    Abstract: 透過生態女性的閱讀方式,本論文主旨在於針對瑪格麗特‧艾特伍德《浮生錄》中的主題來做探討,當中包含了性別歧視、自然宰制,以及西方階級化二元對立(hierarchical dualism)的思想體系。身為一位加拿大籍女性作家,艾特伍德除了呈現有關對於女性和自然的壓迫以外,也呈現連結這兩種壓迫的二元對立思想(oppressive dualistic thinking)。艾特伍德筆下所描繪出敘述者的精神之旅,是為了要打破這種二元對立的思想體系,並且在男女之間、人跟自然之間,提供了一種新的認同方式。為討論此目的,我在論文中分為五章詳加申論:
    Through an ecofeminist reading, this thesis attempts to examine the themes of sexism, naturism, and hierarchical dualism underlying the Western conceptual framework in Margaret Atwood’s Surfacing (1972). Being a Canadian woman writer, Atwood presents not only the oppressions of women and nature but also their link to an oppressive dualistic thinking. To dismantle such conceptual system of dichotomies, Atwood portrays the narrator’s spiritual journey to offer a new identification among women-men and human-nature relations. To aim at this purpose, I will divide my thesis into five chapters.
    The first chapter begins with an overview of the author, text, and context of this novel. To define this novel as an ecofeminist literary work, I first delineate the main ecofeminist theories, and then explore the textual interaction to ecofeminism.
    Chapter Two will focus on the patriarchal language and the objectification of women and animals. From an ecofeminist perspective, I will interpret how patriarchal consciousness in the novel conceptually disparages the ontological meanings of women and animals.
    The third chapter mainly discusses how the narrator overturns the mind-body dichotomy and perceives American-Canadian and American-machine comparisons from a boundary-blurring concept.
    Chapter Four and Five concentrate on how the narrator’s spiritual transformation corresponds to ecological consciousness and ecofeminist spirituality. Crossing the binary oppositions and getting along with nature, the narrator is no longer a victim; instead, she accepts the unfortunate past through the healing process of encountering nature, realizes nature-human interrelatedness and the cycle of life force, and finally returns to the city with a new identity.
