摘要: 对奥斯汀的写作风格,历来有大量的讨论。有评论者认为她的作品平淡乏味,表现在她的取材狭小、叙述风格陈旧、缺乏明确的道德指向。然而,这些指责是表面和偏颇的。本文以《爱玛》为例,分析奥斯汀如何通过戏剧冲突的内心移植、含而不露的作者型叙述、个人经历与社会道德的交织等小说技巧,使她的小说既具有节制性风格和平衡的美感,又充满了内在张力和活力。
In the past two centuries, some historical studies of Jane Austen tend to characterize her novels as conservative and bland, which are evidenced by the small settings in her novels, the traditional narrative approaches and her static view about social morality. However, such criticism fails to fully realize the subtlety and the depth of her art. This article takes Emma as an example to investigate how Austen brings perfection to the novel form by employing the techniques of internalization of dramatic conflicts, the implicit authors voice, and the interwoven description of the heroines personal growth and the social morality, which enable her novel to have full tension and vitality, as well as beauty of reticence and balance.
