|Abstract: ||《吾兒故事》是葛蒂瑪第一本以非自人的敘事觀點寫成。她一 方面以有色人種的革命家庭為縮影，揭示南非種族隔離社會中，少數族裔的困境。另一方面，她質疑男性觀點下女性形象再現的偏頗，突顯非自人女性再殖民統治及父權宰制下的顛覆力量，並描繪跨種族之認同心理。藉此，葛蒂瑪呈現了多元文化中跨越界線的可能。葛蒂瑪超越了種族及性別觀點的限制，將她慣用的自女性觀點轉為非自人的男性觀點，以突顯非自人革命社群中的內部問題。正如她之前的小說，《吾兒故事》不僅呈現了南非的轉變和她自己寫作策略的改變，更標明了葛蒂瑪處理非自人議題時，跳脫自人觀點的新里程碑。|
My Son s Story is Nadine Gordimer's tenth novel but is her first novel narrated in the nonwhite perspective. Gordimer uses a colored revolutionary family as a microcosm in the apartheid society to unveil the dilemma and predicament of the in-between men and women in South African apartheid. In the colored male's narrative, Gordimer attempts to interrogate the partial and problematic representation of South African women, to highlight the oppression and subversion of the nonwhite women dominated by colonial and patriarchal authority and to scrutinizes the psychic desire of the interracial relationship between a colored man and a white feminist. In this novel, Gordimer presents a possibility of the boundary crossing in the multiracial and multicultural South Africa through the story of the colored family. My thesis aims to tackle the problems of the representation of South African women in masculine narrative, the subversion of the oppressed, and the identities of the in-between people.
