May 30th: Christopher Marlowe

Christopher Marlowe died on May 30th 1593, apparently in a pub brawl, aged only 29. Had he lived and continued to write his mighty lines, would Marlowe, not Shakespeare, now be remembered as the foremost marvel of the age?

孫康宜:沈從文的禮物https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/s4sh1jrxkzyaPo5Yqum4Yg 原創2017-05-29孫康宜     https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/s4sh1jrxkzyaPo5Yqum4Yg地球是透明的 沈從文先生

孫康宜:一直到最近, 我才從我的表弟志明那兒獲得正確的信息,原來姑丈的父親李沛階是沈從文的好朋友,所以兩家並非真正的“遠親” 的關係。參見沈從文“致李沛階”信, 《沈從文全集》, 張兆和主編(山西太原市: 北岳文藝出版社, 2002), 第25卷,頁364﹣366,並見編者註:“李沛階:昆明的開明士紳。 1944年作者一家遷居桃園新村,因租用李的草房而相識, 並成為朋友”。見《沈從文全集》, 頁366。
必須一提的是:2015 年10月初,沈從文先生的兩個兒子虎雛先生及龍朱先生到耶魯大學訪問,他們回憶起當年在雲南的經驗, 特別提到我的親戚李沛階先生(綽號“地主”)所作的許多有益於公眾的事業,尤其是他所設立的桃園新村,以及沈李兩家人的特殊友誼。因為沈從文夫婦認李沛階的女兒為乾女兒, 所以沈氏兄弟對我說,我現在也算是他們的“遠親” 了。(補注, 2015年10月)。

Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed. The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.
