駱以軍(1967-)為台灣備受矚目的作家。他於1993年開始創作小說,至今已20餘年。然而,學者多集中討論其名作《西夏旅館》(2008)及其作為外省第二代的身份認同議題。關於駱氏的其他(尤其早於《西夏旅館》的)作品的討論則相對零散。駱父於2004年去世。在這之前的作品裡,「父親」反覆出現,尤其是《月球姓氏》(2000)和《遠方》(2003),當中的父親可謂成為了駱書寫主題裡的重要板塊。文本裡,父子間的關係既尷尬又微妙,甚至暗含了弒父衝動。直至《我未來次子關於我的回憶》(2005),駱氏才與「父親」這主題告別。「父親」於其作品中擔任重要角色,現有研究多只在討論國族身份時一併論之,未有學者對此作出深入、獨立的研究。是次演說將單獨剖析駱氏父子間關係。首先聚焦《月球姓氏》,追溯駱氏弒父衝動的形成;然後探究駱氏如何以《遠方》這一文本作弒父的嘗試;最後分析《我未來次子關於我的回憶》如何為弒父掙扎提供出口。藉由將視角轉向到文本中的個人心理分析,此演說為現有的國族身份主導的駱氏研究提供新的切入點,跳出族群集體層面的框架。另外,「父親」乃研究駱氏心理分析不可略過的一環,希望此演說可為日後相關研究起拋磚引玉之效。

Luo Yijun (b.1967) is an acclaimed Taiwanese writer who has been writing novels for more than 20 years. Scholars to date tend to concentrate mainly on his renowned Tangut Inn and his background as a second-generation mainlander writer. Consequently, research on his other books are quite limited in quantity and remain scattered, especially that about Luo’s early works written before Tangut Inn. Luo’s father passed away in 2004. Before that, “father” is always one of the motifs and is especially important in Family of the Moon (2000) and In the Distance (2003). Luo did not stop using this motif until My Future Second Son’s Memories of Me (2005). The relationship between Luo and his father was embarrassing and subtle. Patricidal tension could even be found in Luo’s creative works. Given that “father” plays an important role in Luo’s works and this role has not been studied independently and thoroughly, this talk will focus on the relationship between Luo and his father. It will first trace the formation of the patricidal tension by analysing the novel Family of the Moon. It will then examine Luo’s attempt of patricide in In the Distance. Finally, it will discuss how My Future Second Son’s Memories of Me provides a solution to the patricidal tension. By shifting the perspective from the ethnic, collective level to personal psychological level, this talk offers a new breakthrough point to existing scholarship on Luo. Furthermore, “father” is a part that cannot be neglected when doing psychoanalysis of Luo. This talk aims to pave the way for future research on Luo.

ALL ARE WELCOME!
