商品の説明

内容紹介

It is 1901, and Lucy Gayheart with her 'singular brightness of young beauty', is studying music in the magical smoky city of Chicago. She is courted by handsome Harry Gordon, the most eligible bachelor in Haverford, the Midwestern town she comes from. But Lucy falls in love with middle-aged Sebastien, a famous singer, whose talents and tenderness change her life forever. First published in 1935, this novel of 'achieved simplicity' displays the depth of Willa Cather's sympathy, both for the world of high art and for the reticent decencies of small town life.

レビュー

"The unity of Miss Cather's design, the clarity and distinction of this book, should put it beside her first great success, My Ántonia." —The Times Literary Supplement (London) --このテキストは、絶版本またはこのタイトルには設定されていない版型に関連付けられています。

19世紀から20世紀にかけて活躍したアメリカを代表する女性作家、ウィラ・キャザーの傑作のひとつ。

ネブラスカの小さな街ハヴァーシャムで育った美しく才気あふれる娘、ルーシー・ゲイハートは
音楽的才能を伸ばすため、18歳のときに父の援助を得てシカゴに赴くが、
そこで出会った世界的歌手との恋が彼女の人生を大きく変えてしまう。

アメリカの大都市と片田舎での生活をともに体験したルーシーは、
自らのルーツとやみがたい向上心との間で引き裂かれて苦悩し、
やがて抑えきれない情熱によって思わぬ運命に翻弄される。

20世紀初頭のアメリカを舞台に抒情的な文章で描き出される哀切な物語。
スモール・タウンのファム・ファタールとでも呼ぶべき
ルーシーとそれを取り巻く人びとの心理描写は細密で美しい。
ここで描かれているのはアメリカン・ドリームの儚さだろうか。
それとも失われやすい青春への挽歌だろうか。

アントニア・バイアットなどの現代作家も
この作品を高く評価しているそうだ。
フィッツジェラルドのように時代の寵児だった作家とは
一味違い、キャザーには地に足のついた強靭さを感じる。
アメリカ文学をお好きな方に広く薦めたい名作です。

5つ星のうち 5.0 LIFE DOESN'T ALWAYS GO AS PLANNED 2014/5/23
投稿者 josephine briggs - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
The book takes readers to one of Ms. Cather's favorite places in the world, Nebraska's Platte River Valley, time 1901. The story tells of two young people, Lucy Gayheart and Harry Gordon, who expect their lives to be different, then life changes for both. Lucy is eighteen, Harry eight years older, handsome, wealthy, and in love with Lucy. He wants to marry her. Lucy is a beautiful girl, filled with joy, love of life, from a poor family. The Gayhearts, Lucy, father, not ambitious, too easy going, and Pauline, the spinster sister, twelve years older than Lucy who keeps house for the family. The house is located at the edge of town.

Lucy is musically gifted, her father realizes this and sends her to a music teacher in Chicago to become more proficient in piano. Her father, also loves music, and leads the band in the small town. Music is very important in this book. Lucy falls in love with the big midwestern city, so full of life, so much to do, to see, so many places to go. But she must live frugally, her family is hard put to send her here, she feels lucky to be able to come. She is growing away from small town life. She also gives piano lessons to students to add to her income.

Professor Auerbach introduces Lucy to Clement Sebastian, a singer with a beautiful voice, who is in need of an accompanist. James Mockford, his piano player, is not well and needs to rest. Mockford is a strange men, he looks young, then older, a theatrical looking person. Lucy takes an instant dislike to him and believes the feeling is mutual.

Clement Sebastian and Lucy Gayheart become attracted to eath other. The young girl from small town midwest and the sophisticated older man, Lucy is attracted to his talent, his world wise sophistication, his travels and knowledge of great cities, countries and artistic type people. Sebastian lives in Paris, he and his wife are at odds, several friends of his youth are dead. Clement is attracted to Lucy's youth, beauty, and potential. He is 50, feels old and burned out.

The book is divided into three parts, youth, life in Chicago, is part one, Part 2, Lucy is back living in Haverford. Part 3 is the end. Professor Auerbach likes Harry and feels he's a good catch, marry him. Life as a piano accompanist isn't that secure, especially for a woman. There is nothing wrong with marriage and small town life. Lucy gets angry with Auerbach and refuses to have anything to do with him.

Harry has married a woman he doesn't love, just to spite Lucy and himself. He will hardly speak to Lucy though she would like to go back to being friends. She is very depressed and talks to good friend, Mrs Ramsey, who tells her she is too young to give up on life. Lucy decides to grab hold of life, get back into her music, move back to Chicago,start teaching piano again. She makes arrangements.

The book is complicated and goes deep into the lives of these characters. But Willa Cather always tells a good story.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Actress Joanne Woodward's all time favorite book 2016/2/28
投稿者 ChristineLavin - (Amazon.com)
Amazonで購入
This book was the #1 all time favorite book of actress Joanne Woodward (there's a NYTimes article written in 1998 that tells the story of her love for this book). She actually booked herself into Symphony Space in NYC for two nights in a row and simply read the book aloud -- and sold out both nights. It was her dream to turn it into a film, but now she is too old to tackle such a project. She made so many wonderful films during her career; I highly recommend this book so you can see why Joanne Woodward became so passionate about it. It's an excellent candidate for a Book Club read, too -- it's more a novella than a novel -- someday I hope some filmmaker WILL make this into a film.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Lucy Gayheart, (Vintage Classics) by author Willa Cather 2011/9/22
投稿者 M. Schilling - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Lucy Gayheart is a quintessentially innocent teenager who is beautiful, happy, inquisitive, and self-assured. From the small town of Haverford, i.e., Red Cloud, (Webster County)Nebraska, she travels to Chicago to study piano. Willa Cather portrays Lucy as an idealistic, lovely, talented, and charming daughter and friend who becomes confused by the extreme changes in her environment and cultural mores of a large metropolis as opposed to the simplicity of life in a rural Nebraska town in 1935. She is confronted by choices that will determine a future of introspection and sadness. I plan to discuss and review this book for my PEO chapter, and I intend to compare "Lucy Gayheart" to "My Antonia" and "One of Ours". Willa Cather is a master at searching the souls and deep aspirations of her characters. I recommend "Lucy Gayheart" for women and men of all ages who are inspired by Cather's beautiful landscapes and deep character studies. The Vintage Classic edition is an attractive high quality paperback that I purchased at Amazon.com.

5つ星のうち 5.0 I Can't Get Enough of Willa Cather 2013/11/17
投稿者 Mary C. Campbell - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
ICan't Get Enough of Willa Cather. The young Lucy Gayheart tells such a beautiful story of a young girl growing up with goals and dreams and nearly achiving them. I had high hopes for her. But what a surprise ending to the book. I have just started reading Willa Cather novels in the last month. Each one gets better than the last if I can say so myself. Beautiful writing and expression. As with the last book I read "Death Comes for the Archbishop" it can't be topped. Can't wait for "O Pioneer".
5つ星のうち 5.0 Lovely and heartbreaking 2016/9/1

I've loved this novel for many years, but had lost track of my copy. I ordered it and re-read it. It is still lovely, and still breaks my heart. This novel about a young girl who moves to Chicago to reach her artistic goals -- but suffers an unexpected fate -- is very short, but it is the best Cather novel, in my opinion.
