摘 要

《蝴蝶梦》是英国作家达夫妮·杜穆里埃的成名作,主要讲述了一位无名的叙述者“我”与曼德利庄园的男主人迈克西姆婚后的故事。一方面叙述者沉迷于曼德利庄园的自然美景之中,而另一方面,她的生活不仅生活在前女主人吕蓓卡的阴影中,而且还要受到来自丈夫以及社会的压迫。本文旨在从生态女性主义的视角对小说中突出的女性形象加以分析,主要是从女性与自然,女性与男性,以及女性与社会的关系这三方面来进行论述的,探讨了作者对于女性与自然关系的看法以及如何在小说中批判父权社会和规范对女性的压迫。

An Ecofeminist Analysis of Women Characters in Rebecca

  1. Introduction

Daphne Du Maurier (May 13, 1907-April 19, 1990) was an English novelist and playwright, often classified as a romanticist writer. She was deeply influenced by the Gothic Novel in the Nineteenth Century whose main features were mysterious and horrible. At the same time, she also studied and imitated the Bronte sisters’ novel writing techniques. Besides, she was a member of the Royal Society of Literature and was awarded the Lady’s Medal of the British Empire in 1969. She disliked urban life and lived in Cornwall which was on the Atlantic coast of southwestern England for a long time. Many of her works were set in accordance with Cornwall’s customs, and thus also called “Cornish novels”.

The novel Rebecca (1938) was one of Daphne Du Maurier’s most successful and best-selling works. In 1939, she won the National Book Award for Favourite Novel in America. And in 2000, Rebecca was acclaimed as “The 20th Century Best Novel” of Anthony Awards, which was the highest honor of mystery novels. She also wrote many excellent works, such as Jamaica Inn (1936), Frenchman’s Creek (1941), The King’s General (1946) and My Cousin Rachel (1951), etc.
