『교수의 집』에 나타난 세인트 피터 교수의 “마음의 이산” 연구

변효정

(대진대학교)

This study focuses on St. Peter’s diaspora of mind occurring in his heart apart from the existing diaspora such as migration among places, return to homeland, racial and class hostility etc. by diversifying the meaning of modern diaspora. In the process of St. Peter overcoming his inner diasporic situation caused by his materialistic family members and new house, he as a resident alien, feels a sense of victimization and a sense of loss, so tries to rest in the old house as a kind of exile recalling constantly Tom, his spiritual refuge. In the reality of double life, St. Peter is eager to escape from the life of adrifting among family, community, and the new house. However, in the respect that modern diaspora pursues a harmonious fusion of community, St. Peter needs to get unity in diversity and be self-renewed. So, in the end, having had a near-death experience in the old house, he reaches the epiphany of the present as a total break from the messy past. After a close shave with death, he as an abject encounters indeed an inchoate one to achieve inner transformation for a brighter future and suggest the vistas of modern diaspora.
