The Underside of "Talent and Beauty": The Representation of Women in the Peony Pavilion and "An Encounter with an Immortal"

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

本論文以湯顯祖,《牡丹亭》和元稹〈會真記〉為文本,探討中國傳統才子佳人故事中女人再現的議題。援引拉崗派心理分析中攸關性/別的論述,我觀察科舉社會裡女人和象徵建置的關係,試圖挖掘才子佳人故事頌揚男女情愛表象之下的性別糾葛。首先,以《牡丹亭》的女主角杜麗娘為例,我說明傳統女人融入象徵建置體系時的自我否定。其次,楬櫫拉崗「騎士愛情」(”courtly love”)和「戀慕她者」(”object a”)的理論,我分析杜麗娘及〈會真記〉中的崔鶯鶯如何透過「扮裝」以成為心儀才子之「戀慕她者」,進而析論才子與佳人之間複雜的愛戀與權力關係。最後,透過對兩部文本一喜一悲結局的閱讀,我指出女人必得透過婚姻以在象徵建置中攻佔一席之地。簡言之,才子佳人故事表面書寫女人情慾,實則以收納女人於男性中心象徵建置為敘述主軸。與其說才子佳人故事歌頌女人真「情」(”passion”),還不如說象徵建置透過故事中佳人的穿針引線滋長茁壯。
