Thoughts and Concern about Their Times:A Case Study of Frank Chin's Kwan Kung
- 外文学院－已发表论文 
一提到美国华裔作家,人们的第一反应就是他们只会在作品中再现一些具有东方主义色彩的异国情调,以此吸引读者的眼球。殊不知,华裔作家也是有着时代的关怀,有着作家自己的"天命"。本文拟从接受美学视角出发,探讨赵健秀如何塑造关公形象,如何通过这一形象体现作家的个人焦虑、社会关注和时代关怀。Our first impression about Chinese American writers is that they can only represent some Orientalist exotics to draw readers' attention. Chinese American writers,however,show utmost concern about their times with their "mandate of heaven." This paper will elaborate on the way Frank Chin creates in his works the image of Kwan Kung that in return reveals the author's personal anxieties and concern about their times.
