Abstract

林婉瑜,1977年生,台灣台中人。她的詩大多是抒情詩,尤其偏重於對愛情的描寫,以日常生活為場景,藉由自由活潑的想像與優美流暢的文字,呈現信手拈來的機趣,使愛情顯現生活化與流動的特質。本次演講將以女性主義觀點為依據,探討林婉瑜如何以女性主體的位置,書寫有關愛情的多種感覺,並且和日常生活融合在一起,表現她個人的獨特風格。 從女性主義觀點來看,女詩人書寫愛情,大多是被動式的等待,對愛情十分執著,依附在男性身上,因此常常表現為創傷、憂鬱的情感。女性主義思想也鼓勵作家書寫身體和情慾,用來打破女性在愛情中的被動狀態,從而建立女性的主體位置。林婉瑜對愛情不是被動式的等待,而是以「我」為主體,表達「我」對愛情的嚮往、愛慕、愉悅、猜疑、焦慮、幻滅、頓悟等,主題相當多元。而詩中的場景,少見戰爭、死亡等生離死別的大議題,反而常見的是日常的生活空間,例如城市、街道、咖啡館、校園、夜市等,也有抽象或後設的情境,例如星空、夢境、網路媒體、大雨來臨時、雷電襲擊時以及在「時間」之流中的想像與叩問。但林婉瑜不直接描寫身體與情慾,她仍是著重在心靈與想像的層面,抒情意味濃厚,因此被稱為是台灣當代優秀的抒情詩人。林婉瑜的情詩,突破以往女詩人書寫愛情的模式,在抒情的筆調中,仍經常顯現女性主體的思考,她具有自己獨特的風格,也建立女性詩歌文化的另一種模式。

Yuyu Lin was born in 1977 and lives in Taichung. Her lively and prolific poems are mostly lyrical, focusing on descriptions of love and taking everyday life as their settings.  This talk will take a feminist view to explore how Yuyu Lin takes the position of female subject to examine the emotional world of love, then blends it with everyday life settings to form a unique style that represents an independent model of female poetic production.
