【專訪】愛爾蘭文藝范兒總統希金斯
   2014-12-17 10:53:05    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Han


小夥伴們好!提到愛爾蘭,你都想到了啥?島國、馬鈴薯、U2還是凜冽的寒風?你們知道愛爾蘭還是一個盛產文學家的地方嘛?


葉芝(William Butler Yeats)、蕭伯納(George Bernard Shaw)、詹姆斯·喬伊斯(James Augustine Aloysius Joyce)...不明覺厲有木有!


還有“第一毒舌”王爾德也是愛爾蘭人(不明白的回戳昨天的文章)。瞬間被愛爾蘭的文藝氣息所撲到。


連現任總統邁克爾·希金斯(Michael D. Higgins)也是詩人出身。


就在前兩天,在中國進行國事訪問的愛爾蘭總統希金斯接受了我們的同事,吳悠童鞋的專訪。


據說在採訪時希金斯老人一直面帶微笑,相當的和藹可親吶~


在訪問中,希金斯告訴我們:中國年輕人應弘揚其歷史悠久的傳統文化,認為王爾德的作品深受中國古代思想家莊子的影響。

訪談文稿精選:


Q:作為跨界詩人,最想與小夥伴們分享的愛爾蘭文化有哪些?


Michael D. Higgins: Well, I think that sharing has already started, I mean, I have, during the visit, been speaking about the influence, first of all, of the fourth century Chinese writer on Oscar Wilde, who really, we'll say, Chuang Tzu, with great influence on Oscar Wilde, before he wrote Lady Windermere's Fan (溫夫人的扇子) and many plays, that is a very interesting connection. But then some of the contemporary Irish writers, they have been translated into Chinese. I saw presented to me as a gift, the first volume of the translation of Finnegans Wake (芬尼根的守靈夜), James Joyce, and I would like to see Irish visual artists making it into the galleries.


Q:愛爾蘭的小夥伴對中國文化怎麼看?

Michael D. Higgins: I think they're interested in, again, rather similar things. And I think what China, young Chinese people, maybe need to assert it more, when they come to Europe, is the very long legacy of civilization that stands behind China. I think not enough is often made either of the extraordinary contribution that calligraphy represents in relation to the history of art, but also the different philosophical movements and how they shade into one another, certainly some of the basic principles in philosophy, are ones that come from the moment before Rene Descartes and the enlightenment in Europe as it is called.

Q:愛爾蘭對留學生有哪些優惠政策?


Michael D. Higgins: Well, I think first of all it's easier now, because after the establishment of joint fees with Britain, let's say for visiting, you can in fact get on a single visa, you can go to either Britain and Ireland, and it includes all of Ireland. But I think as well there are 2700 Chinese students who are studying at the present time, 2400 who are studying Irish masters here. There's a great advantage that if you are learning English in the cities and in the country of somebody of that 4 Nobel laureates in a language that they took on over just 100 years ago. And that you have the location of some of the principal science and technology companies in the world, and then you have an opportunity after study of spending a year involving yourself.
