『리라 아포스톨리카』를 통해서 본 존 헨리 뉴먼의 소책자시학

This essay analyzes John Henry Newman’s poetics through his poems, particularly, in Lyra Apostolica which was a compilation of poems contributed by the members of the Oxford Movement in the 19th century in England. Newman was the main advocate of the movement and played an important role to develop the Tractarian poetics. However, Newman’s poems featured his own view of nature which was entirely different from that of the typical Romantic and Tractarian poems which were frequently regarded as an analogy of the Sacred. He considered nature a sort of obstacle to his achieving focus on religious Truth, which means his poems took a significant step to Victorianism. Newman’s self was isolated from the larger world and had only himself as its counterpart—which can be seen in ‘Nothingness of Matter’ and ‘Melchizedek.’ His God was ‘up there in a different world’ like the archetype found in Victorian literature. Newman, however, strived for his lonely self to have an encounter with God. For this, he determined to continue his gradual forward march through the conviction of his will and the will of God as described in ‘Light in the Darkness.’ This may be the first of an isolated Victorian self trying to connect itself to the unseen Victorian God in the history of Victorian religious poetry.
