2009  Coleridge, Revision and Romanticism: After the Revolution, 1793-1818  単著  1076486 
Continuum  , その他  , 178  , 2009/11   

概要(Abstract) The Romantic phenomenon of multiple texts has been shaped by the link between revision and authorial intent. However, what has been overlooked are the profound implications of multiple and contradictory versions of the same text for a materialist approach; using the works of Coleridge as a case study and the afterlife of the French Revolution as the main theme, this monograph lays out the methodology for a more detailed multi-layered analysis. Scrutinising four works of Coleridge (two poems, a newspaper article and a play), where every major variant is read as a separate work with its own distinct socio-historical context, Ve-Yin Tee challenges the notion that any one text is representative of its totality. By re-reading Coleridge in the light of alternative textual materials within that time, he opens a wider scope for meaning and the understanding of Coleridge's oeuvre.

2008  Romantic Echoes in the Victorian Era  共著   
Ashgate  , その他  , 250 p.  , 2008/06   

概要(Abstract) Shifting emphasis away from Victorian writers' negotiations with individual Romantic poets and their work, chapter twelve considers the key role, already noted by Sarah Wootton in her essay, played by Victorian visual art in these cultural transactions of desire between Victorianism and Romanticism. Taking The Bathers (a painting by lesser known Victorian artist, Henry Scott Tuke) as his starting point, Ve-Yin Tee reconsiders, in 'Liberating Boyhood', the value and meaning of boyhood in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. First exhibited in 1889, Tuke's depiction of young male nudes signpost the historically and culturally contingent conceptions of boyhood with its (socially and sexually) ambiguous status which, Ve-Yin Tee claims, was further exacerbated by reliance on child labour in the early half of the nineteenth century. Even Wordsworth the great poetic advocate of the importance of boyhood, in his 'Ode: Intimations of Immortality' and The Prelude, was divided on the issue of the increasing number of children that comprised the labour force. Wordsworth, Ve-Yin Tee demonstrates, objected to children being set to toil in the factories and mills, but saw nothing wrong with child labour in the agricultural industries and open fields of rural communities. These ambivalences surrounding Wordsworth's and Coleridge's valorisation of the Romantic child were subsequently re-invented as the figure of the Victorian boy in Tuke's painting which can be, simultaneously, scrutinised as a condemnation of nineteenth-century child labour and an exemplar of a healthy and well-exercised boy--from his exertions in the mill or factory--for his social peers to emulate. The Romantic child's sexual androgyny was equally open to exploitation by some Victorian artists and writers that found in the reinvented figure of the Victorian boy a laudable means to bespeak their own unspoken homoerotic desires.  

備考(Remarks) I wrote chapter 12, 'Liberating Boyhood', pp. 191-208 (18 pages)

2014  The Unauthorized History of Singapore Shrine  単著   
AGON  , Messina University  , 3  , pp. 177-199  , 2014/12   

概要(Abstract) When the Japanese took Singapore from the British in 1942, they built a shrine in the middle of the island. It was called Syonan Jinja, which now lies in ruins. The cause of its destruction at the end of the Second World War remains in dispute. Some say that the Japanese burnt it down because they feared it would desecrated by the British; others say the British destroyed it as a mark of humiliation. While the site is officially recognized as being of historical
importance by the National Heritage Board, it has been left completely unmarked, undeveloped and unprotected. It is now visited by almost no one, owing to the dense, tropical rainforest around it and the reputation of the area as the haunt of ghosts and vampires. This paper is an examination of the afterlife of Syonan Jinja, or Singapore Shrine, and the place it occupies physically and culturally at edge of a highly developed city and the authorized historical record.

2011  A Less than Green and Pleasant Land; or, the Young Wordsworth's Environmentalism  単著   
Illuminazioni: Rivista di Lingua, Letteratura e Communicazione  , University of Messina  , 18  , pp. 3-27  , 2011/12   

概要(Abstract) The advocation of wild nature or pastoral living is a familiar stance in English Romantic writing. According to Samuel Taylor Coleridge, "we ... become the best possible [in] the country [when] all around us smile Good and Beauty". Yet, under the pressure to feed a growing urban population and to provide raw materials for a growing naval and mercantile armada, how good or beautiful was the "country" really? As Kenneth Johnston argues in his biography on Wordsworth, "Tintern Abbey" was triggered by the poet's shock at the adverse changes to the landscape the poet had been familiar with as a child. This article pursues a two-stage objective. First, through "Goody Blake and Harry Gill", which was published with "Tintern Abbey" in 1798, to highlight the environmental degradation and desperate class struggle that were preceding apace in the English countryside during the 1790s. Second, through a juxtaposition with "Lines Written in Early Spring", also published with "Tintern Abbey", to assess the politics of the disquietened young Wordsworth.

