グッド・バイ (Good-Bye)

By: Osamu Dazai

In the spring of 1948, he was working on a novelette scheduled to be serialized in the Asahi Shimbun newspaper, titled Guddo bai (Goodbye). On 13 June 1948, Dazai and Tomie finally succeeded in killing themselves, drowning in the rain-swollen Tamagawa Canal near his house. Their bodies were not discovered until June 19, which by eerie coincidence was his 39th birthday. 『朝日新聞』に連載予定だったユーモア小説「グッド・バイ」が未完の遺作となった。奇しくもこの作品の13話が絶筆になったのは、キリスト教のジンクスを暗示した太宰の最後の洒落だったとする説(檀一雄)もある。(ウィキペディア)...

老殘遊記 Lao Can You Ji (Mr Derelict)

By: 劉鶚 Liu O ; Liu E

老殘遊記為著名的晚清四大諷刺小說之一,因當時清朝腐敗,國勢衰頹,內憂外患紛擾不斷,國弱民窮,而官僚卻貪腐不堪,劉鶚以生花妙筆,藉著遊記中的主人翁老殘旅遊之見聞來刺諷官僚的剛愎與虐民,雖有暗諷時局之意,但遊記中也時時透露出老殘(影射劉鶚本人)對社會的關懷與瞭解。本書對於晚清的政治與社會民情有相當的描述,且非常寫實。這些都反映在老殘或夢或醒的遊歷過程中,事實上,他也藉由老殘的夢境來映射他對當時官場與社會現實的看法。-- 此書不僅為政治類或社會批判性小說,亦是相當成功的遊記類小說,因作者的寫景、寫人與寫情的能力極高,讓人不知不覺地跟著老殘一起遊歷黃河賞美景,一起聽黑妞白妞「大珠小珠落玉盤」般神妙的說書絕技,一起在夢境中歷險,並一起來斷時局,甚至在必要時斷案解惑。 (Summarized by 林慧菁 Huei-Chin Lin)...

The Chinese Union Version (CUV) (Chinese: 和合本; pinyin: héhé běn; literally harmonized/united version) is the predominant Chinese language translation of the Bible used by Chinese Protestants. It is considered by many to be the Chinese Protestant’s Bible. The CUV was translated by a panel with members from many different Protestant denominations, using the English Revised Version as a basis and original manuscripts for crosschecking. Work on the CUV began in 1890 and originally three versions of the CUV were planned: two classical Chinese versions and a vernacular Mandarin version. The CUV was completed in 1919, with one amalgamated classical Chinese translation and one vernacular Mandarin translation. With the onset of May Fourth Movement, and the associated New Culture Movement, the CUV is the first translated work to be published in Vernacular Chinese.

Introductory Comment The title of this volume speaks of wisdom, a term defined with difficulty and that links formal learning and knowledge to insight, sometimes of a spiritual nature. This is appropriate. Wisdom is seldom imparted, although paths to it are offered in various sacred and profane writings. In the Judeo-Christian culture in the English language, this is traditionally associated with the Wisdom Literature of the Talmud and the Bible, namely Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Song of Songs. Sometimes other books are included, such as those of Job, Psalms and Sirach. Other the fi rst three, my own poor attempts at English poetic versions of the latter two aim to respect the wisdom tradition in modern form. But the first of those three – Proverbs – proved too daunting a task. That is one reason I was very pleased when my old friends Charan and Pakapun moved to preserve some traditional sayings of the Thai culture, and asked if I could offer some similar English sayings. These few pages are the result, now edited a decade after their first publication....

唐诗三百首 卷一 Three Hundred Tang Poems, Volume 1

By: Various

The Tang Dynasty (618 to 907) was a golden age of Chinese culture: religion and philosophy, painting and calligraphy, sculpture, architecture and music all reached peaks of perfection. Poetry was the epitome of the arts: a scholastic requirement, a route to fame, a moulder of character. Nearly 50,000 poems of the Tang have survived. The collection 'Three Hundred Tang Poems' was compiled around 1763. It comprises six volumes, with poems grouped by verse form. Volume 1 covers the 'ancient verse' style in five-character lines (poems 1 to 35), and 'folk song style verse' (36 to 45). The masters Li Bai, Du Fu and Wang Wei are well represented here. Recordings in this volume are in Cantonese, Hokkien, Mandarin and Taiwanese, as indicated in the titles; some are spoken, others are sung. (Summary by David Barnes)...

弟子规 Di Zi Gui

By: 李毓秀 Li Yuexiu

Di Zi Gui (弟子规), in English, means the Standards for being a Good Student and Child. It is an ancient book based on the teaching of the great Confucius that emphasises on the basic requisites for being a good person and guidelines for living in harmony with others. The source for the main outline of it is from Analects of Confucius, Book 1, Chapter 6, where Confucius said: A young man should be a good son at home and an obedient young man abroad, sparing of speech but trustworthy in what he says, and should love the multitude at large but cultivate the friendship of his fellow men. If he has any energy to spare from such action, let him devote it to making himself cultivated. There are altogether seven chapters in Di Zi Gui, with each chapter listing one duty that a good person should follow in life. (From Wikipedia) Chinese summary to follow....
