Abstract

Bu makalenin amacı, Wilkie Collins’in Beyazlı Kadın başlıklı romanında görmenin ve gözün oynadığı kritik rolü irdelemek ve bu tartışmayı on dokuzuncu yüzyılın göze/görmeye dair oküler dinamikleri ve sansasyon romanının jenerik özellikleri bağlamına yerleştirmektir. Collins’in görmek ve bilmek edimleri arasında kurduğu kavramsal eşdeğerlik, iktidar ilişkilerinin görme/göz üzerinden nasıl işlediği dikkate alınarak tartışılacaktır. Dolayısıyla, Beyazlı Kadın’ın skopik unsurları tarihsel ve teorik bağlama yerleştirilerek mercek altına alınacak, romanın görünürlük ve görünmezlik halleriyle örülü semiosferi görme ve oküler iktidar arasındaki dinamik ilişkiyle şekillenen bir etkileşim ve çatışma alanı olarak okunacaktır.

Ocular Poetics of Wilkie Collins’s The Woman in White

Year 2024, Issue: Special Issue: Wilkie Collins, 21 - 31, 28.01.2024

Abstract

The aim of this article is to explore the critical role of vision and act of seeing in the poetics of Wilkie Collins’s The Woman in White in the context of the ocular dynamics of the nineteenth-century in general and the generic markers of the sensation novel in particular. The conceptual equivalence Collins builds between the agencies of seeing and knowing will be explored by paying particular attention to the ways in which power is exercised on the axis of the modality of the visual. Taking visibility and invisibility as the controlling agencies in The Woman in White, the discussion will focus on exploring the scopic aspects of the novel in its historical and theoretical context, and reading the semiosphere of the novel as a dynamic space of interaction between and vision and ocular power.
