"Blue bird" loved by boys and girls all over the world is a dreamlike play with a child as the main character.

The author, Mr. Leter, was deeply influenced by symbolism, which is a remarkable movement of French literature at the end of the 19th century. This work, which regards blue birds as a symbol of human happiness, can also be said to be a dark symbolicistic work of extremely mystical color.

For example, a magical diamond on a chilchil's hat symbolizes the power to make it possible to see all the essence of things, that is, it represents human wisdom, and the light that became the power of Tirchir's something somewhere during the trip It is thought that it represents the most important thing to human life. Also, in the original, besides tirutil and Michir, animals of dogs and cats, brains, sugar and water etc are participating in the journey. And although light and dogs are on the side of the Chilchils, the cat interferes between them. That is because nature animals and things do not make it as human beings do because they still have a spirit that human beings do not know. It is based on the idea that if you find a blue bird, you will know everything "to prevent it". They go to "The Palace of the Night", but in the evening it means that they keep all the secrets of nature. Chilchil and Michir can not catch the blue birds but finish the journey, but Chilchil wakes up in the morning, I notice that I should give my own pigeon to a sick girl. And when I looked at the bird cage the dove looked blue.

Although this work concluded with such a tie is thoughtfully talked about what is the true happiness of human beings, emphasis is placed on where happiness is found in compassion for ill girls It is. Through this work, Mr. Maetelink says that the happiness of man is not outside but is in their home wrapped in the mother's deep love, and happiness is determined by the viewpoint of one's own things It is taught that it is.

First of all I have to comment, but the original work by M莨〓erlink - "Blue Bird" is not a fairy tale (even more novel).
It is written and played as a drama played on stage for adults.
If you read the original text, the details of the designation and the way of expression are obviously an adult
(And also directors and actors) were targeted.
Elegant phrases that children can not understand at all, and expressions imaginative to the reader, are cynical expressions that are prime of tenko.
Due to the allergy to fantasy techniques in Japan,
I am adapting and introducing it for children as a fairy tale, I think that it is a very unfair and unfortunate ending.
In many cases that the part considered by the translator or the editor is cut as "not suitable for children", but it is not a story for children at first
(There are many such examples in so-called "masterpiece literature", so if you like print, always think you should read everything in various versions and translations without eating it).
Specifically, Chilchil, Michir brothers and sister's already broke sisters who had already died, the headache with wealthy family, the "price" of the journey to find blue birds,
And at the end of the last blue birds flew away from the front of the two again,
The end that it ends closing the curtain with Chilchil 's painful appeal ...
Even in my childhood days when I read "Fairy Tales Edition", I felt a sense of incongruity and sadness underlying discomfort as "This story is somewhat different from an ordinary fairy tale", but then I read the original text and gained a lot of excitement It depends.

[good point]
A profound and heavy theme suitable for drama for adults. The theme of the first work of this work is generally understood, "Well-being is something" or no mistake,
It is far from happy end? What is the real ending, what in the question of the last?
It is a work that can perform various reading and interpretation.
Although details will be described later, the view of the world considered in this work is fairly special considering that the announcement year and the author are Westerners. There is a feeling similar to Toyo thought and Zen, and there is also a Nobel literary award winning stamina.

[Bad point]
I personally have little.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
"very good". The reason why I intended to write this review now is that I just read Hiroyuki Itogi's "New Happiness Theory". Among them, Oshii of the original "Blue Bird" and his consideration (personally, its conclusion is subtle) is told, "I thought so - it was so misunderstood that blue birds".
The author's maeter link has a seniority, after receiving the Nobel Prize for literature after this work, when he reads a detailed depiction of the original drama, he feels the planning power and unparalleled philosophy.
Fellows of a journey different from human supremacy, which changes to another world (originally the same world) by the power of diamonds, the spirit of sugar gives their fingers to their brothers, the transience of happiness symbolized by blue birds,
The depiction of the world transformation, the self-sacrifice, and the depiction of the rich decline due to the compound eyes such as the complex eyes like the philosophical world view greatly differ from the Oriental, Buddhist view of the world.
There are various perspectives in the world, so I can not say that my interpretation is correct,
Various messages of this work "I can not make myself happy by taking the happiness of others"
"(The joy of mother's love) The wonderfulness of agape" "Human who can not notice his happiness"
And a message to the crowd showing the end, from the blue birds of their house could heal the sick daughter, but the blue bird escaped, from Chilchil's appeal urging the audience to activate,
It is the idea that the moment which is also happy is the culmination, which also leads to the concept of Zen's understanding, its culm is its culm, it will be leaving in the next moment "," real happiness will come by caring for others, not oneself " I will.
It is a story that appeals closely to Agapee like maternal love or neighbor love, and while the author is a human in Western Christian culture area, it is far from Christian dogmatism,
This work which develops without being intrusive is really unique and very unique in a good sense.
In my opinion, the final Chilchil's appeal is not a simple bad-end, but by the audience thinking "Why the blue birds have gone away", "Next is their turn to find happiness for someone" It is a thing to lead to a conclusion and I believe that as long as you pursue it in terms of "your own happiness", true happiness will never come.
Well - it is hard to write commentary, but I write these contents directly without any doubt
Compared to some fairy tales and allegory writers (I do not like them) We are left to the readers' insight and consideration, audience, that they are readers, watching opponents downwards that children receive only simple messages) There is amazing thing about the breadth and the human trust of the M莨〓erlink.

