ABSTRACT

This report is aimed at analyzing the photographic features expressed in the ‘Raw Image Poetry' poetics and the poetry of Oh Kyu-won by means of 『La Chambre Claire』 of Roland Barthes. To begin with, I investigated the photographic features expressed in the ‘Raw Image Poetry' poetics, using the notion of Barthes. I compared the ‘Raw Image Poetry', which tried to express ‘as it is' as if alive, with the reality of photography. In addition, I checked on that the ideal of the ‘Raw Image Poetry', composed of metonymy of combination and access by virtue of proximity, and the ideal of the photography lied in the equality. And then I analysed the photographic features, expressed in the ‘Raw Image Poetry', of his individual poems specifically. First, I noticed the poems of which themes were noème in particular, investigating his poems which presented the noème as the proof of presence and the proof of absence Barthes had said. Second, I analysed the poems which expressed the immobilization of time Barthes had said, referring to the temporality as the ground of existence. Third, I investigated the poems which was using the metonymy which was oriented to the principle of proximity, referring to the spaciality as the ground of existence. Fourth, I analysed the ‘Raw Image Poetry' which was describing the objects vividly i.e. ‘as it is' and proved that it was the very photographic image. Fifth, I analysed the poems provoked the poetic tension sharp and shocking after punctum was revealed, referring to the ‘punctum' as a hurt. Consequently I identified that Oh Kyu-won, who had struggled with the ideated language at the time of shift from metaphor in his early poems into metonymy in his late poems, had the final result of ‘Raw Image Poetry' through the struggle, and that's the most transparent photographic image.