2006  Invasion and Subterfuge in 'Frost at Midnight'  単著   
NUCB Journal of Language, Culture and Communication  , Nagoya University of Commerce and Business  , 8/1  , pp. 103-118  , 2006/07   

概要(Abstract) Coleridge repeatedly revised 'Frost at Midnight' publishing different versions of the poem. The poem that is widely read today is actually the final version of 1829. This essay focuses instead on the neglected and very different first version of 1798. Where the 1829 version is meditative, the version of 1798 is political. Where the version of 1829 returns to the icicles forming in the darkness of a winter's night, in the version of 1798 the persona and his family leave their home to enjoy the breaking of a bright new day. Poems as published works are as much the expression of the individual as of the society for which they are produced, so, theoretically, Coleridge's revisions could be indicative as much of the changes to his ideological makeup as of his social context. My study intends to demonstrate how the 1790s engendered the very different poem of 1798, which begs the question: why do we persist in thinking of 'Frost at Midnight' when we should be thinking of 'Frost at Midnights'?

2016  Loving Trees  単独  2016/11/18 
Romantic Legacies  , National Chengchi University   

概要(Abstract) British people love trees. While generally seen as irreligious, historically, more interested in establishing trade than in building churches, many seem willing enough to shed their religious inhibitions for an old tree. The environmentalist, C. W. Nicol, relates his encounter as a young man with the Jomon Sugi of Yakushima forest in these terms: ‘I imagined that I could see an ancient face in the trunk, and my reaction … was to feel that this was no mere tree, but a deity’ (The Japan Times). ‘From mighty oaks to humble hazels, our sylvan treasures have never been more highly valued’ runs the byline of The Independent newspaper’s ‘Green Giants: Our Love Affair with Trees’, an article about the adoption in 2007 of a system for assigning actual monetary value to a tree, which has effectively ended the ‘chainsaw massacre’ of urban trees. Indeed, with record numbers of Britons planting saplings, the total area of land under forest is now approaching the 15% level that was reached back in 1086 (The Guardian).

But why do British people love trees? Though there are many reasons why all of us might love trees, one reason more applicable to British people than to the rest of us is because they have so few. Even at 15% forest cover, the country would still be far below the European average of 40%. Taking my audience briefly through some of the usual (e.g. Wordsworth and Bloomfield) and not-so-usual suspects (e.g. Blake and Gilbert White) of Green Romanticism, I will proceed to the dendrophilic works of two virtually unknown poets, Francis Noel Clarke Mundy and Sarah Johanna Williams. The aim is to distinguish a peculiarly Romantic dendrophilia, make connections with contemporary British dendrophilia, and illuminate the pleasures and perils of loving trees today.

2015  Contested Landscapes  単独  2015/04/23 
English and Modern Languages Research Seminar Series  , Oxford Brookes University   

概要(Abstract) This paper is part of a larger project to recover from the eighteenth century alternative ways of thinking about the environment. Consider: why is it when we conserve land today, we necessarily have to put a border around it and prohibit its use? It's even worse with historical buildings, when we would hesitate to leave our own homes unoccupied and unused for more than a few months. The land was never made quite as useless as it is now in the name of conservation, and why this might be the case will be explained with reference to the Leasowes, a landscape garden created by William Shenstone in the middle decades of the eighteenth century. Furthermore, through the very different experience conveyed by James Woodhouse--a labouring poet with a family background in England's ancient common field system--of the same land, and the plants, animals and people who lived on it, this paper ultimately seeks to highlight the problematic legacy of an environmentalism that is unable to reconcile conservation with use.

2015  Thinking Landscapes  単独  2015/03/29 
Kyoto Conference on Coleridge and Contemplation  , Kyoto Notre Dame University   

概要(Abstract) We, in the developed world, seem to have lost the ability to produce beautiful landscapes almost from the moment we learnt to appreciate it. Augustin Berque’s Thinking Through Landscape (2013) lays on the blame squarely at the door of the urban elites, the class to which Coleridge belonged, who, increasingly distanced from a practical engagement with the land, developed a literary and philosophical aesthetics that has led to the current environmental crisis. James Woodhouse, the shoemaker poet who observed the changes that were taking place across the West Midlands in the eighteenth century, offers the interesting alternative perspective of a working-class aesthetics of the land. The evidence furthermore suggests that he served as an ornamental hermit at the Leasowes, one of the celebrated prototypes of the English garden. Through the figure of Woodhouse as a spectacle of contemplation, and the design of the Leasowes Park as a site explicitly designed to encourage meditative reflection, I will attempt to tease out the social structures underpinning the act of contemplation and consider the circumstances under which it becomes damaging to human, animal and plant communities.

2014  The Unauthorized History of the Japanese Occupation  単独  2014/10/11 
「『記憶』の共有を目指して」第6回シンポジウム  , 南山大学   

概要(Abstract) When the Japanese took Singapore from the British, they built a shrine in the middle of the island. It was called Syonan Jinja, which now lies in ruins. Its purpose is in dispute, so is the cause of its destruction at the end of the war. It is now visited by almost no one, owing to the dense, tropical rainforest around it and the reputation of the area as the haunt of ghosts and vampires. This paper is an examination of the afterlife of Singapore shrine, which Singaporeans read about but never actually see, and the place it occupies in the periphery both of the authorized historical record and a highly developed city.

