摘要

《无声告白》是近期华裔文学的一部典型作品,故事发生在20世纪七十年代的美国俄亥俄州,主要描写了一个由华裔男子和白人女性组成的跨种族家庭里发生的悲剧故事。(伍绮诗 2-3)本文将研究对象限定为美籍华裔女性作家伍琦诗及其文本《无声告白》,运用芝加哥学派代表人物帕克和贝尼特的边缘人理论,分析《无声告白》中的边缘人生存所遭遇的关于身份焦虑,种族隔离,家庭压力等问题。由于边缘人一直都是华裔女性文学中不可或缺的一类人物形象,因而,通过分析华裔女性作家伍琦诗关于边缘人形象的解读,有利于读者了解美国华裔文学的发展现状和二十世纪七十年代美国社会中边缘人的生存困境。

本文共分为以下三个部分:第一部分介绍了《无声告白》,伍琦诗和边缘人的定义。此外,本文还将整理国内外相关评论和研究,说明本文的意义和目的。同时,本文将对边缘人的定义、发展和特征进行阐述;第二部分将详细分析《无声告白》的主要特征,分析70年代美国社会边缘人的生活困境;第三部分阐述边缘人在美国华裔文学中的形象特征。
