乔治·戈登·拜伦(英国19世纪初诗人)编辑锁定同义词拜伦一般指乔治·戈登·拜伦(英国19世纪初诗人)

乔治·戈登·拜伦(George Gordon Byron,1788—1824),是英国19世纪初期伟大的浪漫主义诗人,代表作品有《恰尔德·哈洛尔德游记》、《唐璜》等,《普罗米修斯》那样的诗,表示向他的压迫者反抗到底的决心, 并在他的诗歌里塑造了一批“拜伦式英雄”。他不仅是一位伟大的诗人,还是一个为理想战斗一生的勇士,积极而勇敢地投身革命——参加了希腊民族解放运动,并成为领导人之一。

十岁时,拜伦家族的世袭爵位及产业(纽斯泰德寺院是其府邸)落到他身上,成为拜伦第六世勋爵[1] 1801年,为了同拜伦的贵族地位和身份相称,家里决定送他到一所素有名望的学校——哈罗公学就读。这所在1571年由约翰·里恩创建的学校,在英国历史上培养了许多知名的人物,其中对拜伦十分崇拜的丘吉尔首相就是这所学校毕业的。


拜伦出国作东方的旅行,是为了要“看看人类,而不是只在书本上读到他们”,还为了扫除“一个岛民怀着狭隘的偏见守在家门的有害后果”。


诗人的热情在作品中是无处不在和无可遏止的,如他对海洋辽阔无垠的崇高礼赞:[3]

奔腾吧,你深不可测的靛青色的海洋!
千万艘船舰在你身上驰驱,痕迹不留。


又如他对月亮充满诗情画意的动人描绘:

月亮升起了;呵,是多可爱的夜!
流水般的月光向着海波倾泻;
也许姑娘们正为少年的情话所颠倒,

至于我们呢,且等上岸再尝这种味道![3]


在拜伦的《东方叙事诗》中,出现了一批侠骨柔肠的硬汉,他们有海盗、异教徒、被放逐者,这些大都是高傲、孤独、倔强的叛逆者,他们与罪恶的社会势不两立,孤军奋战与命运抗争,追求自由,他们高傲倔强,既不满现实,要求奋起反抗,具有叛逆的性格;但同时又显得忧郁、孤独、悲观,脱离群众,我行我素,始终找不到正确的出路, 最后总是以失败告终。拜伦通过他们的斗争表现出对社会不妥协的反抗精神,同时反映出自己的忧郁、孤独和彷徨的苦闷。这些就是文学史上著名的“拜伦式英雄”。由于这些形象具有作者本人的思想性格特征,因此被称作“拜伦式英雄”。[4]


To write a poem, you gotta be either madly in love or madly in miserable - mystery reveals, but so ugly blood true. It's ignorance that led to his death.  You suck up to literature, trying to find inspiration in his work, but not in his life! Be alert, an author's life will kill your inspiration from his work. His life was ugly, not as pure as his work poems. Why?


The Bible is good, God is great, but human being is just sinful.


Agreed on "I watched the whole two and a half-hours waiting for the production of "Byron" to spark into life. Not a splutter, not even a glimmer. It was utter tedium, if not downright boredom, from start to finish. "


Sad - an icon in my early years disappeared upon my visit of his life story.  Never look back as you'll disappoint on those heroes in your life.


Rule:

separate his/her art work from his/her personal life. Enjoy his/her art forms, but don't be curious to peek onto their life - spoil your good images of their art work. Sometimes, their good work was created by their ill style of life - a way to create something the ordinary can't.

A poetic failure
                       11 September 2006 | by                         – See all my reviews

I've always been enthusiastic about period dramas, an art form in which the BBC has excelled in the past. This presentation of "Byron" was unbelievable. Unbelievably bad! The script was dreadful, the acting uninspired, and all the characters woefully insipid. Apparently Byron was "mad bad and dangerous to know", and set the ladies hearts all-a-flutter. Not in this production. Here he appeared as a tawdry jumped-up little squirt instead of a passionate hero of womenfolk and the catalyst for the Greek struggle for independence. Being born with a club-foot Byron walked with a limp. This portrayal of the man was just limp all over.

Byron was in reality an arrogant, cruel, egocentric, sexual (actually bisexual) predator, and although handsome and obviously attractive to women, in my opinion a generally loathsome creature who thought nothing of the tears of others he abandoned, both the women who loved him and whom he mostly abused, and his children.

