(这篇entry是关于我上周写的“美国总统罗纳德”。)

感谢你们的意见。

我的观点不是故事中的狗类总统是“被动角色”,而是它的行为符合我们已经知道的。如:狗的性格、它的本性、它以前的行为。

讽刺文学依靠比喻为叙述手法之一,但通过比喻只能表达真理的一部分。作为作者,我做了许多叙述方面的决定。如果我的超短篇小说不够符合现实,我希望它还能包含足够的叙述“力度”。

再次感谢。

(This entry is in regards to "Ronald, President of the U.S.A.," a short satirical piece I wrote last week.)

Thank you for your comments.

My point is not that the Dog President is a passive actor, but that his actions are consistent with what we already know. For example: the dog's personality, his nature, his previous actions.

Satire relies on metaphor as a literary device, but metaphor can only capture part of the truth. As author, I made a number of narrative decisions. If my little story is not sufficiently true, I hope that it still has narrative power.

Thanks again.
