摘 要

《外婆家的日用家当》是黑人女作家艾丽丝·沃克早期的短篇小说。故事讲述了因为对手工被子的不同观点而引发的家庭矛盾;一方面,代表传统黑人妇女的母亲和小女儿麦琪将被子作为日常家用;而另一方面,受过良好教育的大女儿迪伊认为传统的手工被子应该作为一种装饰物用来欣赏。小说的创作背景正是黑人运动的高潮时期,不难看出作者作为黑人女性作家,对解放黑人运动的关心。 本文旨在分析在当时的背景下,黑人美国梦的双重性。处于那个时代的美国黑人既想融入美国的白人社会,又想保持者本民族的文化传统,处于一种两难的境地。本文分为五个部分:第一部分介绍小说创作背景及作者生平;第二部分从两个层面、三个维度分析了小说中的三位女主人公;第三部分分析了文章的主题,在特定的社会环境下黑人美国梦的双重性,他们既想全然融入白人社会又要坚持本民族的文化传统;第四部分总结全文,并对如何传承文化提出了启示。

关键词:文化传承;冲突;民族意识;双重性
