本文以《龙阳逸史》的男色书写为主，首先通过文本中对男风社会的书写，分析作者如何建构这几乎可以“认定”所有人都好男色，并将男色作为一种难以抗拒、更胜女色的世界。接着分析文中的情欲描写，揭示其阶级之间不可跨越的权力关系。最后探讨在此男风社会下的男色形象所呈现的女性化倾向，而大老官作为男色的主要接收者，其所追寻的男色形象又是否和小官的形象一致，并解析《龙阳逸史》中的男色鉴赏倾向，由此全面的分析《龙阳逸史》中的男色书写方式与特点。作为晚明男色书写的重要文本，《龙阳逸史》所体现的是晚明社会小官阶层的世态炎凉，无情一面。通过对文本的细读与分析，本文将从男色书写的角度探讨《龙阳逸史》是如何体现晚明社会中的男风、男色现象。In this paper, I analyse the male homoerotic writing style in Longyang yishi through three main perspectives: first is to look at how Longyang yishi construct male beauty as irresistible to all man and even to surpass woman's beauty in the stories; secondly through the erotic description of the stories to uncover the relationship of social class and status between the penetrant and penetrated men; last but not least, to probe the male beauty portrayed in the stories to provide a better understanding in the male homoerotic fashion during the late Ming dynasty and how the novel represent it in its stories.
