Rōmaji Nikki (1909) is the most widely known diary of Ishikawa Takuboku – particularly for its experimental orthography, being completely written in roman letters (rōmaji). The author explains his phonocentric writing as a device to preserve the secrecy of his script. Indeed, Rōmaji Nikki describes his most intimate thoughts and episodes, including the striking descriptions of his sexual experiences. Besides the questionable authenticity of the premise of secrecy, in the romanization of the Japanese language we should seek other meanings strictly tied to the description of his inner world and his literary experimentation. This paper examines the way in which the Rōmaji Nikki uses structural features (such as narrative elements) and phonocentrism in connection with the representation of Self, aiming to identify how all these elements contribute to the psychological complexity of Takuboku’s Self-representation.

Abstract

石川啄木の『ローマ字日記』は、アルファベットで表記されているとい う点で、彼の日記の中で最も広く知られたものである。啄木自身は、 日記の秘密性を守るためにローマ字表記を採用したと述べており、確 かにこの日記においては性描写も含めて、彼の体験や思いが赤裸々に 記録されている。しかしローマ字を用いた理由の真偽は別として、啄 木が選んだローマ字表記に、彼の内面世界および文学的な実験に密接 にかかわる、さらに広い意味を求めるべきであろう。本稿では、この 日記における物語性および音声中心表記などの構造的な特徴と啄木の 自己像に注目しながら、これらの要素が『ローマ字日記』に表れる作 者の深い心理描写といかに関わっているかを論じる。

Rōmaji Nikki (1909) is the most widely known diary of Ishikawa Takuboku – particularly for its experimental orthography, being completely written in roman letters (rōmaji). The author explains his phonocentric writing as a device to preserve the secrecy of his script. Indeed, Rōmaji Nikki describes his most intimate thoughts and episodes, including the striking descriptions of his sexual experiences. Besides the questionable authenticity of the premise of secrecy, in the romanization of the Japanese language we should seek other meanings strictly tied to the description of his inner world and his literary experimentation. This paper examines the way in which the Rōmaji Nikki uses structural features (such as narrative elements) and phonocentrism in connection with the representation of Self, aiming to identify how all these elements contribute to the psychological complexity of Takuboku’s Self-representation.
