London house, ensconces himself in the highest fiat, and hires a white man Friday as a servant. As the story unfolds, however, Moses`s house becomes a site where hierarchical binaries of white vs. black, master vs. servant, landlord vs. tenant, and native vs. immigrant are collapsed through a series of ``comic reversals.`` The ongoing reorganization of Moses` s house questions the racist logic behind post-1962 immigration policies and racial attacks on black immigrants. Furthermore, in Moses Migrating set in Ttinidad during the Carnical season Selvon satirizes Moses`s misled identification with the `mother country` and mocks the idea of Keeping Britain white,Read together, Moses Ascending and Moses Migrating challenge the narrow and inaccurate definition of Britain as white people`s home(land).

Sally Morgan``s My Place, a landmark of Aboriginal literature, has a great meaning in terms of its recovery of the history of Aborigine and engraving its own rightful existence in Australian society, which has been rejected intentionally by whites. In some aspects, however, the narrative of My Place has been treated as just a piece of the past which should be integrated into the formation of Australian national narrative, while the history of violence and abuse to Aboriginal people by whites is being buried into the past. The purpose of this paper is to re-read and to analyze My Place to demonstrate that it is loaded with the discomfiture which could rupture white Australian national narrative. To achieve this aim, this paper critically analyzes Bill Milory and Drake-Brockman, the two white male characters who are deeply involved in the lives of three Aboriginal women characters. Through this analysis, this paper demonstrates Bill``s pain was caused by his reminding of racial abuse to Aboriginal people in Australia from the memories of the Holocaust he witnessed at the Nazi``s concentration camp during World War II. Also, this paper shows that the silence of Daisy as a victim of white male pioneers ironically makes the existence of Drake-Brockman and his violence and exploitation to her come to the surface of the narrative. In conclusion, this paper demonstrates that My Place, by exposing discomfitures of Australian history concerning white males, ruptures and implodes the white Australian national narrative from the basis which has been fostered through passing the shameful history of violence and exploitation into oblivion.

This research aims to incorporate TedED into general college-level English classes in South Korea. The students who participated in the research were English majors, who registered for general English classes. The TedED online site includes diverse lesson themes that are worth sharing. The site also offers unique functions such as ‘follow-up questions,’ ‘discussion questions,`` and ‘dig deeper.`` The research questions are related to learners`` perspectives toward using the TedED video clips in English reading classes and the effects of the TedED on learners`` affective factors. Throughout the classes, students watched the TedED video clips as a pre-reading activity. During the lesson, students received a lecture about the TedED video and the reading materials from the main textbook. For the team project of the course, students were required to perform a lecture demonstration like a speaker in the TedED. Since this paper is a case study, the data were collected from interviews, surveys, observations, and learners’ weekly journals in order to enhance the trustworthiness of the study. The findings of the research show several pedagogical implications regarding the incorporation of TedED into an EFL context. TedED is very useful for EFL English classes, but instructors need to select easy, varied, and interesting video clips from the TedED site so that learners may not perceive them as difficult.
