前言
最早接触牛津大学出版社的文学工具书是在20世纪80年代初。记得在美国读学位的第一学年(1981-1982)上了一门文学专业研究生的必修课:Bibliography and Literary Research。几乎所有美国大学的英文系都把这门课列为硕士研究生的必修课(我就读的那所大学英文系有3门硕士生必修课,另外两门是“乔叟”和“莎士比亚”)。如果直译,课程的题目应该被称为“目录学和文学研究”。其实,那实际上是一门方法论的课程。而从内容来看,课程的宗旨就是教会学生如何使用图书馆的工具书。给我们上课的是一位资历颇深的老教授。记得有两次课是在大学图书馆上的,停留时间最长的是图书馆的工具书库,由他在现场为我们逐一介绍不同工具书的类别、用途和特点。有趣的是,这门课的期末考试也是在图书馆进行的:每个学生用抽签的形式拿到一份“任务书”,上面有10个小问题,要求我们在3个小时内从图书馆查找到这些问题的答案。美国大学的图书馆是我在美国读书五年半后觉得最值得留恋的地方。虽然,中国的许多大学近年来盖了不少非常漂亮、甚至堪称奢华的图书馆,但是,似乎没有一家中国大学的图书馆在实际的馆藏上能与美国大学图书馆相比,特别是在工具书方面,因为原文工具书普遍价格较高,许多中国大学图书馆缺乏这方面的资金。正是在这门课上我第一次使用了牛津大学出版社的文学工具书,The Oxford Companion to English Literature(《牛津英国文学词典》)。记得期末“任务书”中的一道题“yahoo'’也是从这本工具书中找到了答案。当时大学图书馆收藏的是1967年出版的(第4版),我1986年底回国时,带了一本从旧书店淘来的《牛津英国文学词典》,一直珍藏在手边随时翻阅,觉得非常方便和实用。直到几年前才从亚马逊购书网上订了一本2000年推出的《牛津英国文学词典》(第6版)。这也许就是我与牛津大学出版社文学工具书结缘的开始吧。1998年我去美国克利弗兰市参加美国莎士比亚学会第26届年会。因为会上有一个名为“莎士比亚在中国”的小型讨论会,我应邀担任这一专题讨论会的评论员。共有来自世界各地的8位学者提交了论文,所有对这一议题感兴趣的人都在会前通过互联网阅读了这些文章。讨论会上首先由我对8篇文章逐一做了点评,然后就是与会者与文章的作者自由交换意见。讨论会结束后,一位坐在后排的中年学者走了过来,他自我介绍说他叫麦克·道布森(Michael Dobson),是正在编写中的《牛津莎士比亚词典》(The Oxford Companion to Shakespeare)的主编,他问我是否有兴趣参加他的编写团队。就这样,我成了2001年出版的《牛津莎士比亚词典》的编撰者之一。2006年由牛津大学出版社推出的5卷本《牛津英国文学百科全书》虽然也属于牛津大学出版社的文学工具书系列,但是,与词典系列丛书(companion)相比,它有着两个明显的特点:1.信息量大。与词典系列丛书相比,《牛津英国文学百科全书》收入的词条数量不大,但是,每个词条下的内容非常丰富。以A为例:《牛津英国文学词典》收入了455个词条,共55页。
内容概要

章节摘录
插图:POETRY,
POLITICS,
FRIENDSHIP,AND
THE
NEOCLASSICAL
IDEALAlthough
the
Spectator
overshadows
his
other
writing,
in
the
eighteenth
century
Addison
had
a
significant
role
as
a
literary
critic
who
focused
contemporary
attention
on
the
importance
of
style.
In
his
time
he
was
considered
an
influential,
if
minor,
poet
and
an
impressive
classical
scholar.
These
talents,
in
combination
with
his
literary
posture
of
objective
perspective
and
balanced
judgment,
manifested
in
learning
lightly
worn,
helped
to
define
the
social
and
literary
ideal
of
neoclassicism.
Early
in
his
life
he
was
renowned
for
his
Latin
verses,
which
won
him
the
attention
of
Dr.
