ALEMANYA (II) – CURIOSITATS

Robinson Crusoe

Robinson Crusoe

Del viatge a Alemanya aniré contant anècdotes i curiositats. La primera que et conte és sobre Robinson Crusoe. Anna ens va contar que pel que sembla, el pare de Robinson Crusoe era de Bremen. Ens digué que ho conta a  l’inici del conte i ens ho ha fet arribar: I was born in the year 1632, in the city of York, of a good family, though not of that country, my father being a foreigner of Bremen, who settled first at Hull. He got a good estate by merchandise, and leaving off his trade, lived afterwards at York, from whence he had married my mother, whose relations were named Robinson, a very good family in that country, and from whom I was called Robinson Kreutznaer; but, by the usual corruption of words in England, we are now called – nay we call ourselves and write our name – Crusoe; and so my companions always called me.

Molts pobles no tenen la sort de ser nombrats en histories tan conegudes com aquesta. Bremen sí.
