摘要: 菲利普·拉金是战后英国诗坛后起之秀中的佼佼者,也是“运动派”诗人的重要代表人物。拉金的第一部诗集《北方的船》,一直以来被认为有矫情模仿之嫌,没得到评论界的重视。本文认为,早期的拉金受法国象征主义的影响,其作品《北方的船》表现出城市漫游者的特质,即以旁观者的态度评论周遭所闻所见,剖析诗人自我的内心世界,描写对城市生活的感悟。拉金从日常生活中摄取素材的写作技巧为其以后的发展打下了基础。
Philip Larkin is one of the most outstanding figures in the postwar British Poetry, and an important member of “the Movement”. His first collection, The North Boat, being regarded as a mimic, had called little attention since its publication. This paper analyzes that Larkin has the characteristics of a Flneur in French Symbolism, and The North Boat is a sentimental meditation of Larkin upon city life. Like a Flneur, Larkin depicted the city life to explore his inner world as an observer instead of a participator. The technique of adopting the daily life as the theme of his poetry paves the way for Larkins later mature works.
