    Abstract: 本論文試圖透過尚.布萊希亞對於擬像與複製之概念,探求艾蜜莉.狄金生詩作中「夢」這一概念的後現代面容。藉助布萊希亞對於符號霸權的思索,本文將狄金生的夢境意象視作一種空想,並察覺其招來人們欲求理想的符號。本文不僅於詩人關於夢與作夢的寫作中,深思其中符號的無所不在,並更將觀察延伸,在詩人思慮社會的其他詩作中,探詢這所謂「符號」的影響。



    This thesis proposes to pursue a rather postmodernist landscape of Emily Dickinson’s concept of dream in several of her poems, in light of Jean Baudrillard’s idea of simulation and simulacra. With a Baudrillardian consideration that aims at the supremacy of signs, the thesis reads Dickinson’s dream imagery as an equivalent of fantasy that brings signs to actualise one’s desire for the ideal. The thesis not only considers the prevalence of signs in the poet’s writings on dream and dreaming. More extensively, it also traces the effectiveness of the so-called “signs” in a wider range of her poems where locates the poet’s concern over human society.

    The thesis wanders around three aspects: the notion of dreams defined as ideals and deception, social relationships within human society, and the utopian/dystopian dreamscape. With “We dream – it is good we are dreaming –” (J 531), “Dreams are the subtle Dower” (J 1376), and “Doom is the House without Door” (J 475) examined, the thesis firstly considers the diverse definitions of the term “dream,” and tends to define the alleged “dream” as fantasy about desiring the ideal. Yet, in the realm of dream where signs dominate, it is also noted that fantasy never brings the ideal but just deceptively summons signs of the ideal for substitution.

    With another three poems “I started Early – Took my Dog –” (J 520), “Much Madness is divinest Sense –” (J 435), and “Civilization – spurns – the Leopard!” (J 492) discussed, a deeper concern about human society is then taken in the thesis. Concerning social relationship within human society, the poet’s concerns over the dream/fantasy about the ideal are thus anchored at the problems of social order and the conflicts between the self and the Other.

    Lastly, with three poems of Emily Dickinson “‘Heaven’ has different Signs – to me –” (J 575), “There’s a certain Slant of light,” (J 258), and “Within that little Hive” (J 1607) explored, the manifestation of the utopian/dystopian dreamscape is a final focus in the thesis. The question of vagueness in meaning here is also sophisticatedly examined.
