『悼む人』(天童荒太)

A
Aa
 早く読みたいと思っていた『悼む人』をようやく読むことができた。
 2009年の直木賞受賞作でありながら、文庫になるまで手が出せなかった。
 ハードカバーの厚みと、聞いていたあらすじから、相当な覚悟を持たないと読めないかなと思っていたからだ。

 1年ほど前に重松清の『カシオペアの丘』を読み、壮絶なガン患者の最後に胸を締め付けられた。
 自分の余命というものも漠然とながら考えた。
 数日前の伊坂幸太郎の「SOSの猿」を読み、メサイアコンプレックスと呼ばれる他人の不幸を放置しておけない
主人公のピュアな心に打たれた。その時、次は『悼む人』を読まねばという気になった。死者がいると聞くとほかっておけないというこの小説の主人公のことだけは知っていたからだ。

 重いテーマであったが、非常に興味深く、ほぼイッキ読みできた。
 『カシオペアの丘に』にも通じ「SOSの猿』にも通じていた。
 「死者を悼む」という行為に没頭するようになった主人公の心は、『永遠の仔』のトラウマ体験に近いものがあった。

 結末は「感動』という言葉で簡単に表現できるものではない。
 母親と主人公は会えずじまいだった。
 主人公と恋人は別の道を歩み出した。
 蒔野という男がどうなったのかが書かれていない。

 奇異な主人公の「悼む」という行為に、母も恋人も蒔野も感化されていく。
 それは読者が主人公の「悼む」という行為に感化されていく仕掛けにもなっている。

 http://bunshun.jp/itamuhito/
に作者の思いが詳細に掲載されている。
 9,11のテロが「悼む人」執筆の1つの契機になったと述べている。
 今の自分は「東日本大震災」を悼ませていただきたいと重ねて読んだ。
 しかし「大震災」の死者だけを特別に記憶にとどめ、そうでない死者は気にとめないというには主人公の生き方とは反している。
 残念ながらどんな死に方をした人にも等しく関心を注ぐことは極めて困難である。
 すべての死者を把握し悼み続け、記憶続けることも極めて困難である。
 それがいかに困難なことかを主人公=作者は訴えているのだとも言える。

 せめて「悼む」という言葉、「悼む」という行為を記憶にとどめ、自分のできる範囲で悼ませていただきたい。

His objective is nnot to gett rich, but to get this technology ouut too the world when the technology is ready to go. This information should still be considered a rumor at this point until an official announcement is made by Bethesda but there is also some potentially spoiler-heavy marerial below. Secondly, a phishing website that collects information would probably not need to bait the user into clicking it if tthe accouunt could already be taken so easily.
