名人情人節系列——情書! 如果把情人節這個節日比喻作食物,那應該是百味雜陳的,如人飲水的。 對於一群單身貴族,愛情的酸臭味總圍繞在身邊;而一群有伴的人呢,則是甜上加甜,膩得更緊了。唉。 對於熱戀中的情侶中,彼此的暱稱又或情書大概是最美好的回憶之一吧。 於是憑著求真的精神,讓我們一起重回當年今日,看看那些家傳戶曉的人們叫過什麼名字,寫過什麼名字。 徐志摩 x 陸小曼 寫下「得之,我幸,不得,我命,如此而已」的徐志摩可謂柔情似水、筆下生花。但他與陸小曼的書信卻確實是另一番景象。 先看署名:「你的愚夫摩」、「摩的熱吻」、「你的頂親親的摩摩」、「摩摩吻你」 再看暱稱:「龍龍、眉眉我親親、眉我的心、眉我的乖」 如此多疊字的運用,足可見兩人情之真摯。 當然,內文也是十分⋯⋯浪漫的。 「小曼,你不是已經答應了我,做我永久的同伴了嗎?我再不能放鬆你,我的心肝,你是我的,你是我這一輩子唯一的成就,你是我的生命,我的詩。你完全是我的,一個個細胞都是我的,你要說半個不字,叫天雷打死我完事。」 局外人的我們未必能夠理解膩歪中的樂趣,姑且當其為歧異吧。 魯迅 x 許廣平 偶爾我們也能從暱稱管中窺豹,對名作家的私生活有更深了解。 若君看魯迅先生給許廣平的信,自稱多為「你的小白象」又或小象的畫像,正與其「做人皮要如象般厚,流點血,刺激一下了,也不要緊。第二,我們強韌地慢慢地走去。」的理念不謀而合。 至於許廣平的暱稱呢,為「乖姑」、「小刺蝟」皆因是因兩人非常喜歡在北京買的鎮紙小刺蝟,以物喻人、情。 那這些情書是怎麼寄出去的呢?當時魯迅先生往往在深夜書寫,而又不想等到明日早晨才寄出,只能翻牆去投遞書信。這還是那個筆鋒銳利的魯迅先生嗎? Shakespeare x One amongst his sea of lovers If there is one ingredient that would ruin a perfectly romantic dinner, that would be cliché. So instead of putting a salt shaker on the table, make sure you brush up on your Shakespeare, for he executed a not only paradoxical but also daring piece to confess his affection amongst other things. In Sonnet 130, the English national poet wastes no time in “roasting” his “mistress”, saying “My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun”. In the 11 lines that follow, the Bard continued in his complains, in the most ungentlemanly manner, about every detail from the “black wires (that) grow on her head” to “the breath that (his) mistress reeks”. One can imagine the storm that he served up with such “sincerity”. After a good old chuckle, it is fascinating to find that the sonnet in fact left behind an intriguing aftertaste, as the implications underlying the irony begin to sink in. Thus readers walk away warmed by the thought of the couple, as we come to realise that the lady whom Shakespeare so mercilessly berated, was without a doubt, someone who had the intellectually ability to truly appreciate the poet’s rather exotic ways of flirting.
