An Alienated Female - On Laura in >Flowering Judas< [异化的女性——《开花的紫荆树》中的劳拉] [application of Fromm's theories to art]

  • >异化<是二十世纪西方现代文学的主题之一。许多作家在他们的作品里描述了现代人的这种异化感,揭示造成人的异化的种种因素,唤醒人们对它的认识。波特在《开花的紫荆树》里通过刻画异化的劳拉揭示了一个异化女性的生存困境,并运用弗洛姆的异化理论分析了劳拉与他人的关系的异化以及劳拉自我的异化。没有信仰没有爱失去自我,劳拉生活在与他人隔绝、充满绝望和死亡的精神荒原里,成了异化的>物<。
  • Alienation was one of the major themes in western modernist literature of the 20th century. Many writers have described modern people’s sense of alienation, revealed the reasons causing it, and thus awakened our consciousness of it. In >Flowering Judas< Katherine Anne Porter shows us an alienated woman’s existing dilemma through depicting Laura-the protagonist. This paper analyses alienation between Laura and other people, and that of herself. Without belief or love, Laura is living in an alienated world full of despair and death, and with a paralyzed self in the spiritual wasteland she has consequently become an >object<.
