    福樓拜短篇小說選(亮軒書場)

    by 亮軒 ...
    Narrated by 亮軒 ...

    Unabridged

    1 hour 47 min

    福樓拜極為講究文字運用,讀他的許多中、短篇,這樣的感覺尤其強烈。有的時候,情節似乎不見了,一點都不重要了,重要的是他的文字本身。挑了又挑,終於選出一篇名作,是他最有名的中篇「淳樸的人」。老實說,讀到了福樓拜的作品,就很想當個法國人。能直接用法文讀他的作品多麼幸福啊!在讀「淳樸的人」的時候,真是想要俯身親吻這一位偉大作家的腳背。就像評論家說過的一樣,他怎麼能用那麼簡單樸素的文字,把一個最平凡的女人的一生,寫得那麼動人?他是神嗎?福樓拜是文字的魔術師。講者簡介:亮軒美國紐約布魯克林學院廣播電視研究所碩士。曾任電臺、電視節目主持人、製作人及聯合報專欄組副主任等,亦曾在世新大學教授語言邏輯、修辭學、美學等。近三十年,連續於各大報刊撰寫時評專欄。善烹調,喜翰墨,嗜讀如狂。曾獲“中山文藝散文獎”、“吳魯芹散文推薦獎”,出版有散文集、小說集、評論集等二十餘部,其文字世界,精彩絕倫。章節 ...
