LET KAO METAFORA U ROMANU TONI MORISON “SONG OF SOLOMON”

Aleksandra M. Izgarjan

Apstrakt


Članak se bavi analizom metafore leta u romanu Toni Morison Song of Solomon. Autorka koristi legendu o afričkim robovima koji su mogli da lete kako bi naglasila dualnost metafore leta i njenu subverzivnu ulogu koja omogućava različite interpretacije. Kompleksnost metafore leta u romanu Toni Morison zahteva upotrebu nekoliko književno-teorijskih okvira tako da će se u članku koristiti okvir magijskog realizma, praksa marginalizacije i označavanja pripadnika manjinskih grupa kao Drugog onako kako se tom temom bavio Edvard Said u svom delu Orijentalizam i Jungov koncept arhetipa i putovanja mitskog heroja. Fokus članka je posebno na korišćenju magijskog realizma i spajanju master narativa zapadne civilizacije sa legendama koje potiču iz afroameričke zajednice kako bi se preispitao process konstrukcije istorije i zajednice. Morison u prvi plan stavlja univerzalnost leta kao jednog od ljudskih impulsa koji može da se nađe i u zapadnoj, afričkoj i afroameričkoj kulturi čime pruža validnost svojim likovima i njihovoj sposobnosti da lete.
