內容簡介


  基列共和國裡,男女階級分明,父權主宰了這個社會的一切。女人被嚴苛的控制著,無法有自主的工作,不能擁有財產,依照剩餘價值被分配擔任不同職務。

  「使女」是其一,她們沒有名字,不能閱讀、與人交談,被剝奪情與慾,絕不容許隱密的慾望之花有盛開之機;只是長著兩條腿的子宮,職司和社會領導者大主教交合,以便繁衍下一代。

  本書記錄了一名在基列共和國時期擔任「使女」的心情故事。她馴服在權威體制裡,心靈卻自有主張,一步步挑戰禁忌......記錄的年代久遠不可考,但情節之荒誕駭人,卻熟悉莫名地叫人心驚。

  這本題材及技巧上都十分「後現代」的作品,作者發揮想像力之極致,掌握時間的線性流動,是過去也是未來。細膩、深刻,在迷人的敘述中反覆辯證人與女人的價值,真實與虛構拉扯,挑戰讀者的閱讀神經。極具藝術性、思想性及可讀性。

  《使女的故事》是歐美文學界推崇不已的作品,也是瑪格麗特最廣受討論之書,已被列入重要經典作品中。各大學也都有專門學者及課程研討此書。


The Handmaid's Tale is a novel of such power that the reader will be unable to forget its images and its forecast. Set in the near future, it describes life in what was once the United States and is now called the Republic of Gilead, a monotheocracy that has reacted to social unrest and a sharply declining birthrate by reverting to, and going beyond, the repressive intolerance of the original Puritans. The regime takes the Book of Genesis absolutely at its word, with bizarre consequences for the women and men in its population.

The story is told through the eyes of Offred, one of the unfortunate Handmaids under the new social order. In condensed but eloquent prose, by turns cool-eyed, tender, despairing, passionate, and wry, she reveals to us the dark corners behind the establishment's calm facade, as certain tendencies now in existence are carried to their logical conclusions. The Handmaid's Tale is funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing. It is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and a tour de force. It is Margaret Atwood at her best.
