Penguin Little Black Classics: 1冊、80ペンス!





Penguin Little Black Classics review – affordable snippets of great literature


It was quite overwhelming, to open the box containing all 80 of these booklets – one for each year in the life of Penguin Books. Each is around 60 pages long; each is an extract from the Penguin Classics range. Where to start?

 ウォルト・ホイットマンは好きな詩人なので迷いなく購入。ロンドンに大火事があったということは知っているけど、それがいつだったのかは全く知らないので、誰だか全く知らないが、Samuel Pepysによる「The Great Fire of London」。そして、マルクス同様、どれだけの人々がきちんと読んだのか全く判らないし、読む気の全く無かった、でもタイトルに惹かれてNietzscheの「Aphorisms on Love and Hate」を購入。つまらなかったとしても、80ペンスだし。
