ABSTRACT

In the subjective experience of the image of migrant-oriented women under the pen of Yan Geling toward their personal life-volition, close attention of this author to the individual awareness of women is implied. Compared with other overseas Chinese writers, Yan Geling has always been attaching importance to the intrinsic disposition of female life. Therefore, while molding the image of migrant-oriented women, she endeavors to explore the self emotions and self-contradictions deep in the soul of women, by turning aside such stereotyped propositions as “the foreordination and fate-resignation of women”. In special overseas life, the homeless and forlorn emotion and life experienced by migrant-oriented women have reinforced the aesthetic force of this novel. Migrant-oriented women under the pen of Yan Geling hold fast to self-consciousness, face human nature directly in reality, or even would not hesitate to turn themselves against stereotypes in order to safeguard their perceptual egos. These contents and profound connotations have endowed the novel with a profound sense of contemporaneity.
