中文摘要 薩爾曼‧盧西迪《午夜之子》可視為印度歷史殘段,併存且結合野史人物
沙令、史奈的回憶錄與自傳。為求逼真呈現,本書大量運用內心獨白,藉以闡
述書中主角沙令、史奈的觀點。該小說一開始就以童話故事陳述方式,並以超
寫實幻想讓我們想起《一千零一夜》。其多重概念顛覆作法,突顯該本小說主要目的是楬櫫作者自身的意識形態。顛覆印度次大陸歷史的繁複表現,結合盧西迪對歷史與普世價值的懷疑態度,造就該小說恰符合並被冠以琳達‧哈金恩的所謂後設小說,是後現代主義小說的最佳表現方式。基本上,其內容顛覆印度次大陸的傳統認知與史觀。這篇論文就是要展延盧西迪如何揉合歷史、小說與小說理論於一體,並藉著模糊小說與提及的史實之間的界限,讓小說有著以假亂真的呈現。這就表示該小說涵蘊雙重詰問:它既在小說中塑造擬真的情境,卻又高度質疑歷史文件的可信度。故而,小說鋪述沙令自傳便融入眾多史實;矛盾的是,其內容讓人覺得比真實歷史記錄更可靠。而除了其獨特的記史體,混雜東西文化、身分不斷變化、以及男女兩性主宰機制的對調等等,都坐實了該小說的主題係圍繞在雜揉乙事。
英文摘要 Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children can be seen as the juxtaposition and combination of Indian fragmentary histories and an ex-centric character’s (Saleen
Sinai) fragmentary memoir and autobiography. Simulating the reality, the novel utilizes plenty of monologues to express the ideas of Saleem Sinai, the protagonist.
This novel opens with the depiction as the fairy tale and reminds us of the narrative of One Thousand Nights and A Night with surrealistic imagination. But, the subversion
of multiple concepts reveals that its main target is to project the author’s own ideology. In this novel, Rushdie’s skepticism toward history and universality and complicated presentation of history of the Indian subcontinent happens to correspond to Linda Hutcheon’s historiographic metafiction, the most ideal form of postmodernist fiction. Basically, this work overwhelms the traditional recognition and spotlight of the Indian
subcontinent. Based on the above, this thesis explores how Rushdie converges history, fiction, and criticism of fiction within one fictional text and furthermore, blurs their boundaries by constructing the verisimilitude between the fictional worlds and the realities referred. It means that Midnight’s Children guides the double interrogations, because Rushdie molds the sense of authentication in fictional texts whereas manifests the falsification in historical documents. Thus, he interlaces diverse facts from history while developing Saleem’s autobiography. Paradoxically, his content displays a more realistic world than historical records. Besides his peculiar writing style of history, the mixture of Western and Eastern cultures, the changeable identities, and the mutual exchange of dominance between males and females, highlights a postmodern impulse toward hybridization.
