四月是策蘭的逝世月,為紀念策蘭逝世39周年和《策蘭詩選》及《策蘭傳》新書出版。4月11日下午三點在油麻地Kubrick書店,由傾向出版社、Kubrick Poetry Society主辦,《字花》文學雜誌社、Kubrick書店恊辦的「紀念策蘭詩朗誦會」邀請您參加。策劃人貝嶺將帶著書專程前來香港。

策蘭是誰?策蘭是二戰後最重要的德語詩人。
策蘭是誰?策蘭是見証奧許維茲大屠殺歷史的代表性詩人。
策蘭是誰?策蘭是最具獨特個人語言的現代詩人。

《策蘭傳》和《策蘭詩選》催生者貝嶺認為﹕「策蘭是二十世紀最深的詩人,也是二十世紀最傷的詩人。」

保羅‧策蘭(Paul Celan), 1920年生於布科維納的切爾諾維茨(今屬烏克蘭),1942年,猶太裔雙親相繼於納粹集中營中被殺害。1944年,他攜帶《德法辭典》與《英德辭典》開始流亡,經布加勒斯特、維也納,最後在巴黎棲居二十年,1952年,他的〈死亡賦格〉一詩震撼德國,1970年4月,他跳入巴黎塞納河,自殺身亡。

策蘭歷經人世的黑暗,從德文、希伯來文、羅馬尼亞文、俄文到法文,多語言文化的流亡背景,這一切,使得他詩作豐富又複雜。德國國會為二戰中受難猶太人的哀悼和懺悔儀式上,策蘭詩作〈死亡賦格〉是必被朗誦的詩。

 逾六百頁、由詩人孟明翻譯、德中對照《策蘭詩選》的面世,是中文世界的大事,《策蘭傳》是中文世界第一本、也是唯一的一本策蘭傳記。沃夫岡‧埃梅里希(Wolfgang Emmerich)的《策蘭傳》(Paul Celan)是德語文壇公認寫得最好的策蘭研究傳記之一,此書對策蘭的生平和詩作有著深刻而淵博的探討。

當晚的主要節目有﹕貝嶺介紹策蘭生平、《策蘭傳》和《策蘭詩選》的出版、策蘭生平影像、策蘭讀詩的原聲錄音,多位香港詩人和貝嶺用中文、德國學者以德語分別朗誦策蘭詩作。
這一天,讓我們為策蘭守靈。
 
現場有剛出版的《策蘭傳》和《策蘭詩選》特售。
香港的「紀念策蘭詩朗誦會」竭誠邀請您。

u maintain: 'Celan is the most important German-language poet after the 2nd world war'.

public opinion divided. see:

'Paul Celan [paʊl ˈtselan] [...] war ein deutschsprachiger Lyriker.'

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Celan

'C'est peut être le plus grand poète de langue allemande de l'après-guerre, composant une œuvre absolument novatrice, consciente de venir après l'événement majeur de l'extermination des juifs d'Europe.'

--according to the editors: not serious enough

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Celan

'one of the major poets of the post-World War II era.'

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Celan#Celan:_poetry_and_poetics

are u Offending the Audience?

Celan & le Pont Mirabeau

why did Celan choose to die under the Mirabeau Bridge?
--http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Celan

this is a commonplace bridge among many others on the Seine.
Liebestod?

when we face thorny problems like:

what's a major poet?
[u maintain:] writing is a personal matter;
[u maintain:] poetry should be an expression of true feelings;

(let me add one:) How's the sex politics in Shakespeare's Othello , Macbeth, Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Twelfth Night,...?
(NB: the Bard plays a major role in both Fr & German Romanticism.)

we've got little choice:

present a solid argument;
be sheltered under an authority;

seek public opinion
(how about L'Opinion Publique in Offenbach's Orphée aux Enfers?);

join the club of the silent majority
(if u have no duty of care)
like Traudl Junge in Oliver Hirschbiegel's Downfall

--(der Untergang),
an Oscar nominated 2004 German / Austrian drama film.
In the year 2002, she spoke to the camera on her after-war reflection on Sophie Scholl (Sophie Scholl – The Final Days).

Celan & intertextuality

the old Q: Das Liebestod.

language is not simply a tool--we can drive any cars from any countries.
it's a form of life, a world-picture, an institution shared by a community.

German induces me much more sentiments than English--i can hardly sing any Downland.

the German conservatives, like the French, Italian, & Chinese ones, are proud to conserve their good traditions. they teach Minnelieder to their children in senior high schools.

can we understand Celan better in the context of Das Liebestod?
Liebe here implies not only EROS, but a long chivalrous tradition.

Kenneth Clark supports Wittgenstein's theroy of language?

'i have a feeling that one should not try to assess a culture without knowing its language; so much of its character is connected with its actual use of words'.

dulce et decorum pro Amorem mori!

Jean-Pierre Melville: 'Le Silence de la Mer' (film, 1949):

--j'ai éprouvé une grand estime pour les personnes qui aiment leur patrie
(i've a deep respect for people who love their country),

said the German army officer to his French landlord in rural France under Nazi occupation.

Celan translated Apollinaire's
'les colchiques'.

'PLAY DEATH MORE SWEETLY'.

prof J FELSTINER: this is the reason why Celan's dies under the Mirabeau Bridge which runs across the Seine.

--J FELSTINER - Translating Literatures, Translating Cultures: New Vistas …, 1998

http://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&lr=&oi=qs&q=celan+apollinaire+author:j-felstiner

for Celan, Apollinaire, baudelaire, pierre de ronsard, francesco petrarca,...
LOVE is poisonous.

if u know Latin, u will have a longer list.

Celan calls for the Chinese
to cooperate w/ each other

for a wider picture of Celan's poetic creativity
(we can never get the whole picture--how do u know whether the Bard always used Dowland's lute music at the beginning of Twelfth Nite?),
we need people at least familiar w/ english, french, italian, & russian poetry.

a list of the poets translated by Celan:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Celan#Writers_translated_by_Celan

Ungaretti & some of the french poets here are much indebted to the Gk, latin, and christian traditions.

for the creativity in poetry translation, pls see

traditions alive & kicking:
2 HK poems in English

outloud, fringe club, april 1, 2009

a young Western lady read an Aubade in sonnet composed by herself:

a parting couple like Romeo & Juliet (act 3, scene 5). HK MTR siren replaced the English lark.

another Western lady cited a verse by Rumi, a 13-century Persian, in her poem:
'let's merge together in ecstasy'.

did Rumi read the Androgyne stories
by Plato &/or Ovid in Arabic?
did the Persians also have 'Dionysiac' ecstasy?
is such merge at the same time physical & metaphysical?
cf: J Donne's holy sonnets.

traditions still 'play a part in our imaginative lives'
(k clark: civilisation/
romance & reality).
