少儿文学名著:莱辛寓言 (Famous Children's Literature:Lessing's Fables)

By Doris Lessing

 《莱辛寓言》讲述了莱辛是个剧作家。他先后写了《萨拉·萨姆逊小姐》、《爱米丽雅·嘉洛蒂》、《米娜·封·巴恩海姆》以及《智者那旦》等剧作。他在这些剧作中猛烈地鞭挞暴虐的封建专制统治,热情地鼓吹了资产阶级人道主义的思想。这几个剧本有着深刻的思想内容和宝贵的艺术价值,成为世界戏剧中的珍品,直到今天仍不断被搬上舞台和银幕。

  莱辛还写了《汉堡剧评》和《拉奥孔》等著名的美学著作,分别对戏剧的现实主义理论、对造型艺术与诗歌艺术的区别和界限做了精彩的阐述。今天,这两部书都已成为西欧古典文艺理论和美学的经典著作了。

  莱辛并不像古希腊的伊索、法国的拉封丹等人,他不是一个专门从事寓言写作的作家。寓言在他的创作活动中不占有什么特殊的地位。但是,他不仅写了三卷散文寓言和一些诗体寓言,而且作为一个杰出的文艺理论家,还对寓言这一文学体裁作了详细而深入的研究。
