張愛玲──《鬱金香》

昨天翻箱倒篋,把長年積聚卻又沒甚用處的文件一個勁地清理了,期間給我找到了一件寶貝,可沒想到自己還留著她的一份剪報(明報 2005.10.2),短短兩年的時間已發黃了不少。

說來慚愧,這位才女的文采,我著實從沒見識過,或許接觸過一些節錄,但卻沒有好好地讀過一篇。今天,終於碰面。

是一篇很短的愛情故事,聽說佚失了五十八年之久,在她逝世十週年後才正式公開。故事巧妙地交代了主要人物的過去、現在與將來,一點沒有因篇幅所限而草草收筆,很完滿。開始時我心裡還在狐疑:「這麼短的小說,幹麼還著墨在那些沒要緊的人物背景上?」也許我給好萊塢的電影荼毒得過甚了,總想情節推進得快一點,須知這是上世紀中葉的文學作品,那時人們的生活還沒被媒體支配,有多一點的空間觀察周遭的人情世故,自然描述得較為深刻。每個人物的個性都很立體,彷彿腦袋裡已有某某的影子浮現出來了,怪不得文人都崇拜她,字裡行間盡是魅力。

不是啦~~善用學校資源呀~~
其實scan了四次,再用Photoshop合併...很多工序㗎...一張報紙比A3還大,哪會有錢買那麼大的scanner...-_-"
btw,那篇小說真的很不錯,試着讀讀吧...其實是很短的了...
