A Room with a View by E. M. Forster ( 〜 63 )

イタリアの太陽のエネルギーに感化されたようにここでの物語はShakespeareの劇場芝居もかくありなん、と言わぬばかりに浮かれはしゃいでいます。そしてE.M. Forsterの博識が所狭しと列挙されていて、それを受け止め、流麗に解説、ご講義されて行く久守先生に感銘を受けます。

前日の事件後、
At breakfast next morning Lucy took decisive action. Yesterday had been a muddle---queer and odd. Since she could not unravel the tangle, she must take care not to re-enter it.

そこでLucyは一人になることを避ける為にCharlotteと町へ用足しに出かけるが、前日と全く同じ場面に戻ることになり、事件を題材に小説にすると意気込むMiss Lavishに遭遇し事件の詳細を詮索されそうになり、その後、

““Mr. Eager! Why, how nice! What a pleasant surprise! ” said Miss Bartlett.

高名なEager牧師が登場し、2人は遠出に誘われる。

An invitation from the chaplain was something to be proud of.

しかし牧師は会話の中で前日の殺人事件に言及し、またEmmerson 親子の噂話から挙句の果てはGeorge の、妻に対する殺害までも言及する。

This successful morning left no pleasant impressions on Lucy.

どういう経緯からか、遠出はMr. Beebe一行と一緒ということになり、神聖な牧師2人、神話に出てくるような名前の御者のカップルと宿の連中の、珍道中のような模様を呈し、そこに華麗なイタリア語が場面を囃し立てる。

Lucy, elegantly dressed in white, sat erect and nervous amid these explosive ingredients. She looked on the expedition as the work of Fate.

In an open manner George had shown that he wished to continue their intimacy. She had refused, not because she disliked him, but because she did not know what had happened, and suspected that he did know. And this frightened her.

そうして、一行は馬車を止めて、丘の上の散策に繰り出す。
牧師を探しに出かけたLucyは御者の案内で藪の中を進んでいくと、岬の端に出て

The view was forming at last; she could discern the river, the golden plain, other hills.
At the same moment the ground gave way, and with a cry she fell out of the wood. Light and beauty enveloped her. She had fallen onto a little open terrace, which was covered with violets from end to end.

George had turned at the sound of her arrival. For a moment he contemplated her, as one who had fallen out of heaven. He saw radiant joy in her face, he saw the flowers beat against her dress in blue waves. He stepped quickly forward and kissed her.

Before she could speak, almost before she could feel, the silence of life had been broken by the voice of Miss Bartlett, who stood brown against the view.

◎Oral Class

Conversation

There have happened some heinous affairs recently, such as one of the cases that a man ,who had lived in seclusion, stabbed the people at the bus stop to death .
Today, the problems of seclusion have been close-up because seclusion ranges from the old to the young. The Age of INTERNET has broaden the world to humans. Men can get any information or data from the world if you want to. INTERNET seems to link the people all over the world like a web. But because the function of it can be controlled by a man alone, it could happen to sever the community; it means we can accomplish all completely without any communications with others. Because of the characters of addiction and self completeness of INTERNET, without knowing it, we tend to live alone, in seclusion.

Stressfulness, solitude and many crimes in the competitive world seem to offer chances to the happy medicine prescribed from the doctor and the coddling of the American mind , just same as in Japan.

Steve Job’s Speech was viewed on line.