2012  Reading the Environment in Children's Literature  単独  2012/10/28 
日本英文学会中部支部第64回大会  , 南山大学   

概要(Abstract) Children's books offer me an accessible medium through which to teach students about the most serious social issues and the most difficult literary ideas. I will demonstrate this in two stages. First, to indicate how the politics of something as esoteric as biocentrism may be found across The Two Towers of J. R. R. Tolkien, The Iron Man by Ted Hughes, and Alan Moore's graphic novel The Watchman. Next, I will show how I have only required a single, 90-minute lecture to teach 1st and 2nd year students at Nanzan university about environmentalism in general and its connection to Dahl's James and the Giant Peach.

2011  Wordsworth and Natural Theology  単独  2011/10/29 
日本英文学会中部支部第63回大会  , 名古屋大学   

概要(Abstract) There is general agreement that The Excursion found "its most appreciative audience" in the middle decades of the nineteenth century. In 1837, the poem provided the occasion for one reviewer to notice "[the] long and scornful probation which Wordsworth has endured … till the heart of England has been in some measure converted to his poetical religion". By 1845, the sea change was accepted even by the cynical Thomas De Quincey, and he came to be referred to simply as "the great poet of the Excursion". Kenneth Johnston’s memorable description of the poem as that "Victorian epic" which Wordsworth "gave … to the Romantics", hints at the ideological dimension of the phenomenon. This paper examines more closely this correlation between poem and public that took place during the Victorian period. I will juxtapose Whewell’s Astronomy and General Physics Considered with Reference to Natural Theology (1833) with The Excursion and argue that natural theology was what brought the poem firmly into the ambit of the Victorians. I have been struck throughout by the coincidences between natural theology and environmentalism, on the one hand, and the coincidences between the Victorian mindset and ours on the other. My ultimate objective is to contribute to environmental thinking by revealing how our ecological consciousness has been both enabled and disabled by this formidable inheritance.

2011  The Moral Language of Nature  単独  2011/04/01 
Speaking Nature  , Pitzer College   

概要(Abstract) In the dedicatory preface to Astronomy and General Physics Considered with Reference to Natural Theology (1833), William Whewell, scientist, Anglican priest, philosopher and historian of science regretted his explication of the design of the universe in these terms:

"I feel most deeply, what I would take this occasion to express, that this, and all that the speculator concerning Natural Theology can do, is utterly insufficient for the great ends of Religion; namely, for the purpose of reforming men’s lives, of purifying and elevating their characters, of preparing them for a more exalted state of being."

It was a lament that was offered in the backdrop of an advancing sceptical empiricism, which William Wordsworth indicted in The Excursion (1814) for the deleterious effects of industrialization on the land, and on the people and the communities that depended on the land. The problem for Whewell was his failure to reach what he felt to be the moral basis to the phenomenal superstructure of the universe. In The Excursion Wordsworth confronted this veritable loss of compass in the figure of ‘the Wanderer’, who gives ‘Nature’ a moral language. Juxtaposing poem and Bridgewater treatise, this paper deals with Christian environmentalism, its contributions and contradictions that will ultimately be illuminating of blind spots of today’s intrinsically middle-class ecological consciousness.

2009  A Less than Green and Pleasant Land  単独  2009/10/04 
イギリス・ロマン派学会第35回全国大会  , 明星大学   

概要(Abstract) The insistence upon the benefit of pastoral living is a familiar trope in English Romantic expression. As Coleridge wrote in 1795, ‘we … become the best possible [in] the country [when] all around us smile Good and Beauty’. Yet, under the pressure to feed a growing urban population and to provide the raw materials for a growing naval and mercantile armada, how good or beautiful was the ‘country’ really? As Kenneth Johnston argues in his controversial biography on Wordsworth, ‘Tintern Abbey’ was triggered by the poet’s shock at the adverse changes to the landscape he had been familiar with as a child. Through ‘Goody Blake and Harry Gill’ and ‘Lines Written in Early Spring’, both published with ‘Tintern Abbey’ in 1798, I will highlight the environmental degradation that was proceeding apace in the English countryside.

研究内容(Research Content) The aim of this proposed collaboration between Kuri Katsuyama (Kyoto University of Art and Design), Kazuyoshi Oishi (Tokyo University) and I is to work out a framework for understanding British eighteenth century environmental consciousness, not so much on its own terms (which is objectively impossible), but in dialogue with environmentalism in such a way that does not ignore their different historical contexts. Practically, the work done on this project would complete the necessary groundwork for a future book project on environmental aesthetics. Separately, and more immediately, the work done by us should not only contribute toward the study of the eighteenth century, but also enrich environmental thinking, by investigating its sometimes forgotten eighteenth-century genealogy.
