- 본 논문은 Eliot의 초기시에 쓰인 irony의 기교를 고찰하고자 한다. 이 기교를 통하여 Eliot는 현대사회의 삶을 직시하여 삶을 있는 그대로 제시하고 있다. 그는 삶의 부정적 양상을 회피하는 것이 아니라 부정을 통한 긍정의 양상으로 나아가고자 시도하고 있다.
This paper is aimed to study the function of irony in Eliot's Prufrock and Other Observations, in which Eliot tries to portray as hero the man who feels a sense of his own inadequacy and impotence, and who is painfully aware of the banality and futility of his life in the modern city. Irony in literature is technique not only of saying as little and meaning as much as possible, but also of representing exactly and objectively what life is. Irony's basic function of broadening meaning is related to the basic idea of Eliot's own historical sense, through which Eliot represents a new awareness of reality beyond a personal experience. In Eliot, various allusions to literature are part of his view of the historical sense. The poets who have left the deepest and most lasting mark on Eliot's own work ark Donne, Dante and Laforgue. One thing common to Donne and Dante is the firm grasp of human experience and existence. What Eliot strives to devise is a medium of expression that corresponds to the felt intrcacy of human existence, that is, simple style, conceit, objective correlative, etc. Eliot learns from Laforgue some sensible techniques for disguising personal feeling and emotions: ironic detachment and dramatic monologue. But Laforguian heroes do not present a way of solving their conflicts. They only intensify the unreconcilable point of view in the double vision of irony. Eliot saves himself from the predicament by making it the object of detached analysis.
