BBC: Armandos Tale of Charles Dickens  | BBC 狄更斯其人


     阿曼多·阿努奇通过研究狄更斯的自传体小说《大卫·科波菲尔》探究了狄更斯究竟是如何成为了世界顶尖的英国作家。虽然狄更斯常被人们认为是一个社会改革家,并因为其维多利亚风情浓厚的著作而闻名天下,但是,BBC却另辟蹊径,从作品出发,研究为什么狄更斯的作品如此引人入胜,他的作品对21世纪的今天有何种启示...

In the time of  Bleak House, there were lawyers who prolonged litigation for their own advantage, there have been ever since, and there always will be. That’s always going to be a problem.

One thing I do want to ask is when you read these accounts of the law, do you feel implicated, do you feel part of that, there’s always a tendency, when for example, politicians looking at the Thick of It would tell me ”oh, I know someone just like that.” So it’s never themselves, but there’s always someone that they know. I just wonder how you feel?

It’s a fair cop, guv. You have got me bang to rights. Some of it's timeless. Ah yeah, you see it all the time, not me, obviously, but

Not me, definitely, I mean, the great thing about it is that it is hugely entertaining.

That’s right.

The great thing about Dickens is his theatricality. It' a series of vivid scenes.

And how about today, if Dickens were writing today, then, what in the way the system works now, is there anything you think he would immediately seize on?

Oh, I don’t think he'd be short of material.

It’s not just in our institutions that we can sometimes spot the timelessness of Dickens’ attacks. The characters who dominated his institutions can seem familiar too. Today we may have the likes of Mr. Murdoch, but in Little Dorrit, Dickens gives us a Mr. Merdle.

Mr. Merdle was immensely rich, a man of prodigious enterprise, a Midas who turned all he touched to gold. He was in everything good, from banking to building, he was in Parliament of course, he was in the City, necessarily, the weightiest of men had said to projectors. Now what name have you got? Have you got Merdle? And the reply being in the negative had said, then I won’t look at you.

The whole novel is a depiction partly of this figure. One figure, Merdle moving through society, and first the politicians, and then the media, and then the law, all come to pay homage to him, but he himself is strange shadowy figure, whose bank collapses, whose money fritters away, and who ends up killing himself in a bath. It’s a frightening and sadly familiar depiction of the whole British society converging around one man who tries to control it and in the end, imploding, now surely something as horrific as that 150 years ago couldn’t happen today. I mean we know so much more now, don’t we?
