Abstract (Chinese)
本文主要探讨中国作家老舍的小说作品《二马》,主要描述两位中国人在二十世纪初 客居英国的生活与遭遇, 包括了许多中国人和英国人相互之间所存在的文化差异与偏 见。本文将针对《二马》中所描绘的文化差异与偏见, 与二十世纪初到过中国和欧洲 旅行者所著作的非小说类作品进行比较,以判断这些文化差异与偏见是来自于老舍个 人写作的想像,还是在当时可能是真实存在的。
Abstract
This essay is focusing on the Chinese author Lao She’s work ErMa, a novel that is about two Chinese who move to England in the beginning of the twentieth century. In the novel there are plenty of cultural differences and prejudices between the English and the Chinese. This essay will focus on these and compare them with real, non-fictitious travel writings written by travellers to China and Europe during the beginning of the twentieth century. This is done in order to determine if the majority of the prejudices in ErMa are only made up by Lao She’s imagination or if they are based on reality.
