|제목||Problem of Self-Consciousness: A Study on John Keats’s Scotland Sonnets|
The aim of this study is to examine and analyze Keatss Scotland sonnets written during his Scotland walking tour which represents the turning point in his poetic career. For Keats, the tour had very complex motivation, background, and results. Especially the sonnets regarding Burns memorials in Scotland allegorize the crisis of his poetic identity. Keatss crisis of self-consciousness was intensified by his confronting the residence of William Wordsworth and the actual circumstances of Robert Burns. Keatss realization at Burnss memorials of entangled web of human miseries and aesthetic perceptions did not resolve the problem. Rather, it put him more deeply into the problem of self-consciousness.
