摘  要

  作家考琳•麦卡洛所著的小说《荆棘鸟》是一部富有魅力的小说。其中的人物形象与现实中的人物原形极为一致,反映了当时社会现实。小说揭示了这样一个道理:真正的爱和一切美好的东西是需要以难以想象的代价去换取的。本文分析小说中的三位女性人物,故事中三位女性人物来自处于不同时代的三代人中,她们对自己想要追寻的幸福有不同的需求和理解,同时她们都为追寻自己的幸福付出了不同的代价,得到了不同程度的幸福。但于这不同之中,她们又体现了女性勇于追求,无畏牺牲的共同精神。在论文中,应用了一些佛学的观点来分析三位女性的代价与幸福,通过讨论小说中三位女性人物为追寻“荆棘”所付出的代价以及表现出的女性的坚强勇敢,执著追求的女性精神,来分析该三位女性人物的形象,反映女性思想的发展进步,引起现代女性对爱情,女性主义和女性自我实现的关注。
