Abstract

有甚麼樣的價值觀,就有甚麼樣的文學。呈現在成人所寫的兒童文學中的,無論是兒童的生活圖景,還是兒童的內心世界,反映出來的,都是成人預設理所當然的立場,是成人作家的童年回憶與憧憬,以及他們對當代兒童的想像與期望。這些作品能否跟當代的兒童對話,描繪他們的面貌,想他們所想,說他們所說,令他們共鳴?這是關心兒童的成人社會所不該忽視的問題。詩歌是兒童直覺的感受與童心的呈現,當代都市兒童透過詩歌所呈現的自我圖像與世界觀,又是否跟成人觀念中的兒童心理大同小異?論文透過分析21世紀香港部分兒童創作的詩歌,觀察在不斷蛻變中的兒童自我形象,認識他們的真實面貌,了解他們的心智和感情,從而反思「兒童本位」文學作品的意義,希望能為日後的兒童文學的創作提供參考。
Values determine the manifestation of literature. What emerges from children literature created by adults, whether they are portraits of children's lives or reflections of children's minds, reviews only the pre-set stances of the writers, their memories and anticipation of their old days, as well as their imagination and expectation towards the young generation. Can these texts communicate with the children today, portray their images, express their thoughts, speak for them, and echo with them? These are the issues that any child-caring adult society shall not neglect. Poetry is the intuitive manifestation of the feeling and mind of children. Are the self-portraits and worldview reflected in their poetry similar to those in adults' minds? The thesis analyzes poetry composed by the Hong Kong children of the 21st century, studies their ever transforming self-images, learns about the portraits, intellects, emotions and perceptions towards the adult world reflected in the poetry, and examines the essence of “children-based” literature. It is hoped that the findings can give some reference to the creation of children literature in the future. Copyright © 2009 國立臺東大學兒童文學研究所.
