守望之心 | Go Set a Watchman (To Kill a Mockingbird #2) by Harper Lee

    守望之心 | Go Set a Watchman (To Kill a Mockingbird #2) by Harper Lee

    Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch - “Scout” - returns home to Maycomb, Alabama from New York City to visit her aging father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise’s homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town, and the people dearest to her. 

    Memories from her childhood flood back, and her values and assumptions are thrown into doubt. Featuring many of the iconic characters from To Kill a MockingbirdGo Set a Watchman perfectly captures a young woman, and a world, in painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past - a journey that can only be guided by one’s own conscience. 

    Written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of the late Harper Lee. Here is an unforgettable novel of wisdom, humanity, passion, humor, and effortless precision - a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times. 

    《守望之心》是美国传奇女作家哈珀•李有生之年出版的第二部小说。《杀死一只知更鸟》出版后的五十多年间作家一直拒绝各种采访和社会活动,并宣称不会再写第二本书。2015年,《守望之心》出版,立刻成为了当年出版界的话题,创造了销售的奇迹,日销量达10万册。据说本书源自作者早年的手稿,李本人以为这份手稿早已遗失。《守望之心》的创作年代早于《杀死一只知更鸟》,讲述的是斯库特成年以后回到家乡探亲的故事,其中穿插了很多斯库特童年的回忆。在编辑的建议下,哈珀•李以其中的童年片段为基础,耗费十几年的时间创作了《杀死一只知更鸟》。

    有人说《守望之心》是对《杀死一只知更鸟》的颠覆,然而从国外主流的评论来看,其实并不其然,阿迪克斯仍然是阿迪克斯,仍然是那个正义、理性的父亲,只是由于人与社会历史环境的复杂性,他对待不同的事情会有不同的态度。更多问题源于斯库特在成长中需要解决的问题,其中就包括了她对于父亲角色的定位。所以说,与其说这是一种颠覆,不如说是一种延续和丰满,和《杀死一只知更鸟》一样,《守望之心》也是人成长中不可缺少的一课。其中的家庭关系,人步入成年后角色转换的阵痛,现实与理想的矛盾,以及始终贯穿其中的爱,对我们每个人来说都是珍贵的成长经历。
