ABSTRACT

This study addresses the boundaries of poetic license in the works of Sakutaro Hagiwara. The works of the concepts of Morrel and discusses the boundaries of how far readers should be allowed to go in literature and art. In Sakutaro's works, in particular, one can find sharply opposing expressionsim divided accordingly by the poetic subject and poetic object. In general, poetic subjects are mainly represented by expressions of diseased bodies, while poetic objects represent glamorous women’s bodies. Through careful examination and analysis of these two aspects, I intend to re-examine how these two aspectsare represented in Sakutaro's work. Sakutaro stands on Morrel’s border. His painted aesthetics and art present states of harsh, brutal amputations of the bodies of beautiful women, which prompt reevaluation of modern literature. How will he accommodate Sakutaro's literary experimentation and the ambiguous ethical boundaries of the artist’s experience of being the subject of woman's body, or in his free imagination, without limitation? How will the reader evaluate his work on the general social scale? I think we need another review of his poet's Moral.
