Charles Dickens’s Bleak House is unique among his novels because of its structure: that is, this second longest novel by Dickens has two different narrators who tell us the same events and characters. One is a third-person omniscient narrator and the other Esther, the main character. The third-person offers the bleak and stagnant reality of Victorian London in the present tense, and Esther tells of events related to her in the past tense. Dickens’s contemporary reviewers usually saw this then-new characteristic a critical weakness of the novel. However, it is the very strength that gives the novel a status of one of the best literary works in English. The novel exposes the irresponsibility of the government and the upper classes toward the poor. Their indifference derives from a general idea that they are unrelated to the poor. In this novel, Dickens seriously criticizes this idea and encourages them to feel sympathetic to the poor, showing the interconnectedness of all the people and events that initially seem disconnected. The dual structure effectively realizes Dickens’s intention. This paper traces how the two narrators help develop the theme of interconnectedness. (Chungnam National University)

The paper is to analyze and apply to Seamus Heaney’s “blackbird” poems with Wallace Stevens’s poetics on “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird.” The latter is distinguished from the romantic traditional bird-related poems and does not demonstrate common personification or immersion in emotions. Regardless of prejudice of the number 13 and black, which symbolize ominous signs or death images, Stevens attempts to represent the true characteristics of symbols in nature without exaggeration or extended interpretation, presenting the reality of nature as it is, challenging human abstractions of nature. In “Blackbird of Glanmore,” which Heaney’s traumatic memories are immanent, a blackbird gives an opportunity to meditate on his life journey. The fable-like poem, “St. Kevin and Blackbird” provides our understanding and contemplating his coexistence with the bird. As an envoy of nature, blackbirds offer a variety of material, intellectual, philosophical and spiritual meanings to poets and humans. A sense of fatality, cyclical life, and ontological nature of nature which is unmatched by any human culture, are clearly connoted in the works of both poets. (Mokwon University)

The present study elucidates the grammatical systems and descriptions of Ann Fisher’s A New Grammar (1750) in the context of the contemporary awareness of an emerging need for grammar to standardize spoken English usage. Based on these considerations, this study shows that for the first time in the history of English grammar writing, her grammar treats only spoken English as the subject of study, offers a significant insight into Augustan English, and includes syntax and syntactic punctuation within the scope of grammar apart from morphology. And also, since Ann, as a school teacher, was highly innovative, she rejected an excessive reliance on memory and introduced some novelties that were ahead of her time, which justly came along with the rigor of didactic-oriented pedagogical science, for instance, the use of various teaching aids and the exercises of bad English. Thus, her grammar should be regarded as the most successful pedagogical grammar in the early eighteenth century. (Chungnam National University)

This essay aims to discuss the effects of the Korean government’s hygiene policies on the lives of prostitutes and their families in a U. S. military base village, or kijichon in Nora Okja Kelle’s Fox Girl from the viewpoints of Achille Mbembe’s necropolitics and Michel Foucault’s biopolitics. When it comes to prostitution, it can be said that kijichons were in a state of exception, from Georgio Agamben’s perspective. Using sexually transmitted diseases testing (STD testing) as an example, Fox Gil shows how the hygiene policy pushes ex-Japanese comfort woman and kijichon prostitute Duk Hee into a worse life condition, as a prostitute in a show window, “a fish tank,” while also leading her daughter Sookie into prostitution. Because the policy was unconcerned with the test subjects and their families as a biopolitical attempt to ensure the health of the U. S. soldiers, all of the damage goes to them. The biggest problem is that the completely biased policy was implemented, even though state-regulated prostitution in Korea was abolished in 1948, and the Anti-Prostitution Law was enacted in 1961. The terrible result of the government’s policies was that such policies turned kijichons places where women cannot normally live, as we can see when Hyun Jin Kong, another victim of Korean blood- related culture, runs away to America with Sookie’s daughter Myu Myu.
