A Room with a View by E.M.Forster ( 1879〜1970 ) (p.3 ~ )

まるで荘園小説作家Jane Austen の小説のような滑稽さとsnobbish (お高くとまった、俗物の)丸出しで始まるこの小説にびっくり仰天。久守先生のこれからのご講義が楽しみです。
久守先生の資料から。
18世紀後半――――Grand Tour  上層階級の子息が "先進国“ Italy等に数年遊学
19世紀―――――中産階級に金銭的余裕が生まれ、大陸旅行熱
この小説は上記からすると、中産階級の大陸旅行熱の時代背景を持っている。

アルノ川が見えるはずの宿の南側の部屋が、全く見えない北側の部屋に宿泊することになった2人の英国女性(Charlotte BartlettとLucy Honeychurch)の憤懣やるかたない、宿の食堂での会話からこの物語は始まる。それを聞いた2人の英国男性(Mr. EmersonとGeorge父子)が部屋の交換を申し出るのだが、

Miss Bartlett did not stop to consider,, for her glance passed on to his clothes. These did not attract her.

突然のぶっきらぼうな申し出にびっくりしたCharlotteは、その後

"This pension is a failure. Tomorrow we will make a change.” Hardly had she announced this fell decision when she reversed it.

そこに突如、英国人の牧師 Mr. Beebe が現れ、状況は一変したからである。

Lucy at once rose to her feet,exclaiming: "Oh, oh! Why, it's Mr.Beebe! Oh, how perfectly lovely! Oh, Charlotte, we must stop now, however bad the rooms are. Oh!“

食後、客間でCharlotte とLucyは牧師からEmerson 父子の事などを聞き出すが、

"He has the merit---if it is one---of saying exactly what he means. He no more thought of putting you under an obligation than he thought of being polite. It is so difficult---at least, I find it difficult---to understand people who speak the truth.”

客間でのいろいろな話のやり取りの後、

There was a haze of disapproval in the air, but whether the disapproval was of herself, or of Mr.Beebe, or of the fashionable world at Windy Corner (Lucyの世界), or of the narrow world at Tunbridge Wells (Charlotteの世界), Lucy could not determine. She tried to locate it, but as usual she blundered.

The clergyman, inwardly cursing the female sex, bowed and departed.

内心、以上の気持ちを抱く牧師ではあるが、部屋の交換の仲介の労をとり、そして、この物語はこの4人の男女を中心に展開して行く。

Conversation.
Seeing the pictures of flowers such as tulips in Yokohama , taken by Jon 先生, we had fun. After that, we talked about the new era’s name “ 令和“ , such as its Chinese character’s origin, history and its derivation.  We were very enthusiastic.

Text : from “ What Jobs says “ : My second story is about love and loss.

I was lucky---I found what I loved to do early in life.
Woz and I started Apple in my parents’ garage when I was 20. We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4,000 employees. We had just released our finest creation---the Macintosh---a year earlier, and I had just turned 30. And then I got fired because our Board of Directors’ decision.

I had been rejected, but I still loved what I did. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.

During the next five years, I started a company named NeXT, another company named Pixar ( which is now the most successful animation studio in the world ) and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife. In a remarkable turn of events, Apple bought NeXT, I returned to Apple, and the technology we developed at NeXT is at the heart of Apple’s current renaissance. And Laurene and I have a wonderful family together.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.
