摘 要

国内外关于艾米莉·狄金森的研究不计其数,但从生态批评角度出发的研究还为数不多。生态批评旨在探讨文学与自然环境之间的关系,发现文学作品中的生态意蕴,以唤醒当代人的生态意识。美国女诗人狄金森一生创作了1775首诗歌,其中约500首与自然有关。从生态角度对其自然诗展开细读,不难发现其中蕴含着诗人对自然的热爱和关心,尊重和敬畏,以及诗人诗意地栖居的理念。在日益恶化的环境面前,狄金森自然诗中蕴含的生态思想为保护环境以及建立和谐的人与自然关系提供了线索。

Abstract

Among the numerous studies of Emily Dickinson in China and abroad, there has been few from the perspective of ecocriticism. Ecocriticism aims at exploring the link between literature and natural environment to find out the ecological wisdom in literary works so as to awaken the ecological consciousness of contemporaries. American poetess Emily Dickinson composed 1775 poem during her lifetime, of which nature poems accounting for about 500. By reading her nature poems from ecological approach, it is not difficult to discern her concern and love for nature, her respect and reverence for nature, and her idea of poetical dwelling on earth. In view of the current deteriorating environmental conditions, the ecological thoughts implied in Dickinson’s nature poems are a hint for protecting environment and maintaining a harmonious relationship between human beings and nature.
