  • 【陳榮彬│關於譯者與作者的那些事】臺灣文學英譯之母──追念殷張蘭熙女士

    文/陳榮彬2018年11月14日

    誰是Nancy Ing? 林海音的故事集《綠藻與鹹蛋》英譯本,由殷張蘭熙翻譯。 自輔大取得比較文學博士學位後,我從2011年獲聘前往臺灣大學開設臺灣文學課程。由於臺文所希望我能以全英語授課,備課時所用文本自然都必須是英文譯本。就在我仔細研究臺大圖書館裡那個專門收藏華語文學作品英譯本的書架時 more
 

內容簡介

  一部反映中國近代苦難的家族記憶史
  一部過渡新舊時代衝突的女性奮鬥史
  一部台灣文學走入西方世界的大事紀
  一部用生命書寫壯闊幽微的天籟詩篇
 
  巨流河,
  位於中國東北地區,是中國七大江河之一,被稱為遼寧百姓的「母親河」。
  南濱渤海與黃海,西南與內蒙內陸河、河北海灤河流域相鄰,北與松花江流域相連。
  這條河古代稱句驪河,現在稱遼河,清代稱巨流河。
  影響中國命運的「巨流河之役」,發生在民國十四年,當地淳樸百姓們仍沿用著清代巨流河之名。
 
  本書的記述,從長城外的「巨流河」開始,到台灣南端恆春的「啞口海」結束...
  作者齊邦媛的父親齊世英──民國初年的留德熱血青年,九一八事變前的東北維新派,
  畢生憾恨圍繞著巨流河功敗垂成的一戰,
  渡不過的巨流像現實中的嚴寒,外交和革新思想皆困凍於此,從此開始了東北終至波及整個中國的近代苦難。
  作者的一生,正是整個二十世紀顛沛流離的縮影。
 
  本書嘔心瀝血四年完成,
  作者以邃密通透、深情至性、字字珠璣的筆力,記述縱貫百年、橫跨兩岸的大時代故事。
  獻給──所有為國家獻身的人。

  Heralded as a literary masterpiece and a best-seller in the Chinese-speaking world, The Great Flowing River is a personal account of the history of modern China and Taiwan unlike any other. In this eloquent autobiography, the noted scholar, writer, and teacher Chi Pang-yuan recounts her youth in mainland China and adulthood in Taiwan. Chi’s remarkable life, told in rich and striking detail, humanizes the eventful and turbulent times in which she lived.
 
  The Great Flowing River begins as a coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of China’s war with Japan. Chi depicts her childhood in pre-occupation Manchuria and gives an eyewitness account of life in China during the war with Japan. She tells the tale of her youthful romance with a dashing pilot that ends tragically when he is shot down in the last days of the war. The book describes the deepening political divide in China and her choice to take a job in Taiwan, where she would remain after the Communist victory. Chi details her growth as an educator, scholar, and promoter of Chinese literature in translation and her realization that despite her roots in China, she has found a home in Taiwan, giving an immersive account of the postwar history of Taiwan from a mainlander’s perspective. A novelistic, epoch-defining narrative, The Great Flowing River unites the personal and intimate with the grand sweep of history.
 
Review
 
  I don’t know of any other memoir in English that is quite like this. It is of enormous significance because it adds so much for those with an interest in the Republic of China in both China and Taiwan. -J. Megan Greene, author of The Origins of the Developmental State in Taiwan: Science Policy and the Quest for Modernization
An inspiring life story of unvanquished resilience. -Kirkus Reviews
 
  A personal memoir set against the history of modern China and Taiwan. . . . From coming of age during China’s war with Japan to her eventual move to Taiwan, Chi’s story remains both intimate and historically connected. -World Literature Today
 
  The Great Flowing River is a grand memoir. It tells a story of loss, suffering, fortitude, and the nobility of sacrifice. It is a personal narrative that reflects the fate of the Chinese nation, especially the fate of those who were driven away from their homeland and managed to survive elsewhere with integrity and dignity. There is a calmness and tremendous power in the wise narrative voice, whose resonance lingers long after the last page is turned. -Ha Jin, author of Waiting and other novels
An engaging read for those interested in memoir, 20th-century Chinese and Taiwanese history, and Chinese culture. -Library Journal
 
  The Great Flowing River is one of the great memoirs of modern China. Telling the story of one woman’s odyssey through the twentieth century, this is not just a deeply moving account of Chi Pang-yuan and her family, but a window into how the Chinese people came through the trauma of war and turmoil, and created a new set of civilized values in their aftermath. -Rana Mitter, author of Forgotten Ally: China’s World War II, 1937-1945
 
  This is a memoir of epic proportions. Chi’s work is a testimony of this tremendous historical period that is the long twentieth century for the Chinese and the Taiwanese peoples. The English translation of this epochal memoir is most certainly significant. -Letty Chen, author of Writing Chinese: Reshaping Chinese Cultural Identity
