『동물원 이야기』: 커밍아웃의 시도
A Trial of Coming Out: The Zoo Story
This Paper examines the issues of nonstraight's visibility, homosexual identity, gay desire, and nonstraight performativity. Sexual prejudice remains widespread but heterosexual attitudes toward nonstraights has become somewhat more accepting in recent years. We too, after all, are open to the possibility of sexuality. Clearly, the word queer has a range of meanings in literary studies today. This use includes the following; Gay self-hatred and initiation, coming out, dealing with homophobia and with heterosexualist discrimination, and the destruction of heterosexual family system. I reread the text of Albee with queer criticism, relying on similar kinds of textual evidence as well as Albee's biographical evidence. Queer reading of Edward Albee's works might examine how the playwright's gay sensibility requires us to expand our understanding of the sexuality. Thus, I can conclude that Albee insinuates as well as suggests that to change the society, we should broaden our limit of prejudice, and use positive effort to understand another different sexuality-sexual orientation. Queer criticism promises us an exciting future of theoretical exploration and experimentation.
