18年後公開演講受訪 村上春樹:把我想成瀕絕動物

2013-05-08 02:42
  • 中國時報
  • 【黃菁菁/東京八日電】

     作家村上春樹睽違十八年後終於在日本公開露面,他七日在京都大學與五百名讀者交流時談及,自己喜歡的作家是夏目漱石、吉行淳之介,不喜歡的是川端康成。
     看靈魂、寫靈魂 與讀者們交流
     村上幾乎不公開露面,這次是應邀參加河合隼雄小說獎暨學藝獎的創設紀念活動,因為已故臨床心理學者河合是他的摯友。村上的演講共吸引約一千五百名讀者報名,最後抽選出幸運的五百名。
     村上以牛仔褲、棒球帽、球鞋等輕鬆造型現身,在京都大學百周年紀念大廳,以「看靈魂、寫靈魂」為題發表演講,並接受隨筆作家、前編輯湯川豐的訪問,公開與讀者對談。演講會全程不接受媒體採訪,同時規定讀者不得錄影、錄音。
     不願公開露面 盼讀者遠遠觀察
     不過,村上很有耐心且幽默地回答提問。被問到不公開露面的理由時,村上開玩笑說:「我的工作是寫文章,因此盡量不想參與寫文章以外的事。請把我想成瀕臨絕種的西表山貓(日本沖繩特有的品種)的話,我會很感謝的。即使看到了,都希望能只從遠遠的觀察。」
     談到剛發表的新作《沒有色彩的多崎造和他的巡禮之年》,村上說,自己也被四位主角引導著寫到欲罷不能,才會變成長篇小說。「在我的作品中,那麼仔細地描寫豐富多彩的人物還是第一次,邊寫我邊對人與人的關聯感到強烈的關心與同感。」
     要成長得更大 傷痛就得大一點
     對主角被好友宣告絕交一事,村上說:「我也有類似經驗,這是成長故事,要成長得更大,傷痛就得大一點。」
     《沒有色彩的多崎造和他的巡禮之年》是自從《挪威的森林》之後,村上再度以現實主義手法書寫的小說。「表面上是現實的,底層有非現實。也許會被認為是文學的後退,但對我自己而言,是新的嚐試。」
     故事在靈魂深處 能與讀者相連
     「小說家的任務就是要將人們的故事,用相對性的模式表現。我的故事與讀者的心產生共鳴,才會形成靈魂的網路。」村上還說:「所謂的『物語』(故事)是在人的靈魂深處的東西,正因為在心中最深處,才能從根本上連結人與人。」
     六十四歲的村上被問到今後跑馬拉松的計畫時表示,「我跑馬拉松已經超過卅年,花的時間變長也是沒辦法的事,但我想訓練自己到即使年紀大了也能跑的程度,到八十、八十五歲左右還能跑馬拉松就好了。」
     作品無趣還會買 最愛這種讀者
     針對「平時讀什麼書呢?」的提問,他說「在我的記憶當中,小學三年級以前幾乎都不讀書,小學四年級以後,會騎車到當時住的兵庫縣西宮市圖書館,把兒童的讀物幾乎都讀完,拿到什麼書就讀什麼,讀書也是很重要的。」
     他最後感謝讀者說:「我真的很高興,有讀者等著我出書並且買書。我會拚命寫的,今後也請多關照。」
     「比起說讀我的作品會感動到哭,我更喜歡聽到的是讀我的作品會想笑。」他說:「會說『這次的作品很無趣,太失望了,但下次也要買』這樣的人我最喜歡了。」

In rare appearance, Murakami says relationships of characters in his latest book intrigued him


Bernat Armangue, File/Associated Press - FILE - In this Feb. 15, 2009 file photo, novelist Haruki Murakami of Japan reacts before receiving the Jerusalem award during the International Book Fair in Jerusalem. Murakami said Monday, May 6, 2013 his latest novel was a new experiment and grew longer than expected as he developed a desire to expand on side characters while writing. The latest novel by one of Japan’s most respected and popular novelists, “Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and the Year of His Pilgrimage,” has sold more than 1 million copies a week since it went on sale last month.






KYOTO, Japan — In a rare public appearance, respected Japanese writer Haruki Murakami said his latest novel was an experiment and grew longer than expected as he developed a desire to expand on side characters while writing.
“Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and the Year of His Pilgrimage” has sold more than 1 million copies a week since it went on sale last month.







