초록보기
The purpose of this study is to examine the expression of violence caused by concealed infant murder, family indifference, and lack of desire among families in Sam Shepard's Buried Child. In the family, violence is used not only as a means of pommunication, but also as a means of restoring lost masculine authority, acknowledging one's existence, and satisfying a lack of desire. The violence presented in Buried Child does not occur in special situations, but is a representation of everyday life. Families treat each other with indifference and criticism while sharing secrets with each other. The head of the family loses control and is merely an object of violence. Lethargy, loss of vitality, and criticism of others are key factors that shape the atmosphere in the home. In the final scene of Buried Child, the body of a dead infant is revealed, suggesting the possibility of resolving the cause of the conflict between the families. The buried child is not only a dead infant, but also a spiritually symbolized expression of the neglected indifference in the family consciousness. Therefore, the revealing of the buried child symbolically suggests that the realization of the recognition that indifference caused the severance of the family was achieved among the families. In conclusion, this epistemological realization can be seen as showing the possibility of new hope while suggesting the future direction of the family. (Anyang University)

Since hundreds and thousands years ago, people have gotten furs from animals in order to survive from harsh environment at first. Time goes by, the acts of survive gradually becomes for fulfilling maniac desire of possession not just for surviving like primary era. Several countries such as England, France, Spain, Netherlands, etc. in the middle age slashed animals for their furs in order to make bloody money. These European countries crossed the Atlantic to conquer the American continent in search of fur, and in the process, bloody clashes, including Beaver Wars, broke out. Fur, which was once acquired for the desire to survive, turned into madness to money and it caused violent clashes between humans around the world. The chief aim of this paper is to reveal the mythic and cultural meaning of fur with its symbolic images in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant. The film shows various kinds of symbolic meanings of fur with its vengeance storytelling and the wars that really happened in history. I would like to find each meaning of certain furs out and I also will reveal how the furs relates to the mythical elements of heroes born in terms of death and resurrection in The Revenant.

말하는 주체의 고통: 사무엘 베케트의 『이름 붙일 수 없는 것』과 윤리적 폭력

The double bind that captures the narrator in Samuel Beckett’s The Unnamable is neither “undecidability” nor “indecision” but a kind of overdetermination. It is not the existential aporia that the subject faces but the contradictory and violent conditions inherent in the social and ethical subjectivation itself. In the theories on subjectivation examined by Judith Butler, the double bind is posited as the fundamental condition of the discursive formation of subject. Both Alain Badiou who attempted an ethical reading on Beckett and Shane Weller who took a critical view against Badiou disregarded the conditions that saying is made possible only by being said, that subjectivation is a process of subjection, and that such subjection is imposed with punishment and pain. The Unnamable explores the violent structure of subjection itself rather than offer an allegory of an ethical subject. In order to explore the latent ethical meaning of Beckett’s literature, it is crucial to mark The Unnamable as a departure point. The thesis examines the limitations and possibilities of ethical reading on Beckett through an analysis of the paradoxical conditions and pain involved in subjection fully displayed in The Unnamable.

The purpose of this paper is to examine the weaving of history and memory in Alias Grace in terms of Bakhtin’s polyphonic perspectives. In this paper, I call tapestry interwoven history(warp) and memory(weft) of Grace and polyphony means multi-layered voices and views instead of a mono or single voice. I discuss the polyphonic views which is catagorized into three parts, characters, memory and images. In the polyphony of characters, Grace is objectified as a murderess and narrator of the story at the same time, Dr. Simon is represented differently as a psychiatrist and man. Also, Jeremiah makes over Dr. Jerome DuPontdp. The Polyphony for the memory of Grace is represented as memory, or catathymic amnesia which reaches a climax by Dupontdp’s hypnosis. In trance, Mary Whitney, an alter ego of Grace is revealed. Mary is a real friend and stands for the healer of Grace. At this point, Grace is released from the feeling of quilt for her mother and the murder of Nancy. Red peony and quilts are crucial for polyphonic images. The metaphor for red peony implies the traumatic memories of Grace. Quilts link thematic and aesthetic concerns and structure of the narrator/heroine’s life respectively. (Namseoul University)

This paper explores the progress of restoring an abject life in Jean Rhys’s work Wide Sargasso Sea, focusing on the main protagonist Antoinette whose life is captured by British imperialism and illusion. Rhys analyzes western colonial ideology, the system and factors that destroy life, and the meaning of social governance mainly through the concepts of Michael Foucault’s biopower and heterotopia and Giorgio Agamben’s dispositif, homo sacer, and bare life. Through this, she suggests a possibility that Antoinette’s bare life, which is constantly separated and excluded from the community by an invisible power, can be revived through her own courageous and independent resistance. To elaborate, she tries to overcome oppression not to be captured by the prejudice and sovereign power of an individual and a nation. Further, she is reborn from a destruction as a complete individual which makes her included in exclusion, going beyond the yoke of imperialism’s intervention of power and capital, conflict between classes, and dispositif that destroys one’s life. She hereby shows the possibility of embodying human freedom, equality, love, and hope in the world of imperialist dystopia. (Daejin University)

