完美的悲剧

他在哪我就在哪

为什么这么喜欢王尔德呢,这个价值取向跟我完全不同的享乐主义者的文字实在是太迷人了。最近在读他的一本小说《道林格雷的画像》,除了惊叹他的语言之美,就是越读越觉得小说中的那个Lord Henry简直就是他本人的化身。博学多才,美丽至上,青春至上,性情乖张,有强烈的洞察力和雄辩的口才,能够让谬论散发出真理一般的光彩。 同性恋被公认的分为两种,一种是所谓“天生的”,其说法可靠性还没有完全得到证实,一种是后天的,多半是在女性那里心理受到了挫折或者有什么童年阴影之类的外在原因。王尔德我觉得他的同性恋是源于他对美的过度追求。其实他是喜欢女人的,也曾热切追求过好几个美女。他自己的妻子就是一个美女。但是当他看到自己的妻子怀孕的臃肿的身体,无法抑制的产生了厌恶感,无法忍受先前那么美丽的身体,忽然变得如此难看。可能他本质上是一个双性恋。他自己说,他也知道同性恋是危险的,但是他喜欢这种刺激。正是这种刺激使他欲罢不能。一开始是实验性的,后来就一下子沉迷了,维多利亚时代的拘谨的家庭生活让他难受,他是一个反常规的人,所以当然受不了这个,这是他性格迷人的地方,也是他的可悲之处。 王尔德的迷人之处肯定不是因为...

为什么这么喜欢王尔德呢,这个价值取向跟我完全不同的享乐主义者的文字实在是太迷人了。最近在读他的一本小说《道林格雷的画像》,除了惊叹他的语言之美,就是越读越觉得小说中的那个Lord Henry简直就是他本人的化身。博学多才,美丽至上,青春至上,性情乖张,有强烈的洞察力和雄辩的口才,能够让谬论散发出真理一般的光彩。 同性恋被公认的分为两种,一种是所谓“天生的”,其说法可靠性还没有完全得到证实,一种是后天的,多半是在女性那里心理受到了挫折或者有什么童年阴影之类的外在原因。王尔德我觉得他的同性恋是源于他对美的过度追求。其实他是喜欢女人的,也曾热切追求过好几个美女。他自己的妻子就是一个美女。但是当他看到自己的妻子怀孕的臃肿的身体,无法抑制的产生了厌恶感,无法忍受先前那么美丽的身体,忽然变得如此难看。可能他本质上是一个双性恋。他自己说,他也知道同性恋是危险的,但是他喜欢这种刺激。正是这种刺激使他欲罢不能。一开始是实验性的,后来就一下子沉迷了,维多利亚时代的拘谨的家庭生活让他难受,他是一个反常规的人,所以当然受不了这个,这是他性格迷人的地方,也是他的可悲之处。 王尔德的迷人之处肯定不是因为那令他身败名裂的性取向,可是他的这一经历确实让人扼腕叹息,同性恋天才往往不是极度自卑就是极度自恋,柴科夫斯基应该是自卑的那种,王尔德估计是自恋的那种吧。不过倒不一定是自恋引起了他的同性恋,而是过度的完美主义,和贪恋青春,贪恋放纵。 才看了几个章节的Picture of Dorian Gray就发现了许多的经典的句子。 But beauty, real beauty, ends where an intellectual expression begins. (Chapter 1, P3) ...and the charm of marriage is that it makes a life of deception absolutely necessary for both parties.(Cha.1. P5) She a peacock in everything but beauty. (Cha .1. P8) Laughter is not at all a bad beginning for a friendship, and it is far the best ending for one. (Cha.1 P10) But I can't help detesting my relations. I suppose it comes from the fact that none of us can stand other people having the same faults as ourselves. (Cha. 1 P11) Days in summer are apt to linger. It is a sad thing to think of, but there is no doubt that Genius lasts longer than Beauty.That accounts for the fact that we all take such pains to over-educate ourselves. In the wild struggle for existence, we want to have something that endures, and so we fill our minds with rubbish and facts, in the silly hope of keeping our place. ...the worst of having a romance of any kind is that it leaves one so unromantic. (Cha. 1 P15) "...Those who are faithful know only the trivial side of love: it is the faithless who know love's tragedies."And Lord Henry struck a light on a dainty silver case, and begain to smoke a cigarette with a self-conscious and satisfied air, as if he had summed up the world in a phrase. (Cha. 1 P16) Because to influence a person is to give him one's own soul. He does not think his natural thoughts, or burn with his natural passion.... (Cha. 2 P20) And Beauty is a form of Genius--is higher, indeed, than Genius, as it needs no explanation. It is one of the great facts of the owrld, like sunlight, or spring-time, or the reflection in dark waters of that silver shell we call the moon. (Cha. 2 P26) Always! That is a dreadful word. It makes me shudder when I hear it. Women are so fond of it. They spoil every romance by trying to make it last for ever. (Cha. 2 P29) Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic. (Cha.3 P42) I can sympathise with everything, except suffering. (Cha.3 P47) But, as the nineteenth century has gone bankrupt through an over-expenditure of sympathy, I would suggest that we should appeal to Science to put us straight. The advantage of emotions is that they lead us astray, and the advantage of Science is that it is not emotional.(Cha.3 P49) Reality entered the room in the shape of a servant to tell the Duchess that her carriage was waiting. But there is no literary public in England for anything except newspapers, primers, and encyclopaedias. (Cha.3 P50) He was always late on priciple, his priciple being that puntuality is the thief of time. (Cha.3 P52) Men marry because they are tired; women, because they are curious; both are disappointed. Women represent the triumph of matter over mind, just as men represent the triumph of mind over morals. (Cha.4 P55) The mere danger gave me a sense of delight. (Cha.4 P56) A grande passion is the priviledge of people who have nothing to do. (Cha.4 P57) There are many things that we would throw away if we were not afraid that others might pick them up. (Cha.4 P57) It's only the sacred things that are worth touching. When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving one's self, and one always ends by deceiving others.That is what athe world calls a romance. (Cha.4 P61) People are very fond of giving away what they need most themselves. It is what I call the depth of generocity. (Cha.4 P65) A Great poet , a really great poet, is the most unpoetical of all creatures. The mere fact of having published a book of second-rate sonnets makes a man quite irrisistable. He lives the petry that he cannont write. The others write the poetry that they dare not realize. (Cha.4 P66) 美与道德总会发生矛盾的,有时候,美本身就是一种毒药,王尔德其实心里太清楚这个了,但是他没有办法战胜自己的性格缺陷,于是他从不可一世的社交名流,变成了一个声名狼藉的人,他自己也说过,If I can't be famous, at least I can be nortorious.看这本书,你可以想象一个活生生的王尔德,怎样悠然自得地行走于伦敦上层社会的社交场合,用一串一串的妙语蛊惑人心,展现自己的魅力,享受公众的瞩目。
