近日,J·K·罗琳(JK Rowling)在接受BBC艺术主编威尔·冈珀茨(Will Gompertz)关于其新作《临时空缺》的访谈时表示,如果想到绝妙的点子,才有可能续写哈利·波特的故事。她个人十分反感出前传和写续集的做法,不想在没有好的灵感前提下就随便拼凑哈利·波特故事以赚大钱。


  近日,J·K·罗琳(JK Rowling)在接受BBC艺术主编威尔·冈珀茨(Will Gompertz)关于其新作《临时空缺》的访谈时表示,如果想到绝妙的点子,才有可能续写哈利·波特的故事。她个人十分反感出前传和写续集的做法,不想在没有好的灵感前提下就随便拼凑哈利·波特故事以赚大钱。

  以下为J·K·罗琳采访中提及关于《哈利·波特》创作的节选的中英对照版本(中文翻译来自新浪读书):

  Will Gompertz: It seems incredible to me that as a writer you''ve created a portfolio of characters which connect with millions, maybe even billions of people. And those characters have got plenty more story in them. Surely to goodness, as a writer, you can''t leave them be。

  JK Rowling: It was murder saying goodbye. But truly, where Harry''s story is concerned, I''m done. I just think it would be for the sake of milking it and that''s just not in me。

  Clearly there was an appetite for eight, nine, ten, and I could have done it. I know that world so well that moving in and out of it is like walking through my own front door. But I had enough plot for seven novels, and to go further would have been money for old rope. Couldn''t do it. And that''s largely why I slapped on that epilogue. Because the epilogue says he''s leading a quiet life, and he''s earned it. He''s done。

  Now, having said all of that, I have always left the door ajar because I''m not that cruel. If I had a fabulous idea that came out of that world, because I loved writing it, I would do it. But I''ve got to have a great idea, I don''t want to go mechanically into that world and pick up odds and ends and glue them together and say "here we go, we can sell this". It would make a mockery of what those books were to me. They really kept me going through some very rough times... So I just don''t want to betray them in that sense。

  But you''re right, you know what, if I did have a great idea for something else, I probably would do it. I''m very averse to the prequel / sequel idea. I''ve never seen it work well in either literature or film. That''s a personal preference。

  Will Gompertz: When were you in that position?

  JK Rowling: There were a couple of the Potters and I definitely knew that they needed another year. There''s one towards the beginning and there''s one towards the end, that I definitely felt that about. I had to write on the run and there were times when it was really tough. And I read them, and I think "Oh God, maybe I''ll go back and do a director''s cut". I don''t know。

  But you know what? I''m proud I was writing under the conditions under which I was writing. No one will ever know how tough it was at times。

  威尔·冈珀茨:在我看来不可思议的是,作为一个作家,你创作了一组影响千万人的人物。那些人物自身还有不少丰富的故事。作为一个作家,出于善意,你不能对他们置之不理。

  J·K·罗琳:(和哈利·波特故事)说再见非常残忍。但是说真的,哈利·波特的故事,我已经完成了。如再写下去,只会像挤牛奶一样挤内容,而这不是我想要的。

  确实有写第八部、第九部、第十部的欲望存在,我本也可这样做。我太熟悉那个世界了,进出那个世界就好像我从自家前门出入一样容易。但我已为之前的七部小说安排了足够的情节,再写下去就是顺老藤赚大钱了。我不能这样做。这很大程度上就是为何我利落地收尾了。尾声中说他过上了平静的生活,他也值得过这样一份生活。他的故事结束了。

  现在,说了这么多,我也一直给哈利·波特的故事留着门在,因为我不想那么残忍。如果我有绝妙的点子从那个世界蹦出来——因为我也喜欢写它,我会继续写下去的。但我必须有很棒的点子,我不想机械地进入哈利·波特的世界,捡些七零八碎的东西一拼凑,然后说“好了,我们开卖吧”。这将是对我之前几部书的一种蔑视。它们确实支撑我度过了一段艰难的时期。所以在这个意义上,我不想背叛它们。

  但你说得没错,你知道吗,如果我真的有了好想法,我可能会写下去。我非常反感出前传和续集的做法,我还从没见哪部文学或影视作品弄出过好的前传或续集来。这只是我个人的偏好。

  威尔·冈珀茨:你是什么时候感到自己需要对作品进行“重新加工一下”的?

  J·K·罗琳:有两本《哈利·波特》我明确知道还需要一年的时间完善打磨。一是开头那本,一是结尾那本,我明确感到应该这样做。那时我必须赶着写,那真是一段艰难的时期。当我读着它们,我觉得“天呐,也许我该穿越回去做个导演剪辑版出来。”我不知道。

  但是你知道吗?我非常自豪自己在那样的条件下还能写作。没有人知道那曾是一段多么艰辛的时光。
