Homesickness

 

By Yu Guangzhong

When was a child
Homesickness is a small stamp
I am here
Mother is there
When I grew up
Homesickness is a narrow steamer ticket
I am here
The bride is there
Later
Homesickness is a low grave
I am outside
Mother is inside
Now
Homesickness is a shallow channel of bay
I am here
The mainland is over there

 巨匠陨落!

文坛“璀璨五彩笔”余光中去世 享年90岁

[苏菲诗歌&翻译网 转载凤凰新闻综合 2017-12-14 苏菲翻译编辑报道]

 

       据台媒东森新闻报道,诗人余光中在高雄医院过世,享年90岁。高医中午表示,病人家属要求保密,不公开病情,但消息为真;而中山大学表示,今天(14日)早上10点04分过世,家属不愿被打扰。原先只以为是天气多变、气温偏低,到医院检查後决定住院静养,没想到疑似有些小中风,肺部感染、转进加护病房;旅居在外的女儿们也从国外赶回,谢绝采访,结果1天之隔,这位作品多选入课本、文坛的“璀璨五彩笔”就过世,亲人与文坛好友都十分伤痛。

      受到文坛大师梁实秋称赞“右手写诗、左手写散文,成就之高、一时无两”的余光中,在现代诗、现代散文、翻译、评论等文学领域都有涉猎,大学时期就读外文系的他,还没毕业就在文学刊物上投稿诗作,受到梁实秋赏识後出版诗集处女作《舟子的悲歌》;毕业後,更与覃子豪、锺鼎文、邓禹平等当时文坛上活跃的青年诗人们,共同创立蓝星诗社,《蓝星》周刊也成为文坛一本非常有影响力的着作。

       余光中先生从事文学创作超过半世纪,政大台文所教授陈芳明曾赞誉余光中在的地方就是文学中心,熟知的诗作有选录课本中的〈车过枋寮〉、〈翠玉白菜〉、〈乡愁〉等,还有杨弦、李泰祥等众多音乐家谱成歌曲,成为流行歌的经典;散文作品则有〈我的四个假想敌〉、〈听听那冷雨〉,翻译则以《梵谷传》最经典、最为人所知。

 


 

《乡愁》

余光中

 

小时候
乡愁是一枚小小的邮票
我在这头
母亲在那头
长大后
乡愁是一张窄窄的船票
我在这头
新娘在那头
后来啊
乡愁是一方矮矮的坟墓
我在外头
母亲在里头
而现在
乡愁是一湾浅浅的海峡
我在这头
大陆在那头
