摘 要

T.S.艾略特是英国著名诗人、剧作家和文学批评家、现代派诗歌领袖,代表作有《荒原》、《四个四重奏》等。《J.阿尔弗雷德·普鲁弗洛克的情歌》是他早期的诗作。诗作中,他选取了众多意象,引用了大量典故来表现工业文明下现代人的生存状态。本文将诗中的典型意象分为非人意象与人的意象来进行分析。非人意象包括街道、黄雾、水池、时间、桃子和幻灯;人的意象包括女人、施洗者约翰、傻瓜、拉萨路和美人鱼。其中,街道、黄雾、水池、时间、女人、施洗者约翰、傻瓜是诗作的主人公普鲁弗洛克的世界中真实存在的却令他想要逃避的意象;桃子、幻灯、拉萨路、美人鱼是普鲁弗洛克渴望追求却求而不得的意象。

艾略特将他的主题思想通过普鲁弗洛克的情歌表达了出来。通过一系列看似没有逻辑的意象,艾略特将以普鲁弗洛克为代表的现代人的情感精神危机表现得淋漓尽致。诗作中,无意义的时间,没有方向,没有信仰,希望幻灭使人们的精神非常痛苦,构成了一个死气沉沉的精神荒原。诗人通过丰富多彩的写作手法表达了对西方现代社会的批判以及对人类精神世界的关注。

Abstract

  1. S. Eliot is a famous English poet, playwright, literary critic and modernist poetry leader. His masterpieces include The Waste Land, Four Quartets, etc. “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” is his early poem. In this poem, he chooses many images and quotes a large number of allusions to represent modern people’s living conditions under industrial civilization. This paper divides the typical images in the poem into non-human images and human images for analysis. Non-human images include streets, yellow fog, poll, time, peach and magic lantern; human images include the women, John the Baptist, the Fool, Lazarus and mermaid. In these images, streets, yellow fog, poll, time, the women, John the Baptist and the Fool are the present images that the poem’ s main character Prufrock wants to escape from; peach, magic lantern, Lazarus and mermaid are the absent images that Prufrock wants to pursue but fails to make it.

Eliot expresses his theme through Prufrock’ s love song. Through a series of seeming illogical images, TS Eliot demonstrates the spiritual crisis of modern people represented by Prufrock incisively and vividly. In this poem, meaningless time, disorientation, faithlessness, disillusionment make people’s spirit very painful and constitute a dead spiritual wasteland. Eliot uses various writing techniques to criticize modern western society and shows great concern about human beings’ spiritual world.

Key Words: T.S.Eliot; image; disillusionment; meaninglessness
