《喜福会》两代美籍华裔身份认同的冲突与和解 Conflict and Reconciliation between Two Generations of Chinese Americans over Identity in The Joy Luck Club毕业论文

摘 要

华裔美国文学由美国华人的移民历史而产生,随着20世纪70年代一大批优秀的华裔作家涌现文坛,处于边缘化的华裔美国文学开始登上主流美国文学的舞台,并逐渐被认可。在华裔美国文学中,身份认同问题作为一个永恒的主题一直被反复提及。

谭恩美作为一名具有双重文化身份的美籍华裔作家的典型代表,在1989年发布的处女作长篇小说《喜福会》一经面市便产生热烈反响。该小说描写了四位性格、命运各异,抛弃国难家仇,移居美国的中国女性,以及她们出生并成长在美国的女儿们间的情感故事。国内目前有众多关于《喜福会》的相关研究。其主要解读的是小说中的母女关系,很少关注美籍华裔对其身份的认同冲突与和解。而本论文的创新点在于:第一,联系现实,揭示了两代美籍华裔关于身份认同的问题并不是老问题,而是新的而且紧急的问题。第二,作者提出了关于如何和解身份认同冲突的三个方法。

本文分为五个部分。第一部分对作者谭恩美及《喜福会》作简短介绍。第二部分分别描述书中展现的四对母女之间关于身份认同的冲突。第三部分从个人、家庭、社会三方面分析构成母女两代华裔冲突的原因。第四部分描写如何能解除冲突达到和解。最后一部分是全文总结,指出《喜福会》在现实中对美籍华裔身份认同的影响。

关键词:《喜福会》;身份认同;美籍华裔;冲突;和解

Abstract

Chinese American literature is generated by the history of Chinese American immigrants. With the emergence of a large number of outstanding Chinese American writers in the 1970s, marginalized Chinese American literature began to enter the stage of mainstream American literature and was gradually recognized. In Chinese American literature, issues over identity have been repeatedly mentioned as an eternal theme.

Amy Tan, as a representative of a dual cultural identity of the Chinese American writers, published her saga novel The Joy Luck Club as a maiden work in 1989. The novel describes the emotional stories between the four Chinese women with different characters and different fates that abandoned the national calamity and family hatred and moved to the United States and their daughters who were born and grew up in the United States. There are a large number of researches on The Joy Luck Club. Those researches focus on the relationship between mother and daughter, paying little attention to conflict and reconciliation between two generations of Chinese Americans over identity. This paper has two innovative points. One is the paper contacts reality and announces that conflict between two generations of Chinese Americans over identity is not an old issue but also a new and urgent issue. Another one is that the author put forward three ways of reconciliation.

This paper consists of five parts. The first part is a brief introduction of the author Amy Tan and The Joy Luck Club. The second part describes the conflicts over identity in the relationships of the four mothers and daughters in the book. The third part analyzes the causes of the conflict between two generations from three aspects: person, family and society. The fourth part explains how to resolve the conflict to reach a settlement. The final part is a summary of the full text, pointing out the realistic meaning of The Joy Luck Club over identity of Chinese Americans.
