简·奥斯汀经典再翻拍,200年后《爱玛》魅力不减

Jane Austen’s Emma would be a social media influencer today

简·奥斯汀笔下的爱玛如果活在今天,会是一个社交媒体网红

Jane Austen, the Georgian era author of comic novels about love among the landed gentry only gained popularity fifty years after her own death. Her reputation skyrocketed in the 20th century as readers began to devour her timeless classics.

简·奥斯汀写过许多乡绅爱情故事,但这位乔治王时代的喜剧小说作家直到自己去世50年后才开始走红。随着20世纪的读者们开始如饥似渴地享用她那些不朽的经典,她的名气一路飙升。

Emma, one of her most celebrated novels, has seen various screen, radio, and stage iterations over the decades. This year’s cinematic release is set in Regency England – but the protagonist seems ironically relevant to today.

她最有名的小说之一《爱玛》,在过去数十年已被多次改编为影视、广播和舞台作品。今年上映的电影版本以英国摄政时期为背景,但颇为讽刺的是,主人公在今日看来却毫不违和。

Emma Woodhouse is one of Austen’s most intriguing heroines. Extrovertly self-confident, spoiled, selfish, self-assured and armed with a lacerating wit. Austen once described Emma as a character “no one but myself will much like.” It is often claimed that most people know someone like Emma.

爱玛·伍德豪斯是奥斯汀笔下最有意思的女主人公之一。外向自信,备受溺爱,自私自负,还带着一种尖酸刻薄的聪明。奥斯汀曾把爱玛描述为“只有我自己才会喜欢”的角色。人们常说,大多数人都会认识某个像爱玛一样的人。

In the latest version she’s played by Anya Taylor-Joy. “I think if Emma were alive today, she would start out as queen of social media. She’d be living her life through a filter and trying to present herself in a certain way. She’s a dictator of taste and would make a perfect social media influencer. But by the end of the story Austen wrote she’s changed so I suspect she would take a break and go travelling to try to find herself,” says Taylor-Joy.

在最新影视版本中,爱玛这个角色由安雅·泰勒-乔伊饰演。“我觉得如果爱玛今天还活着,她会成为社交媒体女王。她会活在滤镜之下,试图为自己打造特定形象。她是流行品味的主导者,会成为一个完美的社交网红。但奥斯汀在故事的结尾写道,爱玛变了,所以我猜她会休息一下,然后去旅行,试图在旅途中找到自己,”泰勒-乔伊说道。

小说爱玛百科

《爱玛》是英国作家简·奥斯汀创作的一部长篇小说。作品中主人公爱玛是个美丽、聪慧而富有的姑娘,同时也是一位不折不扣的幻想家。她热心关注身边的浪漫故事,却又固执地认为自己永远不会陷入其中。她自作主张为孤女哈丽埃特导演了一次又一次的恋爱。当哈丽埃特误以为自己爱上了地方官奈特利先生时,爱玛才惊觉原来自己也在爱着奈特利先生。这虽与她一开始就宣布的终身不嫁的誓言有悖,但坠入情网的她不得不放弃自己天真的誓言。该作品多次被搬上银幕。
