E It is widely known that any English conversation begins with The Weather. Such a fixation with the weather finds expression in Dr.Johnson’s famous comment that “When two English meet, their first talk is of weather.” Though Johnson’s observation is as accurate now as it was over two hundred years ago, most commentators fail to come up with a convincing explanation for this English weather-speak. Bill Bryson, for ezample, concludes that,as the English weather is not at all exciting,the obsession with it can hardly be understood. He argues that”To an outsider,the most striking thing about the
(E)nglish weather is that there is not very much of it.” Simply, the reason is that the unusual and unpredictable weather is almost unknown in the British Isles. Jeremy Paxman, however, disagrees with Bryson, arguing that the English weather is by nature attractive. Bryson is wrong, he says,because the English preference for the weather has nothing to do with the natural phenomena.”The interest is less in the phenomena themselves, but in uncertainty.” According to him, the weather in England is very changeable and uncertain and it attracts the English as well as the outsider. Bryson and Paxman stand for common misconceptions about the weather-speak among the English. Both commentators, somehow, are missing the point. The English weather conversation is not really about the weather at all. English weather-speak is a system of signs ,which is developed to help the speakers overcome the natural reserve and actually talk to each other. Everyone knows conversations starting with weather-speak are not requests for weather data. Rather, they are routine greetings,conversation starters or the blank”fillers”, In other words, English weather-speak is a means of social bonding. The author mentions

羅蘭巴特  作者之死編輯

依賴作者的身份,他的政治觀點,他所處時代的歷史背景,他的宗教信仰,種族,道德觀念,精神分析或者是其他的傳記之類來理解,解讀一部作品。巴特認為這種批評雖然帶有梳理性也可信,但是絕對是有不可忽視的瑕疵的。這種做法等於「賦予文本一個作者」,並且導致「對文本強加限定」。因此,讀者有必要講將文本與作者剝離以此來逃避暴力解讀。

  • Bryson的符號學觀看方法

將繪畫作為符號系統,Bryson認為的符號是在文本中的時間、空間面向裡自由地移動,而文本或繪畫的結構由符號的散播方式決定,其意義從詮釋者得來,也就是說符號意義來自其環境文化的植入,或是本身的反射。若要寫藝術的文章便從文獻與詮釋兩方面的要求著手。文獻方面要從所有文化範疇的複雜互動去瞭解,包括:現實生活中的科學、宗教、學術、階級、政治、性別…等。而詮釋方面則機符號置於歷史的考慮中,從「當時」與「現在」來詮釋,不過「當時」的歷史也是基於現在的說法,並且要持續地詮釋。因此,所有的詮釋是在特定歷史之中、某種生活形式以及詮釋的機制之下進行。事實上,當我們在進行詮釋的時候已經這麼做了。
