无期徒刑 For the Term of His Natural Life
《无期徒刑》是一部关于英国澳大利亚流放犯的经典长篇小说,作者是澳大利亚殖民时期重要作家马库斯·克拉克,该作品自问世以来在国际上引起了广泛的关注。本文从存在主义理论角度解读本篇小说,探索了作品中英国流放犯在澳大利亚的真实生活境遇。二战以前,澳大利亚人认为有着罪犯祖先是他们的污点,在《无期徒刑》中克拉克无情地抨击了英国流犯制度的罪恶,为殖民时期英国流放犯的清白做了坚定的辩护。作者通过主人翁鲁弗斯的遭遇揭示了流放制度对人们心灵的摧残,再现了澳洲早期英国流放犯生活的真实境遇,具有深刻的社会现实意义。
Marcus Clarke (1846-1881), the author of For the Term of his Natural Life, was born in England and emigrated to Australia in 1863, working on a sheep station before becoming a journalist and, later, an editor. He wrote plays, short stories and essays as well as novels, but it is For the Term of his Natural Life that is regarded as his masterpiece, and as one of the most important Australian novels of the nineteenth century.
