This paper examines how Alice James's diary writing served as a kind of 'therapeutic work' for her, by emphasizing how the genre of a diary is both private and public. For one thing, The Diary is a vivid record of most trenchant issues of her own illnesses. Struggling against a variety of ways in which she had been defined as an invalid diagnosed with many different names of illnesses, writing a diary served as a therapeutic tool to Alice for dealing with her bodily pain and emotional issues. In this vein, Alice's diary functioned in the way journal therapy is helpful for healing and growth. Furthermore, her personal issues of being an invalid resonate with how women were defined as being 'invalid' in her day. In addition, she tried to deal with various topical issues, by incorporating abundant sources of public documents into her diary. Consequently, Alice's diary served as a kind of therapeutic work to address both her private issues and public affairs of her day.

The classical Western depicts the confrontations between two contending forces―the East and the West, white settlers and native Americans, and civilization and wilderness―in the backdrop of the Wild West. Conversely, the revisionist Western of the 1960s and the 1970s highlights the unknown histories of the victims of violent suppression and genocide during the era of nineteenth-century American imperial wars. Blood Meridian reveals the limits of both the classical and the revisionist Western regarding the characters, setting, and theme. Set in the frontier, as the backdrop of the American myth of the West and Manifest Destiny, the novel severely criticizes American capitalism and imperialism, describing the Glanton gang's merciless murders. Furthermore, it blurs the boundaries between civilization and barbarism through its central character, Judge Holden, who incarnates universal evil and mindless violence. Insinuating the intricate relations between violence and art, McCarthy demonstrates that art, including writing, creates life, thus enabling redemption and regeneration.

The United States is a quintessential case, demonstrating that a nation is a narrative product, a place of competition and negotiation among multiple national biographic stories. As an immigrant nation lacking primordialist elements, including blood and land, anyone who reveres universalist creeds enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and the Federal Constitution can be American, which often makes the question, who are “we the people,” truly subversive and highly-charged. In fact, how to construct national boundaries and to define the national identity has been a central topic in the history of US politics.
In this regard, this research initially seeks to situate the Trump era in the historical context of US political thought by analyzing the two competing narratives, liberal and illiberal, on the American self. Next, several cases in the period of 2019-21 are explored to understand how the battle for the soul of America was unfolded during the pandemic turbulence. Lastly, after describing the persistent crisis of US democracy in the Biden years, we search for ways to overcome the current identity crisis by developing a new common national narrative and achieving a 3political revolution.

Henry Louis Gates in The Signifying Monkey: A Theory of African American Literary Criticism (1988) examines the significance of the Signifying Monkey, a trickster figure in African folklore, and whose manner of speaking produces uncertainty and double meanings. He examines how the specific language usage of the Signifying Monkey is altered and appears in African American texts by analyzing the trope of the talking book in early slave narratives and contemporary African American literary works. Gates's book is hailed as one of the most original and groundbreaking works, and critics' responses in its twenty-fifth-anniversary edition show its continuing impact. However, it has also been criticized for an intertextual and apolitical reading of slave narratives and for reproducing essentialism of Black literature. Focusing on the trope of the talking book, I examine how Gate's theory and related contentions reveal critical issues of the African American literary tradition and problems of canon formation, regarding the concept of distinctive and coherent African American aesthetics, elitism, and its relationship with African American readers.

Steph Cha's novel Your House Will Pay depicts the history of hurt and hate between Koreans and African Americans in LA represented by the African American family of Shawn and the Korean family of Grace. This paper explores the potential of anger as an affect to incite interracial understanding in the context of the 1992 LA uprising and its aftermath. By focusing on the analysis of the scene where Shawn confronts a Korean store owner Frank, this paper demonstrates how hate between the two men changes into anger. This distinction drawn between anger and hate shows that the direction of anger is more ambiguous than hate's oppositional direction. The disorienting effect of anger in the scene is then explained through Sara Ahmed's concept of orientation to highlight the possibility of reorientation that anger opens between the two races. Furthermore, different bodily manifestations of anger that reflect its ambiguity are exemplified by Shawn's controlled anger that helps him cope with trauma and Darryl's uncontrolled anger that results in shooting Jung-Ja Han.
