《群盲》為法國劇作家梅特林克(Maurice Maeterlinck 1862-1949)象徵主義代表劇作之一，首演於1891年。描述12個無依無靠的盲人，被老教士帶到北方陌生森林裡。那個離群的收容所，遠離了生氣盎然的世俗人生，一切變的異常孤獨與壓抑。他們焦急的等待教士到來，卻不知教士早已死在他們身邊。梅特林克在劇中刻意營造一個不同於現實世界的場景，希望藉由盲人在極端無助情境下的痛苦吶喊，揭示一個關乎人類心靈與宿命的現代議題。
Les Aveugles, one of Belgian playwright Maurice Maeterlinck’s (1862-1949) representative works of the Symbolist movement, was performed for the first time in 1891. It depicts 12 lonely blind people being brought by a senior priest to a strange forest of the north. In this isolated asylum which keeps away from lively and secular real life, everything becomes extremely lonely and depressed. These blind people anxiously wait for the priest’s coming, but don’t know he has already passed away and remains by their side. Maeterlinck in this play purposely creates a scenario different from the real world and conveys a modern issue related to human soul and destiny by revealing the blind people’s painful and screaming state in their helpless situation.