스탠필드의 『기니 항해』: 노예무역과 노예선 그리고 고통의 심연

In spite of its importance as an anti-slavery poem, J. F. Stanfield’s The Guinea Voyage has not received enough critical attention. The poem deserves more attention because it makes a most strong critique of slave trade and the growing wealth ensuing from it while most of eighteenth and nineteenth-century English writers kept their silence on the issue. Based on his experience of working on a slave ship, Stanfield realistically describes the horror of slave trade and the suffering of slaves captured, thereby eloquently voicing for the abolition of slave trade. The Guinea Voyage does not just document the details of slave trade. Rather, as a literary work, it brings out people on the most extreme stage of slave ship and asks a fundamental question which the contemporary English society tends to neglect, that is, what human beings should do about the sufferings of other people. For this reason, Stanfield and The Guinea Voyage should be given greater consideration as an important work of eighteenth-century English literature. (Hannam University)

「어셔가의 몰락」: 우울증의 치유를 위한 언캐니 판타지

This thesis analyzes the inner mind of the hero Roderick, who suffers from extreme remorse and guilt-consciousness. Various psychological symptoms such as hysteria, hypochondria and oppressive melancholia are as pervasive as psychic nightmares in the story. These psychic illnesses are related to the incest committed by siblings. Roderick’s incestuous relationship is the main source of all his mental problems and the direct cause of his sister Madeline’s cataleptic. Eventually, like a horror movie, she is buried alive by her brother. Moreover, the sister who returns from the dead evokes an uncanny kind of unimaginable terror. Roderic’s repressed unconscious desires burst out impulsively with destructive power. This indicates the return of the repressed, in which the mental symptom ultimately leads to their own death. The dark atmospheres are further complicated by mirroring images of the narrator and Rodrick’s self-destructiveness. In fact, the latter is a doubling image of the narrator as an alter ego. The story alludes to the uncanny fantasy the narrater has created, suggesting a sort of ‘ritualistic exorcism’ to heal the narrator’s melancholia and his trauma. (Hannam Univiersity)

The current study aims at investigating EFL learners’ perception of and attitude toward foreign language anxiety (FLA) using Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale, Generalized Belief Measure, Generalized Attitude Measure, and an open-ended questionnaire survey. For this study, 277 college students participated, and they were divided into two groups based on their TOEIC scores: 138 high- and 139 low-level learners. The findings of the study were as follows: 1) there was a significant negative relationship between their language achievement and FLA, which signifies that FLA is one of the major factors for L2 development; 2) the participants were slightly aware of the existence of FLA in foreign language learning settings, and low-level learners revealed more severe perception on the existence of FLA; 3) they revealed slightly positive attitude toward FLA, and no differences were found in the two proficiency-level groups; and 4) the participants reported about whether they feel FLA both positively and negatively with some persuasive reasons. Further discussion related to the results is addressed. (Chungnam National University)

The purpose of this paper is to comparatively analyze the English compound adjectives like ‘broken-hearted’ and ‘open-minded’ and their Korean correspondences in their form and meaning. We limited the first component of the English compound adjective to adjectives and the second component to past participle. We found the followings; First, the passive meaning contained in the English compound adjective tends to weaken, and is not seen at all in the Korean correspondences. Second, the phenomenon of meaning expansion is actively taking place. Third, on the conceptualization between the two languages, most of the cases showed similarity, but there were also a few cases showing different conceptualizations. The latter is important from the perspective of onomasiological theory. (Korea Baptist Theological University/Seminary)

『블루/오렌지』에 나타난 수행적 행위로서 정신과적 진단과 드라마투르기적 함의

This paper aims to explore psychiatric diagnosis represented in Joe Penhall’s Blue/Orange and offer insights into contemporary mental health drama’s contextualisation of psychiatry’s power/knowledge nexus. The play is concerned with Christopher, a young black man who is about to be released after his 28 days of observation in a hospital in London. However, the psychiatrist in charge, Bruce, intends to keep Christopher longer because he suspects him of being a paranoid schizophrenic. I examine strategies of undermining authority as well as the power of heterotopic staging in order to ascertain if and how the play subverts psychiatry’s authority. I suggest the play offers an account of how the hierarchical structures of mental health care induce individual suffering, not only on the side of the service users but also on that of the staff side. In short, I assert it is precisely Penhall’s approach to the aspect of the invisible that can facilitate a metacognitive stance in spectators because it provides both a rupture that carries some of the weight of the play’s ethical criticism and it serves as a repeated reminder to question psychiatry’s authority which seems to rest on matters of interpretation and semantics.
