6 3 Katherina Petruchio Gascoigne Supposes 4 Plautus Farce happy end Supposes Cambridge Introduction Shakespeare took over the whole narrative of intrigue and misunderstanding as well as some stock characters (the ingenious servant Tranio, the elderly suitor Gremio), but characteristically he altered the effect by telling the story in chronological order (beginning with Lucentio s first sight of Bianca, instead of plunging in just before the crisis as all his classical and Renaissance predecessors do) and giving greater importance to Bianca and to the romantic feelings associated with her. He increased the confusion by giving Bianca an extra admirer in Hortensio but he omitted the final twist to the story whereby the elderly suitor (whose motive all along has been to replace his lost heir) turns out to be the father of the witty servant (Tranio) perhaps because he had recently used a very similar ending in The Comedy of Errors 5 Bianca Supposes Polynesta 2 Padua

48 45 Light in August William Faulkner, Light in August 1932 The Sound and the Fury 1929 Absalom, Absalom! 1936 Light in August Malcolm Cowley Faulkner is a solitary worker by choice, and he has done great things not only with double the pains to himself that they might have cost if produced in more genial circumstances, but sometimes also with double the pains to the reader 1 Joe Christmas Lena Grove Gail Hightower It would be easy for you to write Joe Christmas into a separate novel, but the anthologist can t pick him out without leaving bits of his flesh hanging to Hightower and Lena 2
49 46 disunity division Lucas Burch there was something definitely rootless about him, as though no town nor city was his, no street, no walls, no square of earth his home 3 I think that was his tragedy he didn t know what he was, and so he was nothing. He deliberately evicted himself from the human race because he didn t know which he was. That was his tragedy, that to me was the tragic, central idea of the story that he didn t know what he was, and there was no way possible in life for him to find out. Which to me is the most tragic condition a man could find himself in not to know what he is and to know that he will never know. 4
50 47 François L. Pitavy [Light in August] possesses an inner principle of a sort, not to be confused with the author s explicit (or unconscious) design, an order which makes it function and prevents it from being fixed and exhausted in recognized, acceptable, reassuring meanings or interpretations 5 1 here I aint been on the road but four weeks, and now I am in Jefferson already p Here we aint been coming from Alabama but two months, and now it s already Tennessee p. 480