The novel, whose story was a well-kept mystery up until the book’s release, is about a man healing from a sudden rejection by his friends. Murakami said it reflects his deep interest in real people and relationships rather than allusions.
“At the beginning, I was planning to write something allusive, as in my past works. But this time I developed a great interest in expanding on real people. Then the characters started to act on their own. I was intrigued by the relationships between people,” Murakami said.
The protagonist, Tsukuru Tazaki, a 36-year-old railway station architect, returns to his hometown of Nagoya in central Japan and travels as far as Finland trying to learn why he was rejected 16 years earlier by his best friends — two boys and two girls — in hopes of making a fresh start in life.
In the book, Tazaki’s girlfriend plays a key role in urging him to try to come to terms with his past trauma. Murakami said the girlfriend character, Sara Kimoto, also led him to write more about the four friends.
Murakami said the significance of storytelling is to portray something invisible and deep inside in each person and help create a place where people can sympathize and identify with others.
“If a reader sympathizes with my story, then there is a network of empathy,” he said.
The novel is the first in three years for Murakami and is only available in Japanese for now. Japanese media said his appearance Monday at Kyoto University was Murakami’s first public appearance in Japan in 18 years.
The writer said he could sympathize with Tsukuru’s pain because he had a similar experience, although not as bad.
“I can understand how painful it is to be rejected,” Murakami said. “When you get hurt, you may build an emotional wall around your heart. But after a while you can stand up and move on. . That’s the kind of story I wanted to write.”
Murakami, often mentioned as a Nobel Prize contender, has written such internationally known works as “Norwegian Wood” and “The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.”
Also an accomplished translator of contemporary American literature, Murakami counts among his influences F. Scott Fitzgerald and Raymond Chandler. Murakami taught as a visiting scholar at Princeton University in the early 1990s.
He is also a prolific nonfiction writer and has published a collection of interviews of survivors and bereaved families of a gas attack on Tokyo’s subways in 1995 by an apocalyptic cult, Aum Shinrikyo.
A vocal opponent of atomic weapons, Murakami has been a critic of Japan’s pro-nuclear energy policies since the 2011 Fukushima disaster.
Murakami’s reclusiveness has added to his appeal.
The last time he appeared in public in Japan was at a book reading after a disastrous 1995 earthquake in Kobe, near where he grew up.
Monday’s event in his birthplace, Kyoto, was tightly controlled. He was interviewed by a veteran literary critic, and no recording or filming was allowed by the media or the audience of 500 who won seats by a lottery.
Murakami, dressed casually in a plaid shirt, brick-colored jeans and navy sneakers, appeared relaxed, but admitted he is media shy.
“When I woke up this morning I almost thought of taking a bullet train home,” he joked. “It’s not because I have a mental condition or purple spots all over my body. I’m just an ordinary person who lives an ordinary life.”
He said his job is to write and he prefers to concentrate on that.
Chiyomi Hirosawa, a 43-year-old architect in the audience, said she was delighted to see Murakami in person.
“It was great to be able to see the real Murakami that we can never know from his novels. He has a great sense of humor and seemed more upbeat than the kind of person I was imagining,” she said.

Murakami mania sweeps Japan as new novel is released

An initial print run of 500,000 copies is announced as Colourless Tsukuru and His Years of Pilgrimage finally goes on sale.

The latest novel by Haruki Murakami went on sale today in Japan amidst extraordinary scenes. The Japanese author is a publishing sensation in his own country, where each new novel unleashes a wave of Murakami mania.
Hundreds of fans lined up outside Tokyo's bookshops, which opened their doors at midnight to deal with the demand for Colourless Tsukuru and His Years of Pilgrimage. Media crews also stationed themselves on the streets as broadcasters aired a live countdown to the launch.
One bookshop even temporarily renamed itself after the author, to mark the new novel's release.
The book's publisher, Bungei Shunju, announced an initial print run of 500,000 copies, roughly one for every 250 people in Japan, according to Channel NewsAsia.
The print run of Murakami's last novel, 1Q84, sold out on its first day of release, reaching sales of one million within a month.
Amazon Japan reported it had already taken 20,000 pre-orders as of last Saturday.
Breakfast television programmes were showing pictures this morning of journalists who had stayed up all night to read the book. One early review described the new work as "a story about a man who tries to get back into his life again. You see the strength of a person who tries to overcome the feelings of loss and lonelines that he has amassed deep inside of himself."
Fans on Twitter expressed their excitement over the new book and intrigue over what the unusually long title meant. "The title says 'colourless'. What does this illustration mean? I cannot wait to read it," tweeted Ryosuke Kawai, 26, one of the first to get his hands on a copy.
Some fans have speculated that the title is a reference to a collection of piano pieces called "Years of Pilgrimage" by Hungarian composer Franz Liszt.
The demand for the new book is all the more remarkable considering that, in typical Murakami fashion, fans had been told virtually nothing in advance about it.
The author, whose fiction focuses on the fantastical and surreal, has a reputation for setting puzzles for his readers. 1Q84, shortlisted this week for the Impac Dublin Literary Award, baffled readers with its plotline set in parallel universes.

