  VII. Translate the following passage into Chinese.
  In their determination to read Dickinson's life in terms of a traditional romantic plot biographers have missed the unique pattern of her life---her struggle to create a female life not yet imagined by the culture in which she lived. Dickinson was not the innocent lovelorn and emotionally fragile girl sentimentalized by the Dickinson myth and popularized by William Luce's 1976 play The Belle of Amherst. Her decision to shut the door on Amherst society in the 1850's transformed her house into a kind of magical realm in which she was free to engage her poetic genius. Her son was not the result of a failed love affair but rather a part of a more general pattern of renunciation through which she in her quest for self-sovereignty carried on an argument with the Puritan fathers attacking with wit and irony their cheerless Calvinist doctrine their stern patriarchal God and their rigid notions of "true womanhood.
