Abstract: 姚紫是新马一代早期优秀的小说家之一。他对于新加坡华文文学的推动与发展作出非常重要的贡献。对于姚紫小说的研究并不多,所研究的范围大多着重在姚紫对于人物形象描写的成就方面。因此,本文希望从另一个视角去研究姚紫作品,希望能够开创一个研究姚紫小说的视野并激发起更多讨论其作品的言论。 本文将以小说中“性/别”作为研究的主要对象,分析作品中的性别权利关系如何被创造,并更深一步地去探讨这个性别的定位在国家与阶级的主题里如何发挥其功能。本文可分为三个部分。其一、从男性凝视看女性在作品中被复制化的形象以及女性对建构男性气概的作用。其二、探讨性别如何再现为国家的形象,以及对建构国家身份认同的作用。其三、探讨性别与阶级的的挑战。

He has contributed enormously to the development of Chinese Literature in Singapore back in his era. There were not many researches done on Yaozi’s novels, and the existing researches were mainly focused on his accomplishments as a sophisticated of female portrayals in his novels. Therefore, this paper would like to approach his novels from another angle, in hopes that it will create more discussions of his works. This paper will focus mainly on the gender aspects of the novels, from how the gender relationship is being established in the novels, to how it sets in and relate in the Nationhood and Class themes. This paper would be divided in to three parts. Chapter 2 discusses how the female image is being replicated in his novels with the application of themale gaze theory and how it becomes an essential factor in the construction of Masculinity in the male characters. Chapter 3 explores the relation between Nationhood and Gender, how the Nation is being reimagined under the context of Gender and how it contributes to the construction of National Identity. Last but not least, Chapter 4 looks into how the existing gender roles are being challenged by Class and how moral values are infused to maintain the status quo.
