商品説明

WE were a party of six, gathered together one winter evening at the house of an old college friend. The conversation turned on Shakespeare, on his types, and how profoundly and truly they were taken from the very heart of humanity. We admired particularly their truth to life, their actuality. Each of us spoke of the Hamlets, the Othellos, the Falstaffs, even the Richard the Thirds and Macbethsーthe two last only potentially, it is true, resembling their prototypesーwhom he had happened to come across. “And I, gentlemen,” cried our host, a man well past middle age, “used to know a King Lear!” “How was that?” we questioned him. “Oh, would you like me to tell you about him?” “Please do.” And our friend promptly began his narrative. “ALL my childhood,” he began, “and early youth, up to the age of fifteen, I spent in the country, on the estate of my mother, a wealthy landowner in X- province. Almost the most vivid impression, that has remained in my memory of that far-off time, is the figure of our nearest neighbour, Martin Petrovitch Harlov. Indeed it would be difficult for such an impression to be obliterated: I never in my life afterwards met anything in the least like Harlov. Picture to yourselves a man of gigantic stature. On his huge carcase was set, a little askew, and without the least trace of a neck, a prodigious head. A perfect haystack of tangled yellowish-grey hair stood up all over it, growing almost down to the bushy eyebrows. On the broad expanse of his purple face, that looked as though it had been peeled, there protruded a sturdy knobby nose; diminutive little blue eyes stared out haughtily, and a mouth gaped open that was diminutive too, but crooked, chapped, and of the same colour as the rest of the face. The voice that proceeded from this mouth, though hoarse, was exceedingly strong and resonant… . Its sound recalled the clank of iron bars, carried in a cart over a badly paved road; and when Harlov spoke, it was as though some one were shouting in a high wind across a wide ravine. It was difficult to tell just what Harlov’s face expressed, it was such an expanse… . One felt one could hardly take it all in at one glance. But it was not disagreeableーa certain grandeur indeed could be discerned in it, only it was exceedingly astounding and unusual. And what hands he hadーpositive cushions! What fingers, what feet! I remember I could never gaze without a certain respectful awe at the four-foot span of Martin Petrovitch’s back, at his shoulders, like millstones. But what especially struck me was his ears! They were just like great twists of bread, full of bends and curves; his cheeks seemed to support them on both sides. Martin Petrovitch used to wearーwinter and summer alikeーa Cossack dress of green cloth, girt about with a small Tcherkess strap, and tarred boots.
