At that time, he was often in a terrible time of debilitating God, and when he was suggested by his mother, "I wonder if I would be a fanatic?"
I was afraid and sick.
--The mother who gave birth to him cast a dark shadow in him before anything else.
/> Immediately after he was born, his mother went mad and he was adopted by the main Akutagawa family.
The Akutagawa family had one aunt, in addition to her adoptive father and adoptive mother (* 1), which was especially taken care of by him.
He said, "It is this aunt who is most like me in the house, and this aunt is also the one who has the most common spirits on the heart.
Once my aunt is old, I don't know if I'm here today. "
The towns of the home where he had a boy's day there.
It has never been a beautiful city.
Rather, it is a town that is always covered in dust.
However, it was in the dusty towns of his headquarters that he was most affected by his eyes to see nature.
So his beloved landscape-many of the landscapes that were portrayed with a formidable beauty in his work were always depressing colors.
I sometimes think of the gloomy water color of Horiwari in his home in the pages of his book.
He wrote about the Kaifu boy in his novel “Shinsuke Daisukeji's half life (Koji)”.
"He was a boy who had never sucked his mother's milk.
This is because my mother's body was weak.
He was sick of not knowing his mother's milk besides milk.
This was the essence of his lifetime.
From what time and for what reason, he believed that his ignorance was the milk of the milk.
If it were milk, it showed some weaknesses, but at the end, his friend broke through his densities, but he was wrong.
He therefore challenged his friends at any time.
It wasn't the case that horror and mess didn't hit him.
But every time he bravely conquered them.
It was certainly superstitious training, even if it was superstitious.
This Spartan training left a permanent scar on his character. "
This is similar to his own self-portrait.
Such stubbornness to show off his weaknesses-that dominated his character for the rest of his life.
I find the first tragedy of his character there.
In this way, his soul gradually grew up in such a lonely and gloomy landscape.
The uncle of his adoptive mother is Tsuto.
About Tsuto, there is "Mr. Ogai's" Kaori Hosoki "(Taisho 6th year).
In addition, Ryunosuke's own "Houjou Hell" (Taisho 5th year) is a story of his great uncle.
"Shinsuke Daidenji's half-life" (Taisho 13th year), along with the above-mentioned "Dragon book" (Taisho 15th year), has a rare and self-helping element in his work.
Not only that, but the work is also the origin of his masterpieces of his later years.
I would like to discuss in detail that it will come later.
At the school, he was a precocious, bright student.
/> His passion for books began in elementary school.
He laughed and cried many times over the book.
It was a rumor.
I asked the person in the book.
He passed through Ibsen, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Moopassan, and Strindbergi as soon as the Buddha of Tenjiku passed through his infinite past.
He learned everything from books.
There was never at least nothing in the books.
On the edge, he didn't look at the pedestrians on the streets to know his life.
Ning, tried to know the life in the book to look at the pilgrims.
He especially admired the novels and songs produced by Taira Tomoe at the end of the century.
彼はその冷たい光の中にやつと彼の前に展開する human comedy を發見した。
He glanced at him in the cold light, a human comedy developing before him.
Or even a glimpse of his own soul.
"From book to reality" always made sense to him.
He said later that Anatole France “I did not know my life was the result of my contact with other people.
This is the result of interacting with a book. "
I was very much in agreement with what I said.
At the same time, he greatly despised the worldly people who could not understand their life even if they were familiar with books.
