摘 要

《别让我走》 (Never Let Me Go) 是由日裔英国小说家石黑一雄撰写的一部反乌托邦科幻题材小说,书中描绘了克隆人的生存困境,特别是三位主人公凯茜、露丝和汤米在这个虚构社会中遭遇的故事。本文将从逃避主义的角度出发,通过揭露文中人物的两种不同逃避类型,探究造成他们一味逃避的根本原因,进而分析了克隆人们是如何应对监管者对他们的欺骗隐瞒,以及人类带给他们的心灵和肉体的伤害,同时,也剖析了监管人所面临的伦理困境,从而得出结论,尽管克隆人们终其一生都是采取着逃避的消极生存态度,但是我们仍然可以感受到为了能不留遗憾地过完他们短暂的一生,他们从未停止对于爱和友情的追求,他们勇敢地对抗着不断迫近的死亡事实,这引发了我们对于生死的深刻思考。

A Brief Analysis of Escapism in Never Let Me Go

  1. Introduction

Kazuo Ishiguro (born on 8th November 1954) is a Nobel-Prize-winning British novelist, screenwriter, and short story writer. Ishiguro is considered one of the most celebrated contemporary fiction authors in the English-speaking world, having received four Man Booker Prize nominations and winning the 1989 award for his novel The Remains of the Day. His seventh novel, The Buried Giant, was published in 2015. In 2017, the Swedish Academy awarded Ishiguro the Nobel Prize in Literature, describing him in its citation as a writer “who, in novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world”.

Never Let Me Go, as one of such representative short fictions, was published in 2005 and adapted into a movie in 2010, taking us along the transient life journey of the clone people by focusing on three main characters, namely, Tommy, Kathy and Ruth, with some interwoven sub-plots about love and friendship, reminiscence of the past as well as the fragility of human lives. Upon its publication, it has garnered much attention among the literary community. Previous critiques and reviews of Never Let Me Go from home and abroad have been focusing on the genre of this work, art of narration, analysis of the protagonists’ temperament, the ethnical morality as well as the universal themes buried in the disinterested narration.
