商品の説明

内容紹介

"A moving, powerful book that, in a career rich with distinguished works, could well be considered her masterpiece."Publishers Weekly

Hillela is Nadine Gordimer's "sport of nature": a spontaneous mutation, a new type of untainted person, she is seductive and intuitively gifted for life. A Sport of Nature is the bold, sweeping story of her rise from obscurity to an unpredictable kind of political power.

Abandoned by her mother, Hillela is left to be raised by her two aunts in South Africa. At Olga's she might have acquired a taste for antiques and a style of dress to please a suitable husband. At Pauline's she might have developed a social conscience. But Hillela's betrayal of her position as a surrogate daughter so shocks both families that at seventeen she is cast adrift.

Swiftly and perilously, her life opens out. She lives as a footloose girl among political exiles on a beach in East Africa, drifting between jobs and lovers, and finally becomes the wife of a black revolutionary. Personal tragedy is ultimately the catalyst for her political development, leading her into a heroic role in the overthrow of apartheid.

This is the largest, most reverberant work of fiction we have had yet from one of the world's master novelists.

レビュー

A powerful book ... the mature achievement [of] a fiercely intelligent writer ... grand-scale, rich and demanding New York Times Book Review Richly detailed and visionary, a brilliant reflection of a world that exists and an affirmation of faith in one that could be born Time A moving, powerful book that, in a career rich with distinguished works, could well be considered her masterpiece Publishers Weekly Gordimer writes with a relish that is sometimes wicked and an authority that seems absolute The New Yorker A valiant, beautifully rendered attempt to do justice, its heart unbowed by the enormity of its burden Boston Globe

haunting 2003/7/18
投稿者 Chutes - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
This is a richly written book. Gordimer handles the character in an interesting way--one of the reviewers said that she couldn't relate to the character, and I think that is because Gordimer is presenting her as someone who is puzzling to other people, a "sport" or new species. You don't get into the heroine's head so much as you try to figure out her mysteries. Of course, that means Gordimer is giving the reader the role of someone from the ordinary world who isn't quite as evolved sexually or politically as her heroine. I found the heroine haunting because of her self possession, her practically unselfconscious drive to grow that freed her of much of the guilt and fear of isolation that keep most of us from doing the right things.

Look beyond normal reading 2002/12/5

I do not agree with the substandard reviews of this book. If you are interested in South Africa don't be afraid of a more difficult read and pick up this book. It is a little difficult to get into but once you get used to Gordimer's writing style, anyone will enjoy it. Hillela is a very interesting character who one can not underestimate. I like her spirit, and I truely think she has a complete change of character by the end of the story.

Absorbing, but just couldn't relate to main character 2000/6/11
投稿者 Maureen - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
I have never read Nadine Gordimer before, but when I saw 2 collections of her works at 2 of my friends' houses (and rave reviews) I got curious. This book is a thickly textured look at 3 sisters and their divurgent lives and the daughter of 1 who is exposed to all 3 and then further divurges into the racial movements of 70's South Africa. Gordimer's use of setting is really good. I found particularly interesting the family of the most politically oriented sister, Pauline and her husband Joe and children where the domestic lives interleave with the sometimes violent politial terrain. The main character, Hillela, however, I found to be less than heroic -- she simply seemed to be a sensual being who floated in and out of various beds and even the tragedy which befalls her later in the story doesn't REALLY seem to have changed her - she seems like the same person on page 1 as on page 300, although the narrative implies otherwise. For a book released in the 70's I'm sure that this was a revelation, although here in the new millenium it seems dated.Despite all this, I think the author is terrifically talented in her ability to convey sensuality, to provoke thought, and to establish setting and mood. There were some passages of the book that are among the best I've read anywhere.

Like Life 2011/11/18
投稿者 J. Smallridge - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
This book, to me, captures what a life in exile must feel like: complete disassociation. Not only does the main character experience physical exile throughout many parts of this work, she also experiences emotional exile almost from the very beginning of her life. A main reason for the disassociation -- and why the exile continues over a long time -- is because the protagonist allows events to happen to her rather than take any concrete action. The character's experiences then make for a strange work for a reader. Thus, I'm not surprised that this book has so many varied responses. It is a challenging read with parts of pure beauty, almost a reflection on life itself.

what happened to Carole? 2004/8/26
投稿者 madeline moore - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
I have nothing negative to say about this work of Nadine Gordimer whom I continue to regard as one of the top lliving writers. I've read every novel she's written and will get on to her short stories soon. I'm a little late getting to "A Sport of Nature" and just finished it. BRAVO. Except, we don't find out what happens to Carole. Big no-no. She can certainly be considered a main character. She had her own personality and confusion. I would like to have had Gordimer at least offer a small glimpse of Carole in her adult life.
