摘 要

当一个国家或地区处于社会转型时期,社会环境变得与以往不同,新的文化及思想观念出现在人们生活中,而年轻一代对过去的观念有一种强烈的个人意识和反叛精神,并试图他们的自我意识寻找一个出口,甚至不顾与社会道德观念相矛盾。美国短篇小说《Aamp;P》由当代作家约翰·厄普代克创作于二十世纪六十年代的社会变革时期,新思想影响着以主人公萨米代表的青年一代,导致青年与传统社会道德观念的冲突。

本文从社会转型的视角出发,以小说《Aamp;P》为例,探索青年自我意识与社会道德观念之间的撞击,旨在为小说《Aamp;P》的研究提供新的视角,并对青年人的发展提供有益的借鉴和启示。全文分为五个章节,第一章简要介绍约翰·厄普代克和《Aamp;P》的主要情节,阐释青年自我意识与社会道德观等相关概念。第二章站在社会转型的视角,从个人与社会需要的冲突、理想与现实的分歧等方面探讨撞击产生的原因。第三章分析《Aamp;P》中青年自我意识与道德观念的冲突在思想和行为两方面的具体表现。第四章说明撞击的结果,并对青年人提出相关建议。最后一章总结全文。

Abstract

During the period of social transformation, social circumstance is dissimilar from the past days. Advanced culture and concepts emerge in people’s daily life, while young generation always have strong self-awareness and rebel at the outdated thoughts, trying to find an exit of self-awareness, even being against the social common moral values. American short story Aamp;P was created by John Updike in the 1960s when American was in the period of social transformation. New thoughts influenced the protagonist Sammy as the representative of the younger generation, resulting in the conflicts between the young generation and traditional social moral values.

This paper takes Aamp;P as an example to study the collision between youth self-awareness and social moral values from the perspective of social transformation, aiming at providing a new angle of view to study the novel Aamp;P, as well as giving the beneficial reference and enlightenment to youth development. It includes five chapters. The first chapter gives a brief introduction to John Updike and the main plot of Aamp;P, explains the youth self-awareness, social moral values and the related concepts. The second chapter explores the causes of the collision in the aspect of individual needs vs. social demands and the idealism vs. realism from the perspective of social transformation. The third chapter analyzes the manifestation of the collision in Aamp;P, including the ideological collisions and the behavioral collisions. The fourth chapter illustrates the result of the collision, as well as puts forward some practical suggestions for the youth. The last chapter is a summary.

The Collision between Youth Self-awareness and Social Moral Values from the Perspective of Social Transformation: A Case Study of A amp; P

1 Introduction

John Updike and Aamp;P

John Updike was one of the most famous and the greatest American writers in the 20th century. He was born in Shillington, Pennsylvania, graduated from Harvard and then joined the staff of the New Yorker and served the magazine in a number of capacities until 1957; he continues to contribute verse, reviews, and fiction to its pages. Updike published more than twenty novels, as well as other literary output including poetry, short-story collections, art and literary criticism during his career. His most famous work is his “Rabbit” series (the novels Rabbit, Run(1960); Rabbit Redux(1971); Rabbit Is Rich(1981); Rabbit at Rest(1990); and the novella Rabbit Remembered). His stories have been collected in Pigeon Feathers and Other Stories(1962), The Music School(1966), Problem and Other Stories(1979).

His works mainly pertain to society, life, sex and religion, revealing the subtle and complicated relationships between human and society. Updike always notices the educational function of his works deliberately or inadvertently. His articles have exquisite depictions of the character’s inner world and the external environment, precise phrases and exact revelation of the subject as well. His basic view is the case that the process of writing is also a process of education. (Gao, 2002:69-71). Each of his novel’s central theme is a difficult moral question, and a debate on morality with his readers, including his most popular short story–Aamp;P.