Twitter fans also praised Murakami's ability to generate literary excitement in a nation heavily addicted to technology, in particular videogames and smartphones.
He is rarely seen in public and has not made an appearance in Japan in almost two decades, although that is set to change in May, when he will appear at a seminar in Kyoto.
Murakami's novels have sold millions of copies, been translated into over forty languages, and won him the Franz Kafka Prize, the Jersualem Prize, and Spain's Catalunya Prize amongst others. He has also been tipped to win the Nobel literature prize.
《中英對照讀新聞》Author Murakami wades into Japan-China island row 作家村上春樹涉入日中島嶼爭議

◎俞智敏
Haruki Murakami, one of the world’s foremost novelists, waded into the territorial row between China and Japan recently, warning of the peril of politicians offering the "cheap liquor" of nationalism.
全球最知名的小說家之一村上春樹最近也涉入中國與日本之間的領土爭議,警告政客們提供民族主義「廉價劣酒」可能引發的風險。
The Japanese author of "Norwegian Wood" said cool heads should prevail.
這位曾寫過小說「挪威森林」的日本作家表示,在爭議中理智應該佔上風。
Writing in the liberal-leaning Asahi Shimbun, Murakami, who has been tipped as a future Nobel laureate, said disputes over land existed because of the unfortunate system of dividing humanity into countries with national borders.
多次被視為諾貝爾文學獎可能得主的村上投書給自由派的朝日新聞寫道,有關釣魚台的爭議之所以存在,是因為把人類用國界分為不同國家的不幸系統所導致。
"When a territorial issue ceases to be a practical matter and enters the realm of ’national emotions’, it creates a dangerous situation with no exit.
「當領土議題不再是實際問題,而成為『民族情感』的問題時,就會製造出無路可走的危險情勢。」
"It is like cheap liquor. Cheap liquor gets you drunk after only a few shots and makes you hysterical. It makes you speak loudly and act rudely... But after your drunken rampage you are left with nothing but an awful headache the next morning.
「這就像是喝劣酒。廉價的劣酒只要幾杯就能讓你喝醉,變得歇斯底里。喝劣酒讓你說話大聲,舉止粗魯……但當你發完酒瘋後,第二天早上除了頭痛欲裂外一無所有。
"We must be careful about politicians and polemicists who lavish us with this cheap liquor and fan this kind of rampage," he wrote.
「我們必須提防這些拚命給我們倒劣酒、煽起暴動的政客和好辯人士,」他寫道。
"You soon sober up after the buzz of cheap liquor passes," he said. "But the path for souls to come and go must not be blocked."
「劣酒帶來的宿醉過後,你很快就會清醒過來,」他說。「但靈魂的交流道路不該被堵住。」
Murakami has never shied away from controversy. When he received the 2009 Jerusalem Prize, Israel’s highest literary honour for foreign writers, he obliquely criticised the Middle East conflict.
村上過去從不畏懼涉入爭議話題。當他於2009年獲得以色列頒給外國作家的最高文學獎項耶路撒冷獎時,就曾間接批評過中東衝突。
"If there is a hard, high wall and an egg that breaks against it, no matter how right the wall or how wrong the egg, I will stand on the side of the egg," he said at the ceremony in Jerusalem.(AFP)
「假如有一堵堅固的高牆,和一顆擊打在牆上的雞蛋,不論那堵高牆有多正確,或雞蛋有多錯誤,我都會站在雞蛋那邊,」他在耶路撒冷的頒獎儀式上表示。(法新社)

 遷怒於村上春樹的小說中日間就釣魚島(日本稱尖閣諸島)主權爭議引發的紛爭仍在繼續,甚至已經蔓延到了文化界。(德國之聲中文網)中日間就釣魚島(日本稱尖閣諸島)主權爭議引發的紛爭仍在繼續,甚至已經蔓延到了文化界。日本著名作家村上春樹一系列小說的中文版譯者林少華,日前呼籲中國出版社不再出版村上的作品,書店也不再銷售他的書。 《南德意志報》的文藝副刊發表署名文章,講述了中日島嶼之爭背景下的這場文人論戰。文章說,林少華本人也是個村上迷,他翻譯村上的作品已經有20多年了,並與原作者保持著密切的個人關係。日本文學翻譯者林少華“林少華最近的言論或許讓人們感到詫異,但不能把他的表述和那些盲目從眾、暴力洩憤的示威者的民族主義畫上等號,他們中的大多數可能從未讀過一本日本作家寫的書。但林的話也不能被淡化為一時走嘴,或酒後失言。這似乎的確是這位日本文學學者的本意。難道他是被中國的文化官僚施加了壓力?對此我們不可能很快得到答案。同樣我們無法知道,那些把日本作家的作品取下貨架的書店,是得到了當局的指令還是過分積極自覺才這樣做。然而,一位著名的、年事已高的翻譯家,得受到多大的壓力,才會唾棄自己傾注了大半生心血的文學作品呢?”文章指出,其實村上春樹9月底就在《朝日新聞》上發表文章,提醒人們不要被民族主義所蠱惑。他把民族主義比作讓人失去理智的“廉價的烈酒”。中國作家閻連科上週末在《國際先驅論壇報》上發表文章,提到一千多名日本知名人士發表的一封呼籲當局正視日本殖民歷史,保持理性尺度的公開信。文章引述了閻連科的話:“日本作家可以率先對關乎中日兩國命運同時又命若琴弦的東亞局勢發表明洞而理性的見解,這是他們令人敬重的作為知識分子的人格和寫作者的不凡,相比之下,我作為一個中國作家,就顯得遲鈍和麻木,自愧弗如了。”

