作者: 王士齐 ：华东师范大学外语学院，上海;
Abstract: Lydia Davis won the Man Booker International Prize 2013 and then her short stories were intro-duced to the Chinese readers. Her inventive, carefully-crafted and hard-to-categorize works are totally different from what we define traditional novels from which she created the “original”, “unusualness” novels of her own style. This paper, with reference to terms as ethical situation, ethical identity, ethical choices, ethical literary criticism, attempts to explain and comment on the different life with its moral features from ethical perspective in 2 short stories by Lydia Davis in her book The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis under the current social situations: information exploding environment, the prevailed “fragmentation” reading context, “short, adaptable and fast” writing stylistics, the popular “shallow reading” way due to the easy access to Internet.
