        《兔子四部曲》是美国当代著名作家约翰·厄普代克的代表作。兔子系列小说描述了绰号为“兔子”的主人公哈利的生活历程。本文从三方面分析了兔子的形象:对死亡充满恐惧,对家人不负责,对性和垃圾食品过度放纵。几次逃离家庭给家人造成了极大的伤害;又过度放纵性欲使自己被家人孤立;放纵食欲又损伤了身体,最终孤独地死去。兔子是一个恐惧死亡,一生都是以自我为中心,不负责任,是一个不值得同情的人。
    Rabbit Tetralogy is the masterpiece of John Updike, who is an outstanding contemporary American writer. The Rabbit series depict the life experience of Harry, the protagonist whose nickname is Rabbit. This Thesis analyzes the image of Rabbit in three aspects: His fear of death; his irresponsibility for his family and his over indulgence in sex and junk food. His escapes from home bring the family members tremendous hurt; his over-indulgence in sex makes him isolated by his family members, the over-indulgence in junk food damaged his health, in the end he died alone. Rabbit is a person who is obsessed with the sense of the impending death, self-centered, irresponsible and antipathetic.
