摘要: 海明威在死后出版的小说《伊甸园》中,通过描写男主人公大卫·伯恩与妻子凯瑟琳和妻友玛丽达之间错综复杂的关系,反映出同性恋、非传统性行为和雌雄同体的主题,其目的在于打破传统的社会性别约束,向传统男子汉行为提出质疑,但与此同时他又力图拯救男性身份,努力完善传统性别角色。因此该小说较全面地体现了作者复杂的性属观。
Hemingway's posthumous novel The Garden of Eden, through the description of the complicated relationship among the hero David Bourne, his wife Catherine and his wife's friend Marita, presents the themes of homosexuality, unconventional sexual behavior and androgyny, which breaks the confinement of traditional gender and questions the traditional masculine behavior. But at the same time, the author attempts to retrieve the male identity and tries to perfect the traditional gender roles. So this novel rather comprehensively reflects the author's view of gender.
