摘要: 本文把诺曼·梅勒的最后一部小说《森林的城堡》作为一个新历史主义文本进行解读,试图在一个跨文本和跨领域及多维度的张力中来审读和思考这个文本。文章首先交代了梅勒写希特勒的意义,并指出是作家的犹太人身份、二战的经历以及强烈的社会与历史责任感,驱使他用小说的形式去探索这个希特勒邪恶灵魂中的邪恶种子。其次笔者就文本中的艺术虚构与历史真实之间的关系进行了分析,试图发现新历史主义文本是否可以通过跨越/模糊文本界限而更好地揭示出世界之真谛。最后笔者把研究的目光放在了文本采用的视角上,试图揭示它与神学、心理学以及血统论的关系。
In this study, The Castle in the Forest, Norman Mailers last novel, is looked upon as a newhistoricist text because of its intertextuality and multidimensionality. First, this article makes some investigation into the motivations that have driven Norman Mailer to engage himself in this literary study of the seeds of the evil soul of the notorious villain Adolf Hitler. Secondly, the article analyzes the relationship between historical facts and fictional elements in the text, trying to find out whether the interplay of both will serve better to discover the true nature of the world. And lastly, attention has been paid to the viewpoint of the narration to see whether it is from the view of theology, psychology or blood drama.
