  摘要 The present thesis will investigate how the notions of “melancholia” and “racial melancholia” in Freud’s, Anne Anlin Cheng’s, and David L. Eng and Shinhee Han's theorization have influenced the complex mother/daughter relationship in Maxine Hong Kingston's first literary work, The Woman Warrior: Memoirs of a Girlhood among Ghosts, published in 1976. The Woman Warrior narrates five stories of women in the five chapters: the narrator's adultery-committing aunt, the “no name woman;” the narrator as a woman warrior in her imagination, inspired by the legend of Mulan in the ancient Chinese poem, “Mulan poem;” the narrator's mother, Brave Orchid; the narrator's another aunt, Moon Orchid; and finally again the daughter, the narrator herself. Some of the stories told in this novel come from the talk-stories of the narrator's mother, and some are from the life experiences of the mother and the daughter in their immigrant family. My thesis will focus on the losses for both the mother and the daughter in their interaction as well as in their processes of assimilation into the white society. I hope to tease out what and how melancholia has formed between the mother and the daughter the uncrossed gap by reading the daughter’s melancholia as coming not only from the ambivalent assimilation, but also from psychically remaining at an unattainable distance from the mother and from the possibility of the loss of the mother and even the loss of ego, the loss of self.
