读19世纪Walter Pater写的“The Renaissance”《文艺复兴》

“Walter Pater(佩特)是19世纪末主张“为艺术而艺术”的美学运动的理论家和代表人物。批评家罗斯金对他有不少影响,但佩特的美学观点更加脱离社会现实,他认为艺术的目的在于培养人的美感,寻求美的享受,而不应受社会或道德观念的制约。他的批评论著表现了独特的个性和鉴赏力。他是个严谨认真、功力浑厚的散文家,在语言上力求完美和谐,但风格过于雕琢。他的美学见解对王尔德的思想和创作有较大的影响 。”

上面一段是公众对Pater的评价,说他的文字过于雕琢,但是我读他的“The Renaissance”《文艺复兴》感觉就是喜欢他这样最求完美的艺术雕琢!下面这段就是他在“The Renaissance”里面“雕琢”的一段非常美的文字!

“To burn always with this hard, gem-like flame, to maintain this ecstasy, is success in life. In a sense it might even be said that our failure is to form habits: for, after all, habit is relative to a stereotyped world, and meantime it is only the roughness of the eye that makes two persons, things, situations, seem alike. While all melts under our feet, we may well grasp at any exquisite passion, or any contribution to knowledge that seems by a lifted horizon to set the spirit free for a moment, or any stirring of the sense, strange dyes, strange colours, and curious odours, or work of the artist’s hands, or the face of one’s friend. Not to discriminate every moment some passionate attitude in those about us, and in the very brilliancy of their gifts some tragic dividing on their ways, is, on this short day of frost and sun, to sleep before evening.”

还没有读完Pater的这本《文艺复兴》,但是大概的感觉就是他希望从那个时代的二线明星里面挖掘珍宝,而且里面确实有很多鲜为人知的宝藏!欣赏他们确实是一种美好!​​​​
