本の要約

"Fortunate Failures" is a kind of autobiography, with a paradoxical and alliterative emphasis on the good fortune brought to me by means of various failures, according to the Japanese sayings, "Shippai wa seiko no moto" (Failure is the beginning of success) and "Makeru ga kachi" (Losing is winning). Such have been various incidents in childhood, in boyhood during the war, in studies as a young Jesuit, in my journey to Japan, in my varied experiences as professor of Sophia University in Japan, and in the various tours I have arranged for my Japanese students in the British Isles, in Europe, and in the Holy Land.

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).