Originally nine brothers and sisters, Tirchill and Michir were surprised to see that the bottom 7 people died for the poverty, but because of their poorness they are "happy" (= blue bird) I naturally think that it was natural to decide to go looking for two people.

And while searching for blue birds, "Happiness" in "Happiness Garden" talks to Chilchil, "Humans do not notice it, though there are lots of happiness in the house" The fact that the pheasant turtle that was in the "blue bird" is to the reader (we) told the reader (we) that saying that there is true happiness (= blue bird) in daily life without casualness I think that. I think whether it is a work that will reconfirm something like "happiness".

Actually I was near by when I thought that there were no blue birds that I had sought so much ...
While the story for children, the theme is meaningful, there are things that can be thought even now.
Happiness is not something to pursue but it seems to be thought that it is what we invite by themselves,
It seems likely that a gentle mind thinking of Chilchil and Michir's mother turned out to be a blue bird and appeared at their home.

They are looking for blue birds around many countries, but the countries are also unique and pleasant.
The country like the old royal family where men living only to eat and sleep are impressive.
Even though it seems to be fun at first glance, it is not true happiness that it is falling down.
It is impressive to say that the atmosphere of fancy of kindness is similar to everyone's mother.

It is a very well-known fairy tale in Japan too. Chilchil, Michir's brothers and sisters looking for a blue bird that calls for happiness go on adventurous journeys and experience various mysterious experiences, but the essential blue birds can not be obtained ... it is roughly the story to say I let it flow.

However, it is rather hard for a child born to have sickness or take sin if there is no "talent" to bring to the world anything. Then I was born in this world with sickness and sin (sweat).

Then, my brother and sister who finally returned home, I heard that there are blue birds in my house. In short, is it meant that happiness is somewhere in the vicinity?

A blue bird is a famous car of Nissan ... aside from a joke, it is characterized by a rather heavy theme that is lessonfully included.
Blue birds also appeared in animation, but that was also a pretty lessonfully learned part, depicting the part that happiness will not come eventually even if Chilchil Michil chase the blue birds blindly.

Happiness close to us, and the happiness will not come even if we jump out of the happiness without getting caught out, the theme of being happy is a lessonful thing, and in the old tale of the majority it ends with the development that it finally comes back to our house doing.
Perhaps the place where humans should return last sees the theme of hometown as well.

By the way, really blue wild birds such as Aurori and Corri are migratory birds, they come to Japan in the summer and in the winter they move to the warm south country. Considering such an ecological aspect, I think that "Do not look like it unexpectedly." Despite coincidence, it was a case similar to the blue bird of the story.

However, even if you consider the part about what happens when the house goes home, it makes me think quite a bit.

When I was an elementary school student I read it in the library at a lossless time as it happened to be reading time.
Indeed, it seems that Chilchil and Michir go on a journey to search for blue birds rather than a novel rather than a novel, but it seems better to say a fairy tale, but it seems that they searched all the way and finally got blue birds caught but they came home I think that it is content that you can enjoy even adults by feeling lessons learned philosophy in the punch line saying that there were blue birds.

I think that evaluation is good and I would like to attach it

Although it is a fairy tales-like story for elementary school students rather than novels, I think that it is worthwhile.
Somehow my philosophical feel makes me charm.
