Bottomless Loneliness and Despair: New Women in Winsburg Ohio

Qiu-shi WANG


Though an analysis of how and why four new women in Winsburg, Ohio appear grotesque, this paper points out that grotesques actually cherish rich and beautiful spiritual world and that shackled by sex discrimination, their loneliness and despair are deeper than these of men grotesques’.
Key words: Winsburg Ohio, new woman, loneliness
Résumé Par l’analyse des conduites excentriques des quatre nouvelles femmes dans Winesburg, Ohio ainsi que leurs raisons, l’article indique que les excentriques possèdent en fait un monde spirituel beau et riche, et que, en tant que femmes, elles sont liées de plus par le sexisme et leurs solitude et désespoir sont beaucoup plus profonds que ceux des hommes excentriques.
Mot clés : Winesburg, Ohio, les nouvelles femmes, la solitude
摘 要 本文通過分析《小城畸人》中四位新女性的畸人行徑及其成因,說明畸人不畸,實則是精神豐富美麗的人,而身為女性,她們比男性更多一重性別歧視的桎梏,其孤獨與絕望也更深刻。
