摘要: 
Prominent Taiwanese dramatist Hugh. K.S. Lee(李國修) begins the play The Half-Mile Great Wall(《半里長城》), the first part of Ping Feng Acting Troupe's(屏風表演班) Feng Ping series(風屏劇團系列), with a third-rate acting troupe named Feng Ping performing another play entitled Great Wall of China(《萬里長城》). Lee deploys the frame play to mock and ridicule historical figures or to dismiss the significance of historical events in order to evoke in the audience the feeling of absurdity. He further draws the past into a critique of the present, creating an inter- referentiality between historical figures, including Lü Buwei(呂不韋) and Lao Ai(嫪毐), and members of Feng Ping Troupe, one which highlights human values transcending the boundaries of time and space. Although his use of irony and mockery in the play conveys allegorical significance, it does not leave the audience with a heavy heart. Alluding to and mocking human nature from a broader perspective, the play invites the amused audience to reflect rather than pity. An analysis of The Half-Mile Great Wall sheds light on the creative intention and historical interpretations of Lee during his early career and the ironic effects of the play.

李國修是臺灣極為重要的戲劇家,《半里長城》一劇是屏風表演班的「風屏劇團」系列作首部曲。《半里長城》以三流的「風屏劇團」搬演《萬里長城》這樣劇中劇的形式展開,李國修透過劇中劇的方式呈現他對於歷史人物的調侃、嘲諷,或是瓦解歷史事件的重要性進而讓觀眾感到荒謬。並利用借古喻今的方式,以呂不韋、嫪毐等歷史人物,與「風屏劇團」成員相互指涉,更進一步會發現其所指涉的更是一種超越時間與空間的人性價值,其劇的諷刺、調侃充滿了寓言性,但卻不會讓觀眾有太過於沉重的心情,其把所隱射、諷刺的人性以較為廣義的方式呈現給觀眾,讓其戲劇在觀眾的歡笑中得以省思卻不以此為悲,藉由分析《半里長城》一劇,可以更清楚李國修早期的創作意圖、歷史詮釋,以及戲劇所呈現的諷刺效果。
