Research output: Contribution to journalArticlespeer-review

Abstract

「後九七香港青年作家」的創作風格多元,題材豐富,其創作已經積累一定成果,但學術界對他們的關注仍然相當有限。本文關注「後九七香港青年作家」小說裡鮮為論者提及的面向-小說裡呈現的「自然連結」。「後九七香港青年作家」大都見證了香港不斷通過移山填海來擴張城市空間,以及市區更新日益頻繁的年月。城市空間持續擴張,自然空間遭受越來越大的壓力。本文聚焦於可洛和韓麗珠,以及陳志華、謝曉虹、李維怡、張婉雯等作家的小說,探析他們如何理解城市空間與自然空間之間的關係。本文首先指出「後九七香港青年作家」如何通過小說呈現城市空間與自然空間的此長彼消,以及城市居民因為長居高度人工化的城市空間而失去自然連結。最後,本文將會探討「後九七香港青年作家」除了對高山海洋等自然環境懷有「地方之愛」,還關心人類以外的物種在城市空間的生存狀況,呈現了高度的「自然連結」。
The creative styles and themes of fiction by "Post-1997 Hong Kong Young Writers" are rich and diversified. A lot of work has been written since 1997, but research on these within academia is limited. This article focuses on the notion of "nature relatedness" in the fiction of "Post-1997 Hong Kong Young Writers". It is an aspect that is rarely discussed in academic research. Most "Post-1997 Hong Kong Young Writers" have witnessed Hong Kong's continuous expansion of urban spaces through the removal of mountains, reclamation, and urban renewal. When the urban space continues to expand, the natural space is under higher pressure. This article discusses the fiction of Ho Lok, Hon Lai-chu, Chan Chi Wa, Tse Hiu-hung, Lee Wai-yi, and Cheung Yuen-man, to explore how they understand the relationship between urban and natural spaces. This article first points out how "Post-1997 Hong Kong Young Writers" represent the conflict between urban and natural space in their fiction; and that urban residents lose their connection with nature due to their way of living. Finally, it discusses how "Post-1997 Hong Kong Young Writers" present their "topophilia" for the natural environment, and caring about the survival of species other than humans in urban spaces.
