摘 要

达芙妮·杜穆里埃是英国最伟大的女作家和剧作家之一,另一位著名的英国作家E.M.福斯特高度评价她时说没有人能复制达芙妮·杜穆里埃的成功– 即打破通俗小说和纯文学之间的界限,让他的作品同时满足这两种文学的所有需求。 《丽贝卡》出版于1938年,是杜穆里埃最成功的作品之一。本书中女二号丽贝卡长久以来被视为“蛇蝎女性”的代表并一直为评论家所批判。然而本文认为就像每个硬币都有两面一样,每个人都有他的优点和缺点,因此丽贝卡不会完全是一个反面角色。本文将抛弃对丽贝卡的陈见,从德温特夫人的叙述中分析丽贝卡的行为和思想,以此挖掘出这个像幽灵一样徘徊在曼多丽庄园的女人更真实的一面。

Abstract

Daphne du Maurier, one of the greatest female English authors and playwrights, was highly valued by another famous English writer E.M.Foster. He praised that no one else can repeat the success of Daphne du Maurier , that is to say, she breaks the line between popular fiction and pure literature, and makes her works meet all demands of these two kinds of literature at the same time. Du Maurier’s work Rebecca was published in 1938 and it is one of Du Maurier’s most successful works. For a long time critics see a female character Rebecca in this book as an evil who is wearing human skin. However, just as every coin has its both sides, every human has his virtues and blemishes. Thus Rebecca will not be a totally villain. This paper focuses on Mrs. De Winter’s narration to analyze Rebecca’s actions and thoughts, in order to dig up a more real characteristic of this woman who is hovering around Manderley like a ghost, and attempts to abandon the stereotype about Rebecca and analyzes her image in a new way.
