摘要《纯真年代》是伊迪丝•华顿荣获美国普利策文学奖的文学作品,描述了男权统治下的老纽约社会中的女性遭遇。本文试图以小说的三个主要人物作为切入口,通过分析作品中的人物和他们的对话,以及生活状态来找到女性主义的存在。小说的背景是男权社会下的老纽约,本文着重剖析了女性在这种社会状态下的生存现状;借助文本的例证来透析老纽约社会下的女性主义。
整篇论文分为五部分。第一章简要介绍了伊迪斯•华顿的生活经历,有关她的作品和相关评论,以及本文所采用的女性主义的相关理论,本章也一一作了粗略的介绍;第二章主要分析了独立女性艾伦试图摆脱不幸的婚姻回到纽约寻求帮助,却被老纽约的人视为另类;第三章主要聚焦于作为传统女性的梅,她表面上天真纯洁,实则颇有心计,不但对老纽约顺从,而且也无视自己的内心世界;第四章写了这段三角恋中的男主人公纽兰,他表面思想开明,支持女性追求自己的新生活和新想法,实际上却是男权社会的忠实拥护者;最后一章得出结论,男权社会对女性的捆绑颇深,尽管女性意识开始出现,但这种意识落地生根仍需持之以恒的努力与奋斗。14183
