Elena Ferrante / Penguin Group USA / 2012년 9월
평점 :

내가 그렇게 실험하고 적용하고 재미붙였을 때는 아무 일 없더니만 이런 이벤트가 있어, 추첨 100명이라는데 혹시나 하고 응모해 본다.

2018년 올해의 문장은 <문맹>의 이 문장이다.

“나는 읽는다. 이것은 질병과도 같다. ...”

책이 없는 관계로 올해의 책 중의 하나인 엘레나 페란테 1권으로 갈음한다.


But whenhe went out to sea I didn‘t feel able to follow, I returned to the shoreline to watch apprehensively the wake he left, the darkspeck of his head. I became anxious if I lost him, I was happy when I saw him return. In other words I loved him and knew it and was content to love him. 220

On some cold mornings, when I rose at dawn and in the kitchen went over the lessons, I had the impression that, as usual, I was sacrificing the warm deep sleep of the morning to make a good impression on the daughter of the shoemaker rather than onthe teachers in the school for rich people. Breakfast was hurried, too, for her sake. I gulped down milk and coffee and ranout to the street so as not to miss even a step of the way we would go together. 156

She also asked me about the Aeneid, she was crazy about it. She had read it all in a few days, while I, in school, was in the middle of the second book. She talked ingreat detail about Dido, a figure I knew nothing about, I heard that name for the first time not at school but from her. 160

Tall, thin, in a blue shirt, dark pants, and sandals, with a bag over his shoulder, he showed not the least emotion at finding me in Ischia, in that house, so I thought that in Naples they must have a telephone, that Marisa had found a way of warning him. 216

... he seemed content with my presence only if I was silently listening, which I quickly resigned myself to doing. Besides, he said things that I could never have thought, or at least said, with the same assurance, and he said them in a strong, engaging Italian. 217

저도 다섯 개 뭘할까?막 고민하다가 그냥 또 그렇게 까먹었네요!!
책 읽을때 줄긋기나 메모를 하지 않는 편이라 시간이 지나 책을 덮고 나면 아무런 기억이????!!!!!ㅋㅋ
그래서 늘, 메모하면서 정독하시는 분들 보면 부러워요^^
