  • 阴暗的洞穴中,一个石人沉睡了一百多年,一同沉睡的还有那执迷不悟的罪恶之心和一个难以得到宽恕的灵魂。这石人的躯体是如何来到这个洞穴中,又是为何变成了这般模样?石人的灵魂归处在哪里?

    霍桑是美国19世纪文艺复兴时期最重要的小说家之一,其艺术成就得到评论界广泛的肯定,也受到众多读者的青睐。小说《石人》继承了霍桑一贯的写作主题,揭示了人性的罪恶和内心的黑暗,同时也表达了要通过善行和自忏来洗刷罪恶、净化心灵、得到拯救的主张。

  • 内容简介
  • 霍桑的短篇小说《石人》讲述了一个自私自利的宗教狂热分子,抛弃了人世间的温暖与宽容,只身来到阴森的石洞中修行。他厌恶其他人,自以为是,不愿帮助别人,也拒绝别人的帮助,甚至是为他带来解药的善良信徒,最终他化成了石人,永远被人类社会抛弃。故事中融入了霍桑对于罪恶和救赎的辩证看法,并通过天使般的玛丽•格非的形象,提倡了宗教引人向善的内在力量。

    Richard Digby, who believes his philosophy on life is the correct one, refuses to share his ideas with anyone else. His heart ails from collections of calculous. He leaves his home, deciding to become a hermit. In the wilderness he discovers a cave and decides to make it his new home, a place where he can meditate.One day, the spirit of Mary Goffe appears before him, and she asks Digby to return to mankind. She says he needs mankind and the path to salvation is not within the cave. He orders her to leave him alone. She asks him to drink from the fountain and to let her read the Bible alongside him, and then his heart will be cured of its ailment. He refuses this also, and his heart stops.

    Years later, a family discovers the cave. Digby still sits at the mouth of the cave, but his body has been turned to adamant. The family closes the mouth of the cave to conceal the horrible image.

  • 作者简介
  • 纳撒尼尔•霍桑(1804年7月4日—1864年5月19日)。19世纪前半期美国最伟大的小说家。 美国心理分析小说的第一人,因深受家庭和清教徒思想的影响在其作品中更多地反映人心深处的恶。其代表作品有:短篇小说集《古宅青苔》、《重讲一遍的故事》等,长篇小说《红字》、《带七个尖顶的阁楼》、《福谷传奇》、《玉石人像》等。这些都是世界文学史上不可多得的经典名著。其代表作品《红字》已成为世界文学的经典之一。

    Nathaniel Hawthorne (born Nathaniel Hathorne; July 4, 1804—May 19, 1864) was an American novelist and short story writer. Much of Hawthorne's writing centers on New England, many works featuring moral allegories with a Puritan inspiration. His fiction works are considered part of the Romantic Movement and, more specifically, dark romanticism. His themes often center on the inherent evil and sin of humanity, and his works often have moral messages and deep psychological complexity. His published works include novels, short stories, and a biography of his friend Franklin Pierce. His short story collections include Twice-Told Tales and Mosses from an Old Manse. His novels include The Scarlet Letter and The House of the Seven Gables. The Scarlet Letter was published in 1850, followed by a succession of other novels. It has become one of the classics in the world's literature.

  • 编辑推荐
  • 霍桑是心理小说的开创者,擅长剖析人的“内心”。他着重探讨道德和罪恶的问题,主张通过善行和自忏来洗刷罪恶、净化心灵,从而得到拯救。然而霍桑并非全写黑暗,他在揭露社会罪恶和人的劣根性的同时,对许多善良的主人公寄予极大的同情。

  • 媒体书评
  • 霍桑描写黑暗的巨大力量,是由于受到加尔文派教义关于与生俱来的堕落与原罪思想的影响。没有一位思想深邃的人能完全摆脱这种思想所发生的各种形式的影响。——梅尔维尔

    霍桑的小说“属于艺术的最高层次,一种服从于非常崇高级别的天才的艺术。”——爱伦·坡

    Nathaniel Hawthorne's reputation as a writer is a very pleasing fact, because his writing is not good for anything, and this is a tribute to the man.—Ralph Waldo Emerson

    The fine thing in Hawthorne is that he cared for the deeper psychology, and that, in his way, he tried to become familiar with it.—Henry James

    The style of Hawthorne is purity itself. His tone is singularly effective—wild, plaintive, thoughtful, and in full accordance with his themes... We look upon him as one of the few men of indisputable genius to whom our country has as yet given birth.—Edgar Allan Poe

        寓意不错,但有点莫名其妙

        陈功

        我感觉这篇小说想法很不错,抛弃世界就是抛弃自己,但是人物的性格的设定有点奇怪。有点像小时候讲的大灰狼的故事,大灰狼怎么怎么样,然后怎么怎么样,哦,大灰狼不是一个好东西。感觉个人价值取向挺重的,情节有点平淡,人物刻画有点僵硬。展开↓

        “爱过”、“痛过”的人生才是完整的

        瓷杯心里的温柔

        世界上的的确确地存在这样的一些人:自私自利的宗教狂热分子,厌恶他人,自以为是的抛开人世间的温暖与宽容,只是自顾自地生存。拒绝帮助别人,也拒绝别人的帮助。这样的人往往把自己想的过于圣人化了,或在意自己为中心的世界里,以为出了自己以外的人都是万恶不赦的罪人。其本意已经是要脱离社会了,然而,令我想不明白的是为什么要这样。……展开↓
