About this Episode

日文的「文学者」是什么意思?本期我们从美国人利比英雄的观点谈起。

节目中提到的部分例子:

  • 文人 = literatus
  • Truman Capote 对 Jack Kerouac 小说的评价:That’s not writing, it’s only typing。
  • 利比英雄提出的两种可行但都有问题的译法:「あれはライティングじゃない。単なるタイピングにしかすぎない」与「あれは書いているじゃない。ただタイプライターを打っているだけだ。」

English summary: What does bungakusha mean? Writer? Author? ‘Literary author’? Literary scholar? Researcher? In Hideo Levy's view, the word denotes something beyond any existing English term. Just as Truman Capote's diss of Jack Kerouac (‘That's not writing, it's ony typing’) can't be easily translated into Japanese, to fully understand the concept of bungakusha requires a deep engagement with the Japanese language, if not its literary milieu.