Knows remembers believes a corridor p. 111 a corridor knowing memory He entered the shed. It was dark. At once he was overcome by a terrible haste. There was something in him trying to get out, like when he had used to think of toothpaste. But he could not move at once, standing there, smelling the woman smelling the negro all at once.... Then it seemed to him that he could see her something, prone, abject; her eyes perhaps.
52 49 Leaning, he seemed to look down into a black well and at the bottom saw two glints like reflections of dead stars. pp Sigmund Freud unheimlich heimlich unheimlich 6 heimlich 7 heimlich unheimlich 8 unheimlich heimlich 9 E. T. A.
54 51 12 a choked wail of surprise and fear p. 147 Andre Bleikastan... You little nigger bastard!, the dietitian hisses in fury, dragging the five-year-old boy from behind the curtain where he had hidden to eat her toothpaste while she was making love with a young doctor. The toothpaste episode is the primal scene in the course of which Joe s sense of blackness gets enmeshed for the first time with the temptations and terrors of sex. 13 primal scene
55 When he went to bed that night his mind was made up to run away. He felt like an eagle: hard, sufficient, potent, remorseless, strong. But that passed, though he did not then know that, like the eagle, his own flesh as well as all space was still a cage. pp
56 53 the McEacherns Joe took the first two blows; perhaps from habit, perhaps from surprise. But he took them, feeling twice the man s hard fist crush into his face. Then he sprang back, crouched, licking blood, panting. They faced one another. Dont you hit me again, he said. (p. 154) Bobbie Facing one another across the dark, stained, greasecrusted and
57 54 frictionsmooth counter, they must have looked a little like they were praying... and the woman opposite him, downcast, still, waiting, who because of her smallness partook likewise of that quality of his, of something beyond flesh. p. 168 E. H. Erik Homburger Erikson mutual narcissistic mirroring That already there is something for love to feed upon: that sleeping I know why I struck refraining that negro girl three years ago and that she must know it too and be proud too, with waiting and pride pp.
58 It s not McEachern.... It s Christmas p. 173 He did not answer at once. It was not as if he were tantalizing her. It was as if he just had not thought to speak on. She asked him again. Then he told her. I got some nigger blood in me. Then she lay perfectly still, with a different stillness. But he did not seem to notice it. He lay peacefully too, his hand slow up and down her flank. You re what? she said. I think I got some nigger blood in me. His eyes were closed, his hand slow and unceasing. I dont know. I believe I have. She did not move. She said at once: You re lying. All right, he said, not moving, his hand not ceasing. I dont believe it, her voice said in the darkness. All right, he said, his hand not ceasing. pp
59 56 Alfred Kazin Joe Christmas is nothing but the man things are done to, the man who has no free will of his own... who looks for an identity by deliberately provoking responses that will let him be someone.... His passivity, his ability to lend himself to situations and to people who will carry him for a while, is immense and pitiful. 19
60 57 quite simple, quite easy p. 211 What about it? You look all right. You ought to seen the shine I turned out just before your turn came p He did not know until then that there were white women who would take a man with a black skin. [p. 212]
61 58 He now lived as man and wife with a woman who resembled an ebony carving. At night he would lie in bed beside her, sleepless, beginning to breathe deep and hard. He would do it deliberately, feeling, even watching, his white chest arch deeper and deeper within his ribcage, trying to breathe into himself the dark odor, the dark and inscrutable thinking and being of negroes, with each suspiration trying to expel from himself the white blood and the white thinking and being. p. 212 physical outrage and spiritual denial p. 212 He thought that it was loneliness which he was trying to escape and not himself p Joanna Burden 22
62 59 23 numberless avatars But the street ran on in its moods and phases, always empty: he might have seen himself as in numberless avatars, in silence, doomed with motion, driven by the courage of flagged and spurred despair; by the despair of courage whose opportunities had to be flagged and spurred. p. 213 Sometimes he would remember how he had once tricked or teased white men into calling him a negro in order to fight them, to beat them or be beaten; now he fought the negro who called him white p. 212
63 60 24 the neutral grayness It is just dawn, daylight: that gray and lonely suspension filled with the peaceful and tentative waking of birds.... He breathes deep and slow, feeling with each breath himself diffuse in the neutral grayness, becoming one with loneliness and quiet that has never known fury or despair. That was all I wanted, he thinks, in a quiet and slow amazement. That was all, for thirty years. That didn t seem to be a whole lot to ask in thirty years. p
64 61 Like all great novelists, Faulkner was well aware that individuality and society were always locked in a relationship of reciprocity: no one, not even the outsider, is outside the jurisdiction of society; we are all within society, for no sooner are we born than society is within us and starts to pattern our lives. 25 He had grown to manhood in country, where like the unswimming sailor his physical shape and his thought had been molded by its compulsions without his learning anything about its actual shape and feel p. 320
65 62 A dual personality: the one the woman at first sight of whom in the lifted candle... there had opened before him, instantaneous as a landscape in a lightningflash, a horizon of physical security and adultery if not pleasure; the other the mantrained muscles and the mantrained habit of thinking born heritage and environment with which he had to fight up to the final instant. p the tide would ebb p. 242
66 63 What he found was a stranger who put aside with the calm firmness of a man his hand when at last and in a kind of baffled desperation he went and touched her p. 253 a garment that looked as if it had been made for and worn by a careless man p. 260 two other men p. 265 talking to God as if He were a man in the room with two other men p. 265 He could not distinguish the words; only the ceaseless monotone. He dared not try to distinguish the words. He did not dare let himself know what she was at. So he would stand there and wait, and after a while the voice would cease and she would open the door and he would enter. As he passed the bed he would look down at the floor beside it and it would seem to him that he could distinguish the prints of knees and he would jerk his
67 64 eyes away as if it were death that they had looked at. pp Some time had elapsed, but it seemed to him that if he turned his head he would still see the two of them, himself and the man, kneeling beside the bed, or anyway, in the rug the indentations of the twin pairs of knees without tangible substance. Even the air seemed still to excrete that monotonous voice as of someone talking in a dream, talking, adjuring, arguing with a Presence who could not even make a phantom indentation in an actual rug. p. 144 the man 26
68 65 Then he climbed into the window; he seemed to flow into the dark kitchen.... Perhaps he thought of that other window which he had used to use and of the rope upon which he had had to rely; perhaps not p. 216 Field peas cooked with molasses p. 217 And memory knows this; twenty years later memory is still to believe On this day I became a man p Jacques Lacan 27 28
69 66 Language never quite comes up to the meaning of events.... The townspeople exist in Light in August, as in so many Faulkner novels, to ask questions whose very function is to deny the possibility of an answer. Faulkner s grim, sarcastic asides show that he views language as in some basic sense unavailing. The astounding repetition of certain key phrases and verbal rhythms in his work signifies his return back and back on the question. 28 Light in August somehow rocklike, indomitable, not so much ungentle as ruthless p. 135 His voice was not unkind. It was not human, personal, at all. It was just cold, implacable, like written or printed words p. 139
70 67 He could see it like a printed sentence, fullborn and already dead God loves me too like the faded and weathered letters on a last year s billboard God loves me too p. 98 The boy knelt; the two of them knelt in the close, twilit room.... McEachern began to pray. He prayed for a long time, his voice droning, soporific, monotonous.... He finished and rose, heaving to his feet. The boy still knelt. He did not move at all. But his eyes were open (his face had never been hidden or even lowered) and his face was quite calm; calm, peaceful, quite inscrutable. (p. 143) a[n] instrument of God p. 364

