On the Construction of New Chinese American Female Identity in The Woman Warrior,英語論文湯婷婷《女勇士》華裔女性新身份

Abstract The Woman Warrior: Memoirs of a Girlhood among Ghosts is the award-winning and the first published work of Maxine Hong Kingston, one of the most representative female writers in the 20th century Chinese American literary circles. As a complex portrayal of Chinese American life in the 20th century, The Woman Warrior is considered to be a milestone of Chinese American literature. This paper aims to provide an interpretation about how Maxine Hong Kingston manages to find a breakthrough in terms of gender, race and culture in order to help Chinese American women to construct a new identity. Firstly, Maxine Hong Kingston is trying to seek equality with men via two contrastive female images, No Name Woman and Mulan, and points out that “androgyny” can be the effective solution to building gender identity. Secondly, by means of the narrator’s experience, she notes that it is to actively integrate into American culture that can help Chinese American female subvert their own “other” status and construct their racial identity. Thirdly, to get out of the dilemma of the conflicts from Chinese tradition and American culture and to build their own cultural identity, she presents an example of Ts’ai Yen, a Chinese poetess who is good at using the power of art to liberate herself. Through The Woman Warrior, Maxine Hong Kingston declares that Chinese American female should rely on their own efforts to recover their dignity and construct their new identity of gender, race and culture.35212

摘要《女勇士——一段鬼影憧憧下的少女回憶》是湯亭亭出版的第一部作品,也是她的成名作和代表作。由于真實地反映了20世紀華裔美國人的生活,《女勇士》被認為是華裔文學的一個里程碑,在20世紀美國華裔文學界占有重要的地位。本文著重分析湯亭亭如何在性別、種族和文化方面尋找突破,幫助美國的華裔女性構建新的身份。首先,為了追求男女平等,湯亭亭試圖通過兩個具有對比性的女性形象——無名女人和花木蘭,指出“雌雄同體”是幫助華裔女性構建新的性別身份的有效途徑。其次,她借助小說敘述者的經歷,說明積極融入美國文化能夠幫助華裔女性顛覆自己的“他者”的地位,以構建自己的種族身份。第三,湯亭亭運用蔡琰的例子,一個善于用藝術的力量解放自己的中國女詩人來幫助華裔女性走出中國傳統和美國文化的雙重影響的困境,并構建自己的文化身份。通過《女勇士》,湯亭亭證明了華裔女性可以依靠自己的努力來重獲尊嚴和構建她們的新的性別、種族和文化身份。

 On the Construction of New Chinese American Female Identity in The Woman Warrior
Introduction
Maxine Hong Kingston is one of the most important female writers in Chinese American literary circles during the 20th century. She has written three novels and several works of non-fiction about the experiences of Chinese immigrants living in the United States. She has received several awards for her achievements including the National Book Award for Nonfiction in 1981 for China Men. Shirley Geok-lin Lim regards that, “Kingston aims to reconstruct the Chinese American female subjectivity in a way that would give themselves the ability of imaging possibilities through continuous namings of female presence.”(Lim 261) 湯婷婷《女勇士》華裔女性新身份:http://www.aftnzs.live/yingyu/20190505/33063.html
