This paper examines how power sturuggles are practised and provoked in Harold Pinter’s The Homecoming, regarded as a power game. According to Foucault’s theory, “power is everywhere not because it embraces everything, but because it comes from everywhere” (The Will 93). Increasingly the play is filled with unstable and tense atmosphere by conflicts between Teddy’s family who considers women as formulaic images like a mother­wife­prostitute and his wife Ruth exposing her sex or heterogeneity without compunction. In addition, men pursue language tactics to sustain their own dominant position, trying to represent her existence as a word (Mex and Lenny), exerting intelligence unreasonably (Teddy). This is, however, not just a struggle for the will to rule others, but metonymy of relations of power to affect or to be affected each other. This article analyses Pinter’s characters as an individual based on ‘power-relations’ rather than subjects locked in the structure of psychoanalytic theory. In conclusion, this study attempts to revive virtual resistance as well as the political implication in this play.

The purpose of this paper is to show the significance of women``s subjective life and identification toward the possibility of open meaning by dealing with ``A Room of One``s Own`` by Virginia Woolf and ``An Isolated Room`` by Shin, Kyung-sook. Main characters realize self-awareness and development of self by experiencing the process of separation from the male-dominated society. Two writers reflect upon women``s pain and suffering in silence. Also two works are based on the author``s own experience. The word ``alienation`` is appropriate for explaining the systematic problem on male-dominated society. Main characters realize subjective self through breaking the boundaries. A Room of One``s Own and An Isolated Room do not depict only a process of women``s growth but also shows women``s self-examination by using the present tense. The paper searches for the women``s consciousness and writing in these two works. In A Room of One``s Own, Woolf demonstrates women``s creativity by using the new form including the androgyny and creative mind. And Shin, Kyung-sook demonstrates women``s subjective self as a subversion of the ideology of male-dominated society by using woman``s own experience.

Great Expectations is one of the most representative works of Charles Dickens. Many critics have approached the novel with their focus on the growth of Pip as a gentleman. In the meantime they seem to ignore, if slightly, the role of Joe, the blacksmith, as a simple moral touchstone of the novel or the background of the main character``s moral growth. However, Joe plays a greater role in the novel than mentioned above. He represents the true qualities of a gentleman, except the quality of education, and even Dickens``s Christian morality. In addition, his reversed role as the household angel shows an enlarged role than expected as a simple background. He is not given a feminized role in his household; rather he voluntarily chooses the role in consideration of his and his wife``s character and for the peace of his household, which is very important to consider his meaning in the novel. As some critics mention, Dickens``s treatment of the concept of a gentleman in the novel is somewhat ambiguous, and it is because of the enlarged role of Joe. Joe is in fact a voice that tells of the true gentleman being not made on the basis of money or birth but on the moral quality, and of that moral quality being started and educated at home

Henry James once observed that George Eliot would "remain the great novelist who has written the fewest short stories." She is, actually, regarded as one of the greatest novelist in the world and her novella, The Lifted Veil, is highly estimated as one of the most important stories. The novella reflects Eliot``s interest in the contemporary science in her Victorian age, especially in physiology, mesmerism, and phrenology and includes many important points and themes. Unlike her other stories, however, The Lifted Veil is told entirely from the perspective of one individual, the main character, Latimer. While the protagonist suggested that he wishes to use his last hours of ease and strength in telling the story of his experience, the narrator``s credibility of the novella should be called into question due to his lack of honesty. As George Eliot herself suggested in Impressions of Theophrastus Such, "it is not possible to describe oneself at once faithfully and fully." Given the lack of confidence in the events of the narrative by the narrator, it is necessary to have critical thinking in examining the novella and analysing narrative form.