72 69 33 Jezebel p. 191 Perhaps they were not even his hands which struck at the face of the youth whom he had nurtured and sheltered and clothed from a child, and perhaps when the face ducked the blow and came up again it was not the face of that child. But he could not have been surprised at that, since it was not that child s face which he was concerned with: it was the face of Satan, which he knew as well. And when, staring at the face, he walked steadily toward it with his hand still raised, very likely he walked toward it in the furious and dreamlike exaltation of a martyr who has already been absolved, into the descending chair which Joe swung at his head, and into nothingness.

Then he would go and take it up and open it. He would now remember the hollow fencepost as something of which he had heard told, as having taken place in another life from any that he had ever lived.

It lasts just for a day or two, then it s gone, but every year in August that occurs in my country, and that s all that title meant, it was just to me a pleasant evocative title because it reminded me of that time, of a luminosity older than our Christian civilization. 42 that story began with Lena Grove, the idea of the young girl with nothing, pregnant, determined to find her sweetheart....

88 85 SYNOPSIS Katherina! Bianca! What Makes You Do So? Yoshiya Kojo Katherina and Bianca are two daughters of Baptista Minola, a rich, widower merchant in The Taming of the Shrew. It is worthwhile pointing that the models of them are taken from two different sources: the prototype of Katherina (elder sister) is found in the folklore tradition in Europe, while Bianca (younger sister) is based on one of the stories, in the book titled Supposes by Gascoigne, which is a prose translation of Ariosto s I Suppositi, which traces back to a collection of Roman Comedies by Plautus. A girl who was mere object of marriage in Supposes is characterized as Bianca who is attractive enough to be wooed by young Lucentio. As for Katherina, her speeches and behaviors are so energetic and realistic that readers and audience can readily empathize with her in spite of her comical role. This early comedy shows Shakespeare s dramaturgy to enliven the people on stage. In this paper is presented a psychoanalytical view on the two sisters based on their speeches and actions in five Acts of the play.
89 86 SYNOPSIS The Individual and Society in Richard Hiroki Matsuyama Since the first staging, the focus of criticism about William Shakespeare s Richard has been unstable, and also the genre of the play indeterminable. That is because Richard represents the individual s struggle against society, and the image of Richard has varied corresponding to the transition of society. Sigmund Freud explained the origin of this relationship as family issues in terms of psychoanalysis. These family and society problems are two sides of Richard. Shakespeare s histories attract the attention not only to the nation, but to the individual, especially society victims or family victims from the view of Renaissance thought or modernity. This tendency turned his histories into tragedies. Richard is the typical example of the transition in 1590s in England, of the genre; histories and tragedies, and of the focus; individual and society. In the 20th or 21st century, some playwrights have introduced Richard or Richard to their plays. It is the attempt to reduce the influence of the modern authority; society, nation and canonical Shakespeare. Richard is the symbol of the resistance or the ambiguity for them and therefore Richard has been given a variety of views or criticisms.
90 87 SYNOPSIS The Isolation and the Eternity in Light in August Focusing on Joe Christmas Makiko Udou William Faulkner s Light in August, published in 1932, can be regarded as his most inscrutable work. In his letter addressed to Faulkner, Malcolm Cowley, the critic, says that it would be easy for you to write Joe Christmas into a separate novel, but the anthologist can t pick him out without leaving bits of his flesh hanging to Hightower and Lena. Sure enough, although each character seems to be one of three different layers at a glance, they are closely connected with each other as if they are structural elements of a single body. One of the connections is, ironically, the isolation. The isolation of Christmas, however, stands out from that of others. As Faulkner himself says, he deliberately evicted himself from the human race because he didn t know which he was. That was his tragedy, that to me was the tragic, central idea of the story that he didn t know what he was, and there was no way possible in life for him to find out. In this paper, mainly with the help of Freud s psychoanalytical theories, concerned with a kind of uncanniness, and a repetition of one s own past, I examine the isolation of Joe Christmas: not only the cause of it, but also the process for curing it. Finally, I reveal that he is no longer solitary, the man not knowing what he is at the end of this novel.
