Abstract


THE (IM)POSSIBILITY OF PASTORAL ESCAPE IN KATHERINE MANSFIELD’S SOMETHING CHILDISH BUT VERY NATURAL AND MUSTAFA KUTLU’S 5402
One of the concerns of modernist literature is the dualism between city and nature. In most of modernist literary texts, the countryside as a place of tranquillity and relaxation stands in stark contrast to the city in which the new advent of technology is presented. Emerging technological transformation provide a setting to depict an individual who is in conflict with modern environment. Together with modernism, this conflict is given voice strikingly for a comparison between nature and city for artistic expression. Especially the possibility of returning and/or escape into nature, past and childhood is explored. In this respect, Katherine Mansfield’s Something Childish But Very Natural and Mustafa Kutlu’s 5402 are stories which reflect an opposing attitude towards the city and explore the (im) possibility of pastoral retreat. Such a concern is also determined by cultural construction of nature which offers both similar and different vision of pastoral. This study aims to show the (im)possibility of the pastoral escape in the stories on question by focusing on what kind of a pastoral environment is created and how it is perceived in these texts. Accordingly, the similar and different vision of pastoral in the stories will be illuminated.
