  • 何穎怡:近看瑣碎、遠看壯闊的「老太婆文學美感」

    文/何穎怡2019年03月13日

    《荒廢清晨》被譽為羅馬尼亞戰後最偉大的文學作品。左為美版封面。右為羅馬尼亞版封面。 新專欄介紹我曾經讀過卻一直很遺憾台灣沒有出版的書。這些書未必是文學經典,或者重量級思想巨論。有的是另闢蹊徑,對大眾文化有特別的解讀。有的特殊行業,讀者沒有機會領略他們的世界,以及他們在那個世界 more
 

內容簡介

THE AUTHOR OF SMALL ISLAND TELLS THE STORY OF THE LAST TURBULENT YEARS OF SLAVERY AND THE EARLY YEARS OF FREEDOM IN NINETEENTH-CENTURY JAMAICA

Small Island introduced Andrea Levy to America and was acclaimed as “a triumph” (San Francisco Chronicle). It won both the Orange Prize and the Whitbread Book of the Year Award, and has sold over a million copies worldwide. With The Long Song, Levy once again reinvents the historical novel.

Told in the irresistibly willful and intimate voice of Miss July, with some editorial assistance from her son, Thomas, The Long Song is at once defiant, funny, and shocking. The child of a field slave on the Amity sugar plantation, July lives with her mother until Mrs. Caroline Mortimer, a recently transplanted English widow, decides to move her into the great house and rename her “Marguerite.”

Resourceful and mischievous, July soon becomes indispensable to her mistress. Together they live through the bloody Baptist war, followed by the violent and chaotic end of slavery. Taught to read and write so that she can help her mistress run the business, July remains bound to the plantation despite her “freedom.” It is the arrival of a young English overseer, Robert Goodwin, that will dramatically change life in the great house for both July and her mistress. Prompted and provoked by her son’s persistent questioning, July’s resilience and heartbreak are gradually revealed in this extraordinarily powerful story of slavery, revolution, freedom, and love.