William
Lancaster,
a
fellow
(and
soon
to
be
provost)
of
his
Oxford
College,
Queen's.
He
rapidly
obtained
a
demyship
(scholarship)
at
Magdalen
College,
which
led
to
a
fellowship
that
he
held
from
1698
until
1711.
These,
and
his
continual
Latin
compositions,
stamped
him
as
a
literary
professional,
but
his
social
skills
also
deeply
shaped
his
success.He
first
won
public
attention
with
his
poem
"To
Mr.
Dryden"
(1693),
a
panegyric
on
the
poet's
classical
translations
that
appeared
in
the
important
Examen
Poeticum,
which
was
itself
edited
by
the
sometime
poet
laureate,
John
Dryden.
The
third
of
a
multivolume
series
of
poetical
miscellanies,
this
collection
established
the
taste
for
heterogeneous,
light
verse
that
shaped
taste
for
the
next
half
century.
It
was
a
coup
for
Addison
to
publish
in
such
a
collection,
but
the
conglomeration
of
ballads,
prologues,
satire,
translations,
and
light
verse
in
these
volumes
also
made
them
an
apt
venue
for
Addison's
poetry.
His
poems
characteristically
elide
genres,
merging
panegyric
with
description,
and
wit
with
reverence
while
addressing
a
diverse
range
of
subjects.
He
wrote
not
only
on
politics
and
divinity,
but
also
penned
verses
on
a
barometer,
a
puppet-show,
and
a
mock-heroic
battle
between
pygmies
and
cranes.
Four
more
of
his
poems,
all
infusing
classical
forms
with
conversational
lightness,
appeared
in
subsequent
volumes
of
Tonson's
Miscellany
Poems,
including
"An
Account
of
the
Greatest
English
Poets"
and
"Poem
to
His
Majesty."
This
blend
of
tact,
politics,
and
classical
learning
characterized
the
literary
man
of
the
time,
but
Addison's
contribution
was
greater.
His
concern
for
stylistic
questions,
manifested
in
his
translations
as
well
as
his
essays,
helped
to
make
aesthetic
technique
a
central
criterion
for
literary
evaluation.In
his
prose
works,
too,
Addison
had
an
important
talent
for
showing
how
immersion
in
classical
culture
could
enrich
the
perception
of
contemporary
life,
even
as
he
also
saw
all
culture
and
history
in
a
political
light.
While
traveling
on
the
Continent
from
1699
to
1703
with
the
aid
of
a
government
grant,
he
published
the
verse
Letter
from
Italy,
and
probably
composed
Dialogues
upon
the
Usefulness
of
Ancient
Metals,
published
posthumously.
Fusing
history,
politics,
and
social
observation,
Addison's
popular
travelogue
exemplified
intellectual
reflection
and
an
enthusiastic
sense
of
the
power
of
learning
to
elucidate
experience,
features
that
also
appear
in
his
discussion
of
medals
as
illustrated
by
Latin
verse.
His
comments
on
Italy,
nonetheless,
are
saturated
with
his
advocacy
of
progress,
republicanism,
and
trade.
This
ability
to
infuse
political
perception
into
entertaining
literary
fare
was
pre-
cious
in
the
early
eighteenth
century.
Upon
his
return
in
1703,
Addison's
political
cronies
urged
him
to
compose
a
celebration
of
Marlborough's
victory
at
Blenheim.
The
resuit,
The
Campaign,
written
in
heroic
couplets,
and
published
in
December
1704,
was
so
successful
that
Tonson
immediately
published
Addison's
Remarks
on
Several
Parts
of
Italy,
which
itself
quadrupled
in
price
before
the
second
edition
of
1718.
In
The
Campaign,
Addison
heroicizes
Marlborough
while
retaining
a
good
portrait
of
his
real
character.
The
poem
is
also
an
accurate
narrative
of
the
battle.
Like
the
Spectator,
this
blend
of
fact
and
fiction
demonstrated
the
emerging
technique
of
literary
realism.
