Heroism in Sexing the Cherry From Feminist Perspective ,英语论文从女性主义视角看《给樱桃以性别》中的英雄主义

Abstract From the feminist perspective, this thesis analyses images of heroes in Sexing the Cherry written by Jeanette Winterson. The parody of three classical tales recombined and nested into one in Sexing the Cherry, subverts heroic images in traditional literature, which takes a new look at heroes that were taken for granted before. Then, as Jordan, the protagonist of the novel, gets more experiences and becomes more mature psychologically, the notion of hero is changing and a true hero comes into view. Winterson gives a new definition of hero which is non-sexist. Through deconstruction and reconstruction of the heroic images, Winterson oversets the way to write in male-dominated society, praises femaleness and calls for confusing the distinction between men and women. For no one has studied Sexing the Cherry from the feminist perspective, the thesis opens a new world for the research of the novel. In addition, the people who get lost in modern society can be enlightened by the essay that ordinary people can live its best in ordinary life.55896

摘要本文从女性主义视角探讨珍妮特•温特森的小说《给樱桃以性别》中的英雄形象。温特森戏仿童话故事和希腊神话并把三个故事重组嵌套为一个故事,解构了经典故事中传统的英雄形象。随着男主人公约旦的成长、英雄观的改变,真正的英雄形象逐渐突显出来。温特森通过对英雄的解构与重构,颠覆了男权社会写作模式,颂扬女性特征,提倡对性别界限的模糊。到目前为止,尚无研究者从女性视角研究《给樱桃以性别》,因而本文的研究拓展了《给樱桃以性别》这部作品的研究维度。另外,那些在现代社会中迷失自我的人可从中得到启发:平凡的人在平凡的生活中也能活出精彩。

1. Introduction 

1.1 Jeanette Winterson and Her Works

Jeanette Winterson, an innovative and controversial writer, is famous for her breakthrough in lesbian feminist writings in the contemporary society. She is also favored for her poetic language, and ideas that combines science and metaphysics with myth and quest. It is the innovation in narrative techniques that wins her good reputation and awards. In addition, her special life experience contributes a lot to her distinctive writing style.

As we all know, Jeanette Winterson born in Manchester, England, was adopted by Pentecostal couples. There were only a few books in her house including the Bible and some books of religion. However, Jane Eyre was an exception. Her adoptive mother told her Jane’s story but falsified the ending—Jane married missionary Rivers and became a missionary too, which reflected her mother’s original intention—to bring her up for preach. It was the book that gave her courage to query authorities. It was unstable in school, but Winterson had got herself into a girls’ grammar school and then she entered Oxford University to study English. It was not an easy transition at all. Winterson fell in love with another girl and then left home at 16. While she took her A levels, she lived in a variety of places, supporting herself with part-time jobs. She even worked as a domestic in lunatic asylum once. 源'自:辣-味/论|文'网"]www.lwfree.com 从女性主义视角看《给樱桃以性别》中的英雄主义:http://www.lwfree.com/yingyu/lunwen_60261.html