Stephen Duck``s "The Thresher``s Labour" and Mary Collier``s "Woman``s Labour" have not received appropriate critical attention, despite their importance in the eighteenth-century poetry. Duck, who once worked as thresher, significantly rewrote the georgic tradition in the eighteenth-century poetry, proving his poetic talent, while the contemporary society was skeptical about the poetic ability of the working-class poets. More importantly, Collier, the first working-class woman poet in English literature, began working-class women``s poetic tradition. Nevertheless, both Duck``s and Collier``s poetry do not articulate working-class consciousness, nor create any poetic discourses that challenge the political and economical oppression towards the working-class people in the contemporary society; their poetry rather compromises between social protest and resignation.

According to the structuralist theory, gender is not an objective correlative of reality and truth but a binarity whose meaning is different in the binary pair words such as ``man`` and ``woman``. Therefore, the practice of gender in the social context is an attempt to establish and cement the benefit and hierarchy of governing system. But if an antagonistic word is changed or corrected, the gender structure is likely to alter or be a fake. Parody is a useful way to ridicule the solid gender structure and challenge the concept of the subject. While watching a drama, audience also take part in the pleasure of criticizing it by decoding the object parodied. This study focuses on the way how two British women playwriters in the 1970s and 80s, Pam Gems and Caryl Churchill, developed the parody on gender and what the result was. They realized that gender, a way to control and suppress an individual, is a value system accumulated from the past. Especially, languaged have forced an individual to comply gender principles. Using gender parody, they tried to reveal its irrationality and unreasonableness. The method of study is based on post-structuralism, which has been influenced on feminist literature that is aimed at subverting the gender-oriented value system.

In this thesis, I will explore the significance of children’s playing areas. While young children are actively involved in their plays, the locations of their playing are changed from the potential space to the middle area according to the different periods of their ages. In The Snow Man, a young boy (no name is given) and in Gorilla, Hanna, a young girl, are in the different developmental stages whose age-differences expose their specific characteristics in terms of the types of playing areas. For the thesis, firstly I will explore the ‘second transitional object’ and ‘potential space’ on which the fantastic interplays of the young child with a snow man are acted out. Secondly, I will analyze the importance of the ‘intermediate area’ in which Hanna makes her intersubjective plays with Aldo, a rabbit doll. The intermediate area is a special place of children’s playing; both the private inner world and the outer real world are interrelated.

Eliot uses Heraclitus`` space in his Four Quartets. Although he uses Heraclitus``s principle only in "Burnt Norton," it is the theme of Four Quartets. But many people tend to overlook this fact. Heraclitus asserts that the center of all things is logos, and all things always change in the center of logos. Also, Eliot begins "Burnt Norton" with an epigraph of Heraclitus``s spatial principle. He defines time as a continuation of past, present, and future. This can be explained only metaphysically, not physically. Using the same way as Heraclitus``s principle, Eliot points to a harmony between antitheses and the harmonious moment, which he calls the still point, just as Aristotle calls it an unmoved mover. Eliot represents the still point as "dance" and "love". In conclusion, Eliot relies on Heraclitus``s spatial principle, and he creates his most meditative philosophical poem, Four Quartets.

This paper examines the influence of English learning motivation, metacognitive strategies, and the self-directed learning abilities on Korean EFL students’ English proficiency. Also, this paper endeavors to figure out the relationship between these three constructs by using confirmatory factor analysis and to draw implications for English education in Korea. A set of questionnaires with 17 items for English learning motivation, 12 items of metacognitive strategies, and 12 items of self-directed learning abilities was administered to 451 Korean junior high school students in Seoul, Incheon, Pohang, and Uljin in Gyeongsangbuk-do. The findings are as follows: Intrinsic motivation, identified regulation, three specific metacognitive strategies, and all of the sub-factors of self-directed learning abilities exerted a positive influence on the students`` English proficiency. In terms of the structural relationship among the three constructs, the confirmatory factor analysis indicated that self-directed learning ability is divided into the constructs of English learning motivation and metacognitive strategies. This study implies that there exists an ambiguity in the construct of self-directed learning ability, which needs thorough further investigations in the future.
