章节摘录

  Oates makes it clear that the sexual violence against Sharon happens in ordinary and familiar places, and committed by different men. The suggestion is obvious: the crime is not a personal act; it is a "social experience". What is reiterated in Sharon's violent life, as in the traumatized Gotteson and Kathleen, is that society partakes in the vice it is supposed to exterminate.  As a female serial killer who symbolically “ sucks the blood of other people" , Sharon might stand as a modern version of the female vampire, one of the most recurrent images in the 19th-century formulaic fiction of the Gothic in which the female rarely becomes a serial killer until she is transformed into a vampire by a male vampire, like Lucy in Dracula (1897) and Camilla in J. Sheridan Le Fanu's namesake novella. Owing to the subtle cultural equation of blood and semen (Hughes 241) , the vampire denotes seduction and eroticism.  Yet for the female vampire, the gender connotation is reversed. She is inhuman because she is aggressive in sex hinted by her drawing blood from her victims. She is thus a monster and has to be eliminated. For the vampire, however, killing is the only way for her to survive. To solve this deadly dilemma, and to disperse the (male) writer's anxiety about the female's aggressive sexuality, she must die. It is not surprising that female vampires like Lucy and Camilla are destroyed while Dracula, the most famous male vampire in Western literature, lives forever.  ……

作者简介

《乔伊斯·卡罗尔·欧茨的哥特现实主义小说研究》由刘玉红编著。
《乔伊斯·卡罗尔·欧茨的哥特现实主义小说研究》简介:乔伊斯·卡罗尔·欧茨(Joyce Carol Oates)是当代美国多产而多才的作家。她的作品中充满了暴力,因而常常被认为是一位哥特小说家。欧茨在小说创作中大量运用各种哥特的技巧,但是,她借鉴哥特传统是服务于其现实主义的创作目的,因此,她的当代哥特小说可界定为“哥特现实主义”。具体而言,这一哥特现实主义关注生活中暴力的一面,它借用传统哥特小说的技巧,赋予其现实的风格与内涵,以此揭露和批评美国社会与文化的种种弊病。它既体现了哥特小说对人性黑暗的关注,又忠于现实主义客观表现生活的创作原则。
