The purpose of this study is to explicate the role of metaphor and metonymy in the Imagist poetry of Ezra Pound. Imagism based on the accuracy and concreteness of language contributed to the clearing of the sentimental and rhetorical styles of Victorian verse. An important part of this role is derived mainly from the figure of speech used by the Imagist poetry. Figure of speech is a technique that has been used throughout literary history, but the one in the Imagist poetry is not adopted for its own sake, nor for a decorative purpose. Its analogy is much more concise and accurate, optimized to convey the artist’s emotions. Particularly, metaphor or metonymy serves as the core axis in many of Pound’s Imagist poems. To prove this, this study analyzes Pound’s major Imagist poems, including “Alba,” “Fan-Piece for Her Imperial Lord,” “The Jewel Stairs’ Grievance,” “Δώρια,” “The Tree,” “Gentildonna,” “Liu Ch’e” and “Papyrus”. In some cases, metaphor, and in some cases, metonymy, serves as the central technique of analogy; and in some cases, metaphor and metonymy are mixed; in some cases, in the middle of the work metonymy turns into metaphor. And in some cases, the analogy is so ambiguous that the judgment depends on the reader; and in some cases, the reader cannot find the explicit metaphor in the work itself. Sometimes it seems to exist in the reader’s imagination. All these analyses show us that metaphor and metonymy are the most essential part of Pound’s oeuvre.

This study aims to explore Asian-American literature through the works of “How I Got That Name: an essay on assimilation” of Marilyn Chin, “Sunworshippers” of Cathy Song, Asian-American writers who are writing poems that go beyond alienation to mutual human subjects. It would be meaningful for us facing the Diaspora era to track down the movements of two Asian-American female writers who have reached their peak in American literary circles. We are going to look at the mental, physical scars and painful growth of assimilation, and the process of suffering from consciousness to become a mainstream writer with subjective thinking. The theme of assimilation for Asian-American writers to ideal American is the most important and sensitive issue, and the history of pain, hurt, antagonism and growth remains in their works. As the term Asian-Americans defines, they are citizens already living on the basis of life in United States. They want to be recognized as equal Americans, not as any more foreigners. Although the Asian themes that are bound to be revealed in their works are based on their blood-related backgrounds, it should be taken as a part of the process in which writers explore their past for their works. The literature they seek is neither Asian nor American. They want pieces that contain their own self that are naturally mixed with. Any further action to define stereo types or literary tendencies for Asian Americans should be avoided. Human culture has been steadily growing and developing. As such, literature will sometimes be mixed and sometimes create new forms through constant search for change.
