ABSTRACT

Throughout Irish history - and especially in the years immediately following the Act of Union and the later ‘Troubles’ at the end of the twentieth century - writers have turned to the narrative of lovers from ‘across the divide’, in multiple permutations, to explore the complexities of the Anglo-Irish relationship. This article will focus on The Flower Master and Other Poems (1993), an early collection from the contemporary Belfast poet Medbh McGuckain. In explicating how a select number of these poems engaged with sexual intimacy, conflict, the afterlives of Seamus Heaney and the colonial romance trope, this article will elucidate how McGuckian's work is charged with a particular erotic energy. In The Flower Master, sexuality develops in the shadow of a complex history and contemporary political contexts, creating a poetics that writes the province's Troubled past as intimately interwoven with the pairing of sex, desire, and violent conflict. Ultimately, this article argues that McGuckian plays with the representational possibilities offered to her through the rhetoric of the colonial romance trope, suggesting that sexual desire itself is conditioned by the political conditions that shaped the province's difficult history.

'像蜜蜂的刺或子弹一样':色情,暴力和殖民浪漫史的来世,在梅德·麦古基(Medbh McGuckian)的《花卉大师和其他诗作》(1993)中

摘要

在整个爱尔兰历史上-尤其是在《联合法案》和紧接着的20世纪末“麻烦”之后的几年中,作家们从“跨越鸿沟”,多种排列的角度转向了恋人的叙事,以进行探索。英伊关系的复杂性。本文的重点是花样大师和其他诗歌》(1993),这是当代贝尔法斯特诗人梅德·麦卡金(Medbh McGuckain)的早期作品集。为了阐明这些诗中的一些是如何与性亲密,冲突,西莫斯​​·海尼的来世以及殖民地浪漫主义叙事有关的,本文将阐明麦加基安的作品是如何被赋予一种特殊的色情能量的。在花大师中,性生活是在复杂的历史和当代政治环境的阴影下发展的,创造了一种诗学,将全省的动乱过去与性,欲望和暴力冲突的结合紧密地交织在一起。最终,这篇文章认为,麦格奇恩(McGuckian)发挥着通过殖民地浪漫主义的言辞给她提供的代表性可能性,暗示性欲本身是由塑造该省艰难历史的政治条件所决定的。
