『お母さんは「赤毛のアン」が大好き』

Sirayuki1128

先日買ってきたこの花、ネーム板が付いてなくて、名前を忘れてしまった。葉っぱが銀色に変わるのが特徴だそうだけど。

吉野朔実 『お母さんは「赤毛のアン」が大好き』 角川文庫 を読んだ。これは、『本の雑誌』に連載中の吉野さんの書評マンガを集めたもの。『お父さんは時代小説が大好き』の続編にあたる。

全部本にまつわる話で、長さも2~5ページとまちまち。「本を拾ったことがありますか?」や「いつも本が入っている」、「私はこれを”読みきった自慢”」等々、どの話も興味深いものだった。

中でもタイトルになった話は面白かった。吉野さんのお母さんは、もう何十回読んだかわからないくらい「赤毛のアン」が大好きだそうだけど、その理由は一言、「アンが変わってて面白い」から。

また、「猫好きなのに、飼おうとは思わないの?」と訊かれて「ううん、キライ嫌いよ でも他人の家の猫を都合のいい時だけかわいがるのは好き」と答えるお母さんであった。

そしてこの話のオチが、ちょっと笑えてなんともいいのだ。

本好きにはオススメの本。

『赤毛のアン』といえば、この後読んだ小谷野敦 『聖母のいない国』 河出文庫 にも『赤毛のアン』の話は出てきた。この本は、雑誌『ユリイカ』に、「アメリカ文学を読む」というテーマで連載したものを収めている。

小谷野さんは、1979年に放映された高畑勲によるアニメが、アンの魅力に捕らえられたきっかけだという。そして、なぜアンが日本の若い女性たちに人気があるのかを考察していて、なかなか洞察に富んだ内容になっている。ちなみに、この章のタイトルは「実現すべき自己などない時」。

オカダは『赤毛のアン』をちゃんと読んだことがなくて、一度映画を見たことがある程度。吉野さんのお母さんは別として、『赤毛のアン』が好きな女性にはいい印象を持っているのだけど、実際に出会ったことはないなあ。

『聖母のいない国』、ハードカバーを持ってますが数ページで挫折。それこそ『偶然』といっしょの頃に買ったような。
熱が冷めると再開するのも面倒なものですね(笑)。

『アン』はキライなのでもうたくさん。
アニメのはなおさらイヤ。映画を(ビデオだけど)観ながら冷めたツッコミを入れていたのはわたしです。
アンは変わり者というよりバカなのです。現実を見ようとしないから好きになれないんだと思う。でも幸せよね、彼女。

ヤヤーさん、こんばんは。
『聖母のいない国』、持ってたんですか。買ったときには読みたいと思ってたのに、他にもっと読みたい本ができて、そっちを読んでるうちにもう興味がなくなった、という本もよくありますよね。かといって、いつか読むかもと思うと処分もできないし。

>『アン』はキライなのでもうたくさん。
やっぱり(笑)。小谷野さんは、それでも日本では人気があり続けるだろうと書いていて、納得させられました。

オカダさん、こんにちは。
マンガならばさらさら読めるかしらと思い、図書館で「お母さんは『赤毛のアン』が大好き」を借りて読みました。今は『偶然の音楽』の音楽が届いています。借りに行かなきゃ。(ポール・オースターって知らなかったのですが、柴田さんの訳だし、などと思って)

『赤毛のアン』は特別好きなわけじゃないけど、一応『アンの娘リラ』まで読みました。三銃士の方は途中で挫折してしまったので、実は結構相性が良いのかもしれないですね。

柚木さん、こんばんは。
おお、もう既に読みましたか。おまけに『偶然の音楽』までリクエストするとは。この本読むと、『偶然の音楽』はなかなか面白そうですよね。
ポール・オースター、確か村上さんの訳で読んだことがあるなと思ったら、『翻訳夜話』の中の「オーギー・レンのクリスマス・ストーリー」でけでした柴田さんがいっぱい翻訳してますね。。

おお、『アンの娘リラ』までというと、10冊全部読破したということですね。すごいですね。それなりに読みやすくて面白かったということですね。少なくとも『三銃士』よりは感情移入しやすそうだし。

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
