Literature appreciation course


Ryunosuke Akutagawa


 You must have a literary ability to appreciate a literary work.


No matter what masterpiece or profession you follow, a person without literary qualities is always a blind person in appreciation.


Although there is a difference between literary arts and fine art, it is a fact that anyone can know that there are many cases of being associated with the rich man who loves calligraphy and antiques.


However, since it depends on the extent to which it has literary qualities, it cannot be said that the presence or absence of tebles and chairs is obvious.


It is safe to say that I, etc., have no literary abilities compared to the literary people such as Geete or Siexpire.


Or, it may be almost equal to a writer who does not go down.


However, compared to Dr. Noda Daikata, there is a great deal of literary ability-at least haiku characteristic.


This is the same for you.


Then, people who are interested in literary arts will find themselves in love with literary genius and will never be at a loss.


It is certain that those who are at least confident will be happier.


However, if you say that you can easily appreciate literary works if you have a literary talent, this is not a problem.


After all, it is necessary to receive a considerable amount of training in appreciation as well as in creation.


However, it is said that Dannunzio published a collection of poems at the age of fifteen, and Taiga Ike made good writing at the time of fifteen.


However, since this is a monster called a genius, we ordinary people don't care.


Not only does it say that their precociousness was untrained, it is more reasonable to say that they were incredibly deeply trained in an amazingly short time.


Then, we, ordinary people, must be prepared to undergo training.


No, not just us ordinary people, if any genius has the ambition to become more than a genius, then naturally we should be trained and further trained.


Actually a biography of a genius-"Giyoote Biography" by Mr. Otoga Mori, Tatobaba (I think it goes without saying, but Mori-sensei always wrote so-called Geete as "Giyoote.")


Please read and see.


It can be said that genius is a talent that never misses the opportunity to undergo training at almost any time.


Then, how can it be useful to deepen the degree of appreciation or widen the range of appreciation as a result of having undergone training? Of course, deepening and widening itself enriches life. Is a fact.


Life is the same as a coffee shop that pays life for money instead of money, so if all kinds of things have a taste, there is no better happiness.


However, deepening the degree of appreciation and widening the range of appreciation should give a considerable profit to the creation.


Originally called art – no, this may be faster than a discussion.


The example and word is Rodin's story.


Rodin saw the sculpture by Michelangelo when he went to Florence.


I also saw a sculpture in the later years, which was called "unfinished" in the past, which is not just a sculpture.


However, it is not until the proof of Michel Angelo himself that he is called an unfinished work.


The appearance of a human being imitating in a lump of marble floats, but if you describe it like a rough man, there is a strange human being who has slept in the lump of marble since the beginning of the Heaven. It is a strange thing to say that he woke up.


When Rodin saw the Kafu speech, he was struck by an infinite beauty that was rather unfinished rather than saying.


After that, I came to create a work in which half humans were carved into that mass of marble, such as "Tatoba" "Poet and Miyuzu."


Then, the first step in Rodin's growth depends on his contact with the so-called unfinished work of Michel Andjero, but of course it is not the only one who saw Kakoufu.


Countless men and women have come and gone to the museum in Florence, where the works of Kafu were exhibited, but no one admitted the great beauty of Rodin.
