書名:吃夢獸:葉石濤的故事

葉石濤(1925.11.01-2008.12.11),道道地地的「臺南人」,也被譽為「臺灣文學領航者」。

葉石濤是戰後臺灣文學最重要的文學評論家,他的《臺灣文學史綱》是戰後第一本臺灣文學史著作,更是臺灣人自己撰寫的第一部臺灣文學史,因此葉石濤被稱為臺灣文學研究的奠基者。除了文學評論之外,葉石濤更書寫小說和散文;小說作品《葫蘆巷春夢》曾被改編為電影。

他常用「當作家是受到天譴的工作」來形容自己,卻在寫作生涯裡寫了八百餘萬字。他說作家是一隻吃夢維生的獸,而這隻吃夢獸,其實就是代表著葉石濤的文學和寫作夢,甚至是葉石濤本身的「文學魂」,更是葉石濤自己。

It was the book on the history of Taiwan literature by a true Taiwanese. Because of this contribution, he was considered the founder of the study of Taiwan literature. Other than literature critic reviews, he was also a write on novels and prose. His novel, Spring Dreams in HuLu (a kind of gourd) Alley was made into a movie.
 
He often used the saying, "To be a writer is punishment from Heaven" to describe himself. However, during his career in writing, he wrote more than 8 million words. He said writers are a kind of animals which sustain their lives by eating dreams.
