This essay examines the significance of Yank’s struggle to belong in Eugene O’Neill’s play, The Hairy Ape in light of Nietzsche’s definition of man as “a rope tied between beast and overman.” Contending that Yank’s death in the gorilla’s cage signifies both a defeat and his only chance of success, the essay investigates how his “tink[ing]” leads him to question his former understanding of what it means to belong. Knowing his struggle to belong is bound to fail, Yank uncompromisingly seeks to fit into the point of completely isolating himself from all other species in the gorilla’s cage. Consequently, he becomes “the Hairy Ape” and opens up the possibility of belonging by creating and becoming the species of one to which he alone belongs. Echoing Nietzsche’s vision of greatness in man, Yank’s endeavor proves that what is noble “in man is that he is a bridge” rather than “a goal.”

The recent census project that non-Hispanic White will be minority in thirty years has been accepted by the conservative media and politicians as the factor that threatens the authentic American national identity. The concerns about the majority-minority population chance influenced the election of Donald Trump who explicitly claimed the restriction of immigration, promising strong controls over the entry of undocumented immigrants. In the process, 'white-nationalism' based on the connection of racial whites and authentic American identity has been central issues in American society. In this sense, this paper examines who has been included/excluded from 'racial Whites' throughout the American history relating to the American identity politics and how these processes have shown the covert strategies of the whites for maintaining their privileges.

This study explores how the patriarchal system instigates violence through the use of a lottery in “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson and a reaping in The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. To maintain its validity, the patriarchal system makes people internalize the principle of homicide in everyday life. One of the effective ways to sustain the patriarchal system is to develop the gender concept clearly. In “The Lottery,” traditional gender segregation results in the construction of a homogeneous community supported by patriarchal concepts. On the other hand, The Hunger Games shows how Katniss Everdeen, the main character, experiences the different gender roles and norms according to the specific surroundings like her hometown (the 12th district), Capitol (the capital of Panem), and finally the Hunger Games stadium, where she has to kill others to survive. In the end, Katniss both becomes a political entity through playing gender performance supported by Judith Butler.

The story of Lizzie Borden has served as a creative impetus in the American imagination; following the hundred years after the Borden murders, a remarkable body of creative work has been produced. Ann Schofield asserts that the Borden story has become an “ur-text for the contemplation of power, of patriarchy, [and] of sexuality” (92). In reading Mary Wilkins Freeman's “The Long Arm” (1895), this essay re-considers Schofield's claim that the Borden story and its subsequent renditions enable a revisionary take on female subjectivity and resistance to patriarchal order. More specifically, this essay examines how Freeman's text (one of the first to fictionalize the saga of Lizzie Borden) reflects back the gendered subjectivity in the in the gothic mirror for us to consider whether that reflection began as an image of subjection or that of autonomy.

This article explores the photographic work of North American artist Jeff Wall. While his photographic work has been much discussed in terms of aesthetics and composition highlighting his methodological appropriation of modernist painters such as Eduard Manet and Piet Mondrian, the political aspect of his work remains to be investigated. This article especially unpacks the complicated dialectical relationship between the formal aesthetics and the political nature of his works by visiting his photographic work in the context of contemporary debates on the contradiction and conflicts between aesthetics and politics in photographic form. Ultimately, this article argues that Wall's photograph acquires its political meaning by problematizing the reified social representation of the other in a way in which the materiality and/or otherness of the photographic object is registered within the photographic frame and by representing the violence of the social representation and the un-representability of the object/other.

This paper gives a feminist reading of Suzanne Alexander in The Alexander Plays by focusing on her performances as active reconstitutions of history and memory. A compilation of four of Adrienne Kennedy's more recent plays, The Alexander Plays revolves around a central protagonist who, behind windows and within the closed spaces of the home, waits for her missing husband to return home. Yet, the plot of the waiting wife seems to mask the hidden and more dangerous desires for political transgressions of the play. By analyzing Suzanne's interaction with various literary and historical figures, memories and events, this paper argues that her seeming approval of domesticity, femininity and intimacy serves as a cover for her more political altercations with history, race and gender.

Two recent novels on the Korea War, Lark and Termite and The Coldest Night, focus on two particularly disturbing incidents of the Korean War: the No Gun Ri massacre and the battle of the Changjin Reservoir. The novels explore the ways in which these ugly episodes of the war revise the official memory of the Cold War and resonate with the lives of those within the U.S. After excavating and examining the relevance of the Korean War, they simulate the older paradigm of returning to domesticity, reflecting not only the cultural and political tendency of the 1950s but also that of the public responses to the 9/11. This paper intends to read the significance of the treatment of the two novels on the Korean War as well as the limits therein to understand the implications of the shifts in the American public memory of the War.
