    Virginia Woolf Review   30号   27 - 44  2013.10  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    A new kind of anti-feminist movement has developed, one that Angela McRobbie and others have labelled 'post-feminism': an attempt to fragment feminist solidarity and diminish its societal contributions. This article explores the broader significance of contemporary feminism, and presents a new paradigm of kinship based on women's relationship to the state. More specifically, it investigates the representation of women within the British suffrage movement. Joan of Arc was an icon of the British suffrage movement during the early twentieth century, and she was portrayed as a heroine in Bernard Shaw's play Saint Joan (staged in 1923, published in 1924). Simultaneously, I examine the cross-cultural taboo of incest in relation to kinship, and the concept of 'promiscuous obedience' developed by Judith Butler in Antigone's Claim: Kinship Between Life and Death. Butler and Shaw perceive Antigone and Joan respectively as women who were persecuted by the state because of their 'manly' behaviour and speech. By analysing Joan's strategies during the turbulent war, the article describes how Shaw's female protagonist attempted to defamiliarize the meaning of 'kinship'. Shaw's Joan created a new paradigm of kinship that challenged normative gender and sexual roles. Based on the conclusions of my analysis, I demonstrate that feminism continues to play a role in contemporary society.

  • The Diplomatic Art of Biography in Harold Nicolson's Works : Modernism Reconsidered from Auto/Biography

    MATSUNAGA Noriko

    Journal of the Graduate School of Humanities and Sciences   8号   95 - 102  2006.03  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    The diplomatic essays of Harold Nicolson (1886-1968) have been considered classics in the field of International Relations, while his biographical essays and fictions have largely been neglected by English literary critics. In a similar vein, poetry and fiction have dominated as subjects for analysis among the critics of modernism while autobiography and biography have been much less studied. Although the present literary studies largely disregard modernist biography and Nicolson, they were widely discussed and read among their contemporary biographers. For instance Virginia Woolf introduced Some People (1927) as a modern biography for the modern world, and appraised the new method that Nicolson created. This article attempts to reexamine modernism in terms of auto/biography, focusing on the new phase of biography Nicolson introduced. His auto/biography, which articulates war experiences as a postwar writing, is here analysed in diplomatic as well as biographical terms. In conclusion, I propose that he reproduce the new imperial citizenship through his new writing. Furthermore this essay also investigates the political unconscious of this period by the examination of biographical essays of Woolf and Sydney Lee as well as of Nicolson.
