摘 要

《到十九号房》是多丽丝·莱辛的一部短篇小说,该作品风格沿袭了他一贯擅长的空间意象描写。作品中主人公苏珊·罗林斯的心理发展历程是推动小说情节发展的主要动力。小说讲述了为了获得自由,主人公追求不同的房间意象来逃避现实中的人和物,最终,在十九号房了结了自己的生命。就本质而言,现实社会中家庭主妇的角色丧失了生活的激情,这种不公平的社会地位否定了苏珊的生存意义,导致了她悲剧性的结局。本文将运用空间理论中自己和他人的对立、冲突来解读《到十九号房》,进而证明在男权社会下女性意识的觉醒,以及现代社会中人们之间的冷漠,缺失交流,孤独会导致无法避免的悲剧。

关键词:多丽丝·莱辛;《到十九号房》;空间意象;心理路程;女权意识;
