190 簡介 D.H. Lawrence的繪畫和藝術 



"The Ship of Death" by D.H. Lawrence

"Now it is autumn and the falling fruit
And the long journey towards oblivion…
Have you built your ship of death, O have you?
O build your ship of death, for you will need it. "
–D. H. Lawrence

"And they stared and they stared, the half-witted lot
at the spot where the fig-leaf just was not!
But why, I ask you? Oh tell me why?
Aren't they made quite the same, then, as you and I?"
--from "13,000 People" by D.H. Lawrence

The lines above are from a poem written in response to the furor caused by an exhibition of Lawrence's erotic paintings which opened in London on this day in 1929.


 WQXR的Reflections from the Keyboard host David Dubal 朗誦 Piano BY D. H. LAWRENCE


Softly, in the dusk, a woman is singing to me; 
Taking me back down the vista of years, till I see 
A child sitting under the piano, in the boom of the tingling strings 
And pressing the small, poised feet of a mother who smiles as she sings. 

In spite of myself, the insidious mastery of song 
Betrays me back, till the heart of me weeps to belong 
To the old Sunday evenings at home, with winter outside 
And hymns in the cosy parlour, the tinkling piano our guide. 

So now it is vain for the singer to burst into clamour 
With the great black piano appassionato. The glamour 
Of childish days is upon me, my manhood is cast 
Down in the flood of remembrance, I weep like a child for the past

Frieda Lawrence. Not I, But the Wind. New York: Viking Press, 1934....

不是我,而是風 (Not I, But the Wind)

Frieda Lawrence【1879-1956】《不是我,是風—勞倫斯妻子回憶勞倫斯》( "Not IbuttheWind...", Rydal/Viking, 1934.),新華出版社,2006

作者是奇人,有傳記:Janet Byrne: A Genius for Living - A Biography of Frieda Lawrence, Bloomsbury, 1995.


pined in thought,
And with a green and yellow melancholy
She sat like patience on a monument,
Smiling at grief. . . .

Twelfth Night: Act II, scenes iii–iv
學生參考書說法:“Patience on a monument” refers to statues of the allegorical figure of Patience, which often adorned Renaissance tombstones. By comparing her imaginary sister to this stone figure,  Viola subtly contrasts her own passion with the self-indulgent and grandiose lovesickness from which Orsino claims to suffer.


【千風之歌】的歌詞原本是一首印地安的詩歌,是一位印地安男子在妻子過世後,覺得了無生趣,準備帶兒子一起循著妻子的腳步而去, 但是就在他整理愛妻遺物的時候,發現她寫了一首詩,詩的內容告訴他,她將化作親人身邊的風、雪、陽光和星辰,並且告慰親人別再佇立於墳前哭泣,自己並沒有離去,而是以另一種姿態繼續守護著所愛。男子哀傷的心 因此獲得了撫慰,也打消自殺的念頭。
  因為這首詩的意境優美深刻,在歐美和日本都分別被譜上不同的旋律傳唱。在美國,[A Thousand Winds]曾被用在911的追悼會上朗誦,也被譜成合唱曲;而在日本,則被新井滿翻成日文歌詞,譜上曲,並由聲樂家秋川雅史演唱,轟動一時,唱片大賣五百萬張。


「此首詩詞作者及寫作時間已不詳,但最有根據的是於 1932年,在美國馬利蘭州巴爾的摩市,一位名為Mary Elizabeth Frye (1905-2004) 的主婦,為了同居友人Margaret chwarzkopf的母親過世而寫的作品 。
另一種說法是有位喪妻的印地安人,因想念亡妻極度傷心,計畫與兒子一起自殺追隨亡妻,­正在安排後事,整理亡妻遺物時,發現亡妻生前所寫的一首詩。 」
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there;I do not sleep.
我不在那兒 也沒有長眠
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in the circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there ;I did not die.
我不在那兒 也沒有離您而去

由於此首詩詞本身並無名字,因此,一般人就以其第一句「Do not stand at my grave and weep」來命名。

關於這首歌 千の風になって - 秋川雅史 此首詩詞作者及寫作時間已不詳,但最有根據的是於 1932年,在美國馬利蘭州巴爾的摩市,一位名為Mary Elizabeth Frye (1905-2004)…

"The human soul needs actual beauty more than bread"
David Herbert Lawrence, English writer and poet, was born #onthisday1885.
Lawrence's best known novels include The Rainbow (1915), Women in Love (1920), and Lady Chatterley’s Lover (1928, but banned until 1960). His depiction of sexuality shocked many readers, and obituaries presented adverse responses to his achievement. However, the novelist E.M. Forster was an exception, describing him as ‘the greatest imaginative nove⋯⋯
