    Neighborhood and Private Property Rights in Clybourne Park

    Jeongsub Nam | 2018, 46() | pp.5~26 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract
    This paper examines a neoliberal standpoint in Bruce Norris’s Clybourne Park, a re-imagination of Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, from which he argues that white residents have the right to keep their own neighbors and their home prices as they want, and their rights should be respected. The arguments of Karl Lindner, who represents the white residents in Clybourne Park, a white suburban neighborhood, are compared with the claims of other characters in order to analyze the issues of private ownership, neighborhood, urban gentrification, and race in a historical and economic context. First, this paper investigates what is not clearly reflected on the mirror as the first and second acts of the play mirror each other, and then discuss the issue of private property rights in connection with discussions on the Stand Your Ground law. Second, this paper discusses the racial prejudice against African Americans’ move-in as the cause of the economic downfall of a suburban neighborhood. In addition, the historical context in which state-sponsored mortgage loans were scarcely provided to black citizens is examined. On this basis, it can be argued that Bruce Norris made an intentional mistake of treating Clybourne Park as an inner suburb near the city center rather than a suburban residential area. Finally, it can be concluded that to consider a black couple’s opposition to an attempt by a white couple to gentrify a black neighborhood as an example of reverse racism will result in obscuring the structural inequalities.

    A Study on Imitative Poetry Writing Class to Improve Metaphorical Expressions among Korean Language Learners

    Gumsuk kim | 2018, 46() | pp.45~72 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract
    The purpose of this study is to propose an imitative poetry writing class as a way to improve metaphorical expressions among Korean language learners and discuss its effect based on actual class. For advanced level learners, the writing education must enable them to acquire sophisticated and creative expressions. Therefore, this study designed an imitative poetry writing class that can be applied to Korean writing class and proposed an instruction model that consists of original text reading and imitative poetry writing. The most important consideration in this model is to ensure sufficient understanding of the original text based on discussions and dialogues between instructor and learners and between learners and to lead to imitative poetry writing subsequently. This study analyzed a case of an actual class to which the proposed model was applied. In the class, learners read three pieces of original text and understood them by forming various discussions and dialogues. And then, by using metaphorical expressions related to a poem, they wrote an imitative poem. The imitative poems written by the learners showed four types of metaphorical expressions: first, expressions that copied those found in the original text; second, direct use of idiomatic expressions based on basic metaphors; third, expansion or sophistication of basic metaphors; and, fourth, creation of new metaphors. Most learners mostly used the third type of expressions while some progressed to the fourth type. This demonstrates that practicing creative and metaphorical expressions through imitative poetry writing was relatively successful. In other words, imitative poetry writing had educational effects on improving linguistic expressions and creative expressions among learners.

    The comprehension of the erotic phenomenon

    son youngchang | 2018, 46() | pp.73~90 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract
    In The Erotic Phenomenon, Marion argues that by an erotic reduction, the meaning of truth as certitude est put in doubt. This means that the self is given not mainly through doubt, as in Descartes’ Cogito ergo sum, but through the fact that one is loved by someone else: only through this love from the outside can the existence of the self as lover or be loved be justified. On this point, Marion also claims that the traditional metaphysical depiction of the human being as the ego cogito forgets what is most unique to humanity: the question of love. Thus ‘to be or not to be’ is not the main question of the philosophical quest. The human being risks vanity and nihilism by referring to the question of certitude; only when this being inaugurates the erotic reduction by asking ‘Does anybody out there love me?’, can it become authentically human. Yet even this question leads to a type of ‘ontological’ vanity (as being loved is valued more than love) and also to the impossibility of self-love, and so the erotic reduction must be radicalized with the question, ‘Can I love first, even without being loved in return?’ This radicalization allows us to find out new possibility of intersubjectivity based on the erotic phenomenon.

    One day hotly experienced by an ice dealer - An micro-historical analysis on a participant in the 3․15 worthy uprising -

    Ick-Jin SEO | 2018, 46() | pp.91~116 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract
    This paper attempts to review a historic event through a window of individual experience done by a person named Sang-Chil HA, He made some 50 years lately a testimony that he had participated actively in the manifestation occurred at the night of March 15 in 1960. For this purpose we applicate the micro-history methodology that tries to write a history of ‘possibility’ as much as possible by utilizing private recordings and testimonies etc. that have been traditionally considered as non-historical sources. This paper begins to summarize the profile of the target person and give the totality of his testimony before estimating the historic value contained in his testmony. And we will treat two following questions that will be respectively given one chapter. First question concerns the motivation of his participation in the event. We can derive a sentiment of justice shared among others and embodied into the person in question by studying both social factors and individual ones. Secondly, it is the question about the reasons for his long silence. It becomes possible to verify how exhaustively the horror to an eventual revenge by the public power and the red trauma influenced upon the life of one individual.

    “Take Me Out of Your Sight. Treat Me as Nothing”: The Interplay between Visuality and Language in Seamus Heaney’s The Burial at Thebes (2004)

    Chan Hee Hwang | 2018, 46() | pp.117~131 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract
    This essay examines how Seamus Heaney’s The Burial at Thebes (2004), a version of Sophocles’ Antigone, reveals the mechanism that makes Antigone “nobody” and, in turn, triggers the fatal implosion of the established system of society and symbol. Foregrounding the significance of “nobody” who exists in the chasm between verbal representation and visual entity, Heaney questions the system that justifies the transformation of Antigone into “nobody” and reveals Creon as a manipulator of the system. Inspired by Jacques Lacan’s investigation of the gaze and language, this essay shows how Creon as a ruler attempts to define the system of visibility and language for his own purpose and interest, and how the oppressed Antigone takes vengeance using her erased and silenced existence.
