幸福不在于知识中,而在于获取知识,在不懈的求知中,我们永远受到祝福;但无所不知则是魔鬼的诅咒。在这本书中,将感受到作者对上帝、死亡,对世界本质的探索。一起来感受一下这场思辨的过程。

《言语的力量》这篇小说讲述了宇宙中的两个灵魂关于世界本质的对话,探讨了上帝、死亡等主题,是一篇思辨色彩很浓的小说。而这样的对话实际上也暗示着作家自己的思辨过程,是作者自己与自己的辩论。

埃德加·爱伦·坡(Edgar Allan Poe)(1809—1849),十九世纪美国诗人、小说家和文学评论家。其作品的风格在任何时代都是独一无二的。语言和形式精致、优美,内容多样。

侦探小说(detective story)鼻祖、科幻小说(science fiction)先驱之一、恐怖小说(horror fiction)大师、短篇哥特小说巅峰、象征主义(symbolism)先驱之一,唯美主义(aestheticism)者。

Edgar Allan Poe (born Edgar Poe; January 19, 1809—October 7, 1849) was an American author, poet, editor and literary critic, considered part of the American Romantic Movement. Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story and is considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre. He is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction.

请向下看那深不可测的远处——当我们的视线像这样缓缓地掠过星群——这样——像这样——请努力凝视那远处的繁星!即便是心灵的视野,不也在各个方向都被宇宙延绵不断的金墙所阻挡吗?——那些墙由无数闪闪发光的天体构成,似乎光是众多的数目就已经把它们联成一体了。

Look down into the abysmal distances!—attempt to force the gaze down the multitudinous vistas of the stars, as we sweep slowly through them thus—and thus—and thus!Even the spiritual vision, is it not at all points arrested by the continuous golden walls of the universe?—the walls of the myriads of the shining bodies that mere number has appeared to blend into unity?

爱伦·坡最大的成就是他的短篇小说,他留下的短篇传世佳作题材丰富,并且开创了许多题材。他是优秀短篇小说作家,侦探小说之父;坎坷半世,身后声名远播,想象力丰富且分析缜密;崇尚而且追随美,而美却与恐怖和诡异相伴相生。

他在《怪异故事集》序中称“自己的作品绝大部分都是深思熟虑的苦心经营”。

洛威尔一向不轻易赞扬别人,却把坡誉为“最有见识、最富哲理的大无畏评论家”。

From the Inside Flap:

Poe's best-loved tales are destined to capture the imagination of a generation new to the master of terror, as well as delight longtime admirers of Poe, who will find much to relish in this haunting interpretation."
