Interpretation of the Heroine’s Emotional Reconstruction in The Ghost Train

  •  Xian Wu    


Paul Yee’s imaginary myth The Ghost Train mainly relates the experience of the heroin Choon-yi who is born with the drawing talent that helps those deceased Chinese labors return to China with the guidance of her father in her dream. On the road, she has confronted with many Chinese-Canadian cultural conflicts. Thus, the article will analyze the process of her emotional reconstruction from the aspects of her inner rebellion against the Canadian hegmonism, adaption and integration of the dual cultures, revealing how she accomplished a journey of salvation for nationalities and a pilgrim of seeking herself-growth.
