Ghost, Silence and Doubleness: Reading into the “Uncanny” in The Woman Warrior

ZHAN Si-min;Hangzhou Normal University;  
Being categorized into New Gothic sets, Maxine Hong Kinston's The Woman Warrior has lots to do with the strange setting. While the concept of"The uncanny"is characterized by both strangeness and doubleness, to comprehend the uncanniness of The Woman Warrior more deeply, it is necessary to perceive the pervasively entailed doubleness in the story. Through analyzing the recurring images of ghost and silence, which stand for the source of the strangeness, we try to perceive the doubleness in the text from the perspective of the author's Chinese-American identity. We conclude that Kinston fabricates the multilayered uncanniness in the story through the entangled multi-doublness and constructed identity struggle.
