本の要約

"Adventures in the Alphabet" derives its inspiration from the variety and diversity of the English alphabet, in the order commonly used for teaching little children, "A is for Apple", and so on. Needless to say, there are so many possibilities implied in each letter of the alphabet, inviting the ingenuity of the author and inciting the excited response of the reader. The idea for this book arose out of a discussion in a coffee shop with a colleague of mine concerning possible books for me to write. That took place on a Thursday afternoon, and by Sunday morning I phoned my colleague to inform him that I had already completed the book by giving free rein to my "stream of consciousness" from one letter to the next, as it were in the manner of James Joyce. It may, moreover, be seen as following in the footsteps of my previous comments on "That War a Year, That Was".

著者のプロフィール

Peter Milward was born in London on October 12, 1925, and educated at Wimbledon College (a Jesuit high school). He entered the Society of Jesus in 1943, and after various studies he went on to specialize in the Classics and English at Oxford University. He came to Japan in 1954 and after further studies was ordained priest in 1960. From 1962 onwards he has taught English literature at Sophia University in Tokyo. In addition to founding the Renaissance Institute, the Hopkins Society of Japan and the Chesterton Society of Japan, he has published some 400 books, mostly as textbooks for Japanese students, many of them translated into Japanese, but now most of them out of print. Several of his books, especially those on the drama of Shakespeare and the poetry of Hopkins, have been published in England and America. Even in retirement he is still teaching and writing, as he enters his 88th year (or beiju).
