An Eco-feminist Study of Steinbeck's "The Chrysanthemums"

ZHANG Ying-bo(School of Foreign Languages,Changzhou Institute of Technology,Changzhou 213002,China)  
The Chrysanthemums,one of the best short stories by John Steinbeck,is about the life experiences of a 35-year-old woman named Elisa who lives on a ranch in the American west shortly after the Great Depression.An ecofeminist study of the story reveals the fact that women as well as nature are usually ignored,oppressed and destroyed by male-chauvinistic and man-centric dualism prevalent in America during the 1930s.Steinbeck aims to criticize the patriarchal ideology,utilitarianism and man-centrism as he strongly holds that there exists a natural tie between nature and feminine spirit.Through the image of Elisa,the insightful author expresses his affectionate feelings towards nature,women and their fate.
