园会 The Garden Party and Other Stories

《园会》,短篇小说。新西兰女作家曼斯菲尔德著。作于1922年。小说的主要内容是写谢太太的一位穷苦的近邻由于偶然的事故不幸身亡,遗属正伤心落泪,悲恸欲绝,而她却在园中奏乐娱乐,大宴宾客。

小说从侧面反映了阶级对立和贫富悬殊的情况。在艺术上,她深受契诃夫的影响,不设奇局,不求情节的离奇曲折,注重从看似平淡无奇的小处去发掘人物情感的变化,在客观叙述中流露出对不合理社会的抗议。作品色彩鲜明,文笔简洁而流畅,富有诗意。

《园会》这本短篇小说就像是一张张照片,抓住人们生活中的某一瞬间并将这一记忆永久封存。它们就在那儿,或微笑,或蹙眉,或忧伤,或快乐,或严肃,或惊奇……在这微笑和蹙眉的背后,是生活中的所有经历,有恐惧和喜悦,也有希望和梦想。

Mansfield is New Zealand's most famous writer. She was closely associated with D.H. Lawrence and something of a rival of Virginia Woolf. Mansfield's creative years were burdened with loneliness, illness, jealousy, alienation, all this reflected in her work with the bitter depiction of marital and family relationships of her middle-class characters. Her short stories are also notable for their use of stream of consciousness. Like the Russian writer Anton Chekhov, Mansfield depicted trivial events and subtle changes in human behavior. Her family memoirs, collected in Bliss, secured her reputation as a writer.
