摘要:二十世紀中國小說裡最主要最成功的文學形象,是知識分子,農民和幹部官員。「士官民」三者之間的複雜矛盾關係,不僅貫穿在上世紀「革命文學」主題之中,也支配著百年小說的各種變化發展。從這個角度閱讀張愛玲在香港創作的中英文小說《秧歌》,我們可以重新檢討張愛玲作品與20世紀中國文學主流的關係。

 

The most successful literary images in 20th century Chinese fiction are those of intellectuals, peasants, and cadres. The complicated and contradictory relationship between intellectuals, party officials, and people not only penetrates the themes of 20th century "revolutionary literature" but also dominates the various changes and developments of modern Chinese fiction of previous century. By reading Eileen Chang's The Rice Sprout Song, a novel she composed in Hong Kong, from this perspective, this lecture reappraises the relationship between Chang's works and the mainstream 20th century Chinese literature.
