『타르 베이비』에 나타난 식민화와 탈식민화의 역설

공명수

(대진대학교)

This paper aims in analysing the diverse vision contained in the paradox of colonialism and postcolonialism, exploring the multiplicity of the disparate meanings immanent in Tar Baby myth. The Tar Baby tale as a metaphor of entrapment has one meaning for Jadine and another for Son, as this ambivalence becomes the focus of Toni Morrison’s interest in the tale as a repository of the different cultural identities. Jadine and Son attack each other missionary fervor for their own ideology in Caribbean island and New York. As Son struggles to free her from servitude to Valerian, an exploitative capitalist system, Jadine appears as committed to rescue Son from the racial and sexual hierarchy that she identifies in Eloe, all-black rural community. When Jadine takes flight for Paris, Son retreats into to seek another opportunity for his ongoing quest. As Son finds the path of his inner self, Jadine is creating for self-fulfillment as a means of achieving whole freedom. Though their relationship ends in separation, the paradox of colonialism and postcolonialism that characterizes their conflicts of race, sex, and class results in triggering the diverse vision of consciousness.
