This essay examines the ways in which literature interacts with philosophy (and vice versa) in Western civilization from Greek tragedy to modern literature. Simultaneously, it also seeks to explore the changes within and significance of this relationship between literature and philosophy in terms of Nietzschean and Derridean critiques of a long tradition of dogmatic conviction that truth is fixed, priori, and transcendental. By discussing literature in terms of the notion of the Dionysian thought in Nietzsche and the concept of writing in Derrida, I argue that the deconstructionists' endeavors to challenge the monolithic knowledge system in the Western tradition since Plato might be effective in either defending or defining literature as forms of life whose essential task is both to re-present and to represent: to narrate what is taking place in the world and to speak for the disenfranchised and the marginalized in the post- Enlightenment era.

After reading Woman on the Edge of Time (1976), the reader is left to ruminate on the legitimacy of Consuelo “Connie” Ramos's experience and its significance. This question leads to an investigation on how Connie's experiences not only transform her so she could understand her situation from a different perspective but also how some of these experiences can be read as performances that can transform the subject and the audience as a participant. This is significant, as examining Connie's travel into the future as a transformative performance linking the present with a utopian future illustrates the affective power of performance. This paper borrows from Judith Butler's concept of performance, Richard Schechner's analysis of rituals, and interprets the play of conformity as a performance as conceptualized by Sadiya Hartman and as a kind of mimicry based on the use of this concept by Homi Bhabha in The Location of Culture to analyze the novel through performance and its affective. I argue that the dynamic relationship between the quotidian life of Connie as a woman of color hospitalized in a mental institution in the 1970s, the rituals performed in Mattapoisett of 2137, and her travel to this possible eco-feminist utopian future can be interpreted as performances are a source of comfort which incites Connie to take up arms and fight for a divergent future against the absolute systemization of biopolitical mechanisms.

The purpose of this study is to delve into the meaning of death represented in Death with Interruptions written by José Saramago. In order to explain the meaning of death in modern/postmodern age, I adopt the opposite terms, “dis-enchantment” and “re-enchantment.” Besides these two polar view points, I examine Jaspers' definition of “Existenz” to analyze the meaning of death suspensions, which occurred twice in this novel. In conclusion, I show that while the modern secular society has been trying to disenchant all kinds of the unknown, including death and dying, Saramago's Death with Interruptions gives a chance for readers to rethink the fact that we are still aspiring to the unrepresentable, or things beyond our language, such as death, spirituality for our truthful life.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and The Picture of Dorian Gray deal with the characters, Jekyll and Dorian who suffer from their double nature. The corrupted nature of Hyde, Jekyll's the other ego, is reflected in the mirror while Dorian's divided nature is reflected through the picture of him. What is common is that their other natures of evil are clearly mirrored as the independent monstrous egos which still belong to the imaginary world of the infancy stage. The egos have been created and formed as a result of the reflections of the trauma they experienced in their childhood. So they come to have dissociative identity disorder to defend themselves from mental or physical pain. If then, why and how should Dr. Jekyll's and Dorian Gray's dissociative identity disorder be interpreted? In this study, accordingly, we will examine the literary implications of dissociative identity disorder that Dorian and Jekyll show, from the concept of Jacques Lacan's mirror stage as well as from those of Michel Foucault's metaphorical mirror and Gilles Deleuze's simulacre.