He has been dubbed by some as the ultimate romantic. I find nothing remotely romantic about him. He led a debauched, drunken, chaotic life in the mode of many modern-day pop and film "stars", who have equally misguided beliefs of their own importance, of being do-gooders and/or of being some sort of fighter for the underdog. I haven't much time for those similarly irresponsible idiots either. Byron didn't even see any heroic action in Greece, but died a distinctly nasty unheroic death there, caused mainly by incompetent doctors, and I for one think he deserved it. However somehow he became a catalyst for future action for Greek independence. Lord knows why or how! Thankfully Byron's early death spared us of more of his dreary, hypocritical, and over-revered poetry, and probably saved more women of ignoble treatment at his hands.

I watched the whole two and a half-hours waiting for the production of "Byron" to spark into life. Not a splutter, not even a glimmer. It was utter tedium, if not downright boredom, from start to finish.

In my opinion Byron's works should be flung on the back burner, and this dramatisation of his life should be accorded the same treatment. However I do realise I'll probably be in the minority with my opinions. C'est la vie! I think the BBC lost its nous with this one. Although I detest the man and his works, with a little more effort and research, the production team could have brought him to life, but they didn't even come close to showing the deplorable excuse for a man that was the real Byron.

Byron had it all. He was attractive, aristocratic, talented, and sexually irresistible. At 25 he was England's most famous man, the world's greatest celebrity. The women threw themselves into his arms. Men wanted to be like him. He lived for excesses, scandalizing his country.

习近平访问英国 盘点那些年打动我们的英国文艺


2015年10月20日08:07    来源:人民网-文化频道    手机看新闻打印网摘纠错商城分享推荐     字号

“冬天来了,春天还会远吗?”正如英国诗人雪莱的诗一样,无数英国文艺作品曾漂洋过海传到中国,一部小说,一篇散文,一首诗,一幅画,一部电影,一部电视剧,一曲音乐,都曾以各自魅力去吸引、感染、打动国人。10月19日至23日,国家主席习近平出访英国,“我出访所到之处,最陶醉的是各国各民族人民创造的文明成果。”2014年,习近平在文艺工作座谈会上列举了百余位国内外文艺名家,在提到英国文学时,他谈到了乔叟、弥尔顿、拜伦、雪莱、济慈、狄更斯、哈代、萧伯纳、透纳等大师。相信本次习近平对英国的出访,必将再次勾起国人对英国历史上灿若星辰的文艺名人与名作的回味。

《拜伦雪莱济慈诗精编》封面,长江文艺出版社

冬天来了,春天还会远吗?——雪莱《西风颂》

听到的声音很美,听不到的声音更美。——济慈《希腊古瓮颂》

怎能忘记旧日朋友,心中能不怀想;旧日朋友岂能相忘,友谊地久天长。我们曾经终日游荡,在故乡的青山上,我们也曾历尽苦辛,到处奔波流浪。友谊万岁,朋友友谊万岁,举杯痛饮,同声歌唱,友谊地久天长。——《友谊地久天长》

谈及英国诗歌,大家首先会想到“冬天来了,春天还会远吗?”这样的名句,这句诗正出自英国著名浪漫主义诗人珀西·比希·雪莱名篇《西风颂》的结尾。雪莱在中国的影响力毋庸置疑,连诗人徐志摩都曾坦言,“我实在够不上读他(雪莱的《解放了的普罗米修斯》),因为太浓厚伟大了。他的小诗,很轻灵,很微妙,很真挚,很美丽,读的时候,心灵真是颤动起来,犹如看一块纯洁的水晶,真是内外通灵。”

习总书记在文艺工作座谈会上提到的约翰·济慈乔治·戈登·拜伦也是与雪莱齐名的英国浪漫主义诗人。济慈在创作中擅长将情感与自然完美结合,《夜莺颂》就是他听到夜莺的啼声后,诗兴勃发,在三小时内一气呵成的作品。同是浪漫主义诗人,拜伦则用作品塑造了一批“拜伦式英雄”,其代表作《唐璜》被作家歌德称为“绝顶天才之作”。

此外,还有一位英国诗人不容忽视,那就是约翰·弥尔顿,他的代表作《失乐园》全文12卷,以史诗一般的磅礴气势揭示了人的原罪与堕落,刻画出了撒旦、亚当与夏娃等一系列神话故事中的形象。《失乐园》与荷马的《荷马史诗》、阿利盖利·但丁的《神曲》并称为西方三大诗歌。

除了上述诗歌,还有一首古老的英国诗歌让国人朗朗上口,那就是著名的《友谊地久天长》。该诗是由十八世纪苏格兰诗人罗伯特·彭斯根据当地父老口传录下的,后被谱了乐曲,在世界范围内广为流传,大家最为熟知的就是它曾被电影《魂断蓝桥》用作主题曲。