Novelist Murakami: Imagination leads to 'special room that lies within us'

April 17, 2012
By YU YAMADA/ Staff Writer
HONOLULU--Internationally acclaimed writer Haruki Murakami gave a lecture and reading to a standing-room only crowd at the University of Hawaii's Manoa campus.
Murakami is a visiting writer-in-residence at the East Asian Languages and Literatures Department for the current school year.
The April 10 event was titled, "What I Talk About When I Talk About Writing."
In addition, Murakami has taken part as a guest in other courses on Japanese literature and has been accessible to students.
About 200 people were waiting for the doors to open to Murakami's event. The 600 or so seats in the ballroom were filled about 30 minutes before Murakami addressed the crowd. An additional 200 or so people stood.
This is the second time Murakami has spoken at the University of Hawaii.
"I gave a lecture at this same place six years ago," Murakami told the crowd. "I am very happy to be invited back again."
In his talk in English, Murakami discussed how using one's imagination made it possible to see a "bridge under the water."
People can see it when they open the door to a special room that lies within them, Murakami said. He added that seeing it can change the way people think about life and it is the power of novels that can lead to such experiences.
Murakami also revealed how he wrote every day for about three years to complete his most recent work, "1Q84."
Murakami read two short stories from his collection "Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman." The stories selected were "The Rise and Fall of Sharpie Cakes" and "The Mirror."
Before reading his works in Japanese, Murakami explained that he did not feel comfortable reading his own works in English.
The English translations were read by Ken Ito, a professor of Japanese literature.
The audience gave Murakami a standing ovation after his readings, and students formed a line to get autographs. Murakami responded to the huge demand, staying for more than an hour to sign autographs and talk to participants.
Shihlun Chen, 35, a graduate student at the University of Hawaii, said he had read almost all of Murakami's works and sat in one of the front rows because it was unusual for Murakami to make such a public appearance. Chen said he was glad to be able to listen to Murakami's voice because it allowed him to gain a sense of his tempo.
The student added that the appeal of Murakami's work was in expressing the loneliness felt by the younger generation even as they lived in urban areas and were part of a larger group.
Although Murakami did not have a regular course he was in charge of, he would attend lectures if invited. He also set up office hours during which students could come to him with their questions.
In one class held in December by Gladys Nakahara, an instructor of Japanese language, Murakami read in Japanese from a collection of essays that can be translated into English as "Afternoon in the Islets of Langerhans." During the class discussion that followed, Murakami answered questions raised by students, including his thoughts at the time of the writing as well as his experience running the Honolulu Marathon.
"Although I heard that Murakami did not like to have his photo taken, he allowed photos to be taken," Nakahara said. "The students were all very happy."
Joel Cohn, an associate professor of Japanese literature, said: "Murakami's works are very accessible. Our imaginations are stimulated because we are unsure what the elements in his novels symbolize. While his term ends in July for the current academic year, I hope he can continue this in the next academic year."



2014.4.2 補我2004年的一小篇

叫Haruki Murakami,不是「村上春樹」!
坦白說,村上春樹的作品很多,不過只看完《日出國的工場》。
最近出版商猛吹捧其關係產業(猶如昆曲的困獸之鬥),讀起來也很有意思。
他的書名翻譯都將錯就錯:「挪威森林」等等,最近「聽見100%的村上春樹」("Haruki Murakami and Music of Words")其實是對作者文字神韻的「音癡低調處理」;他的譯者魯賓(他在哈佛專門講授和研究日本文學)的書《妨害風化:明治時代的文人》(Injurious to Public Morals: Writers and the Meiji State")
將文人與國家對立(Writers and the Meiji State)化解:「明治時代的文人」。
