Göncz Árpádra emlékezünk


Életének kilencvennegyedik évében elhunyt Göncz Árpád, a huszadik század második felének jelképes alakja. Jogásznak tanult, és korán bekapcsolódott a politikai életbe; részt vett az 1956-os forradalomban, amelyért életfogytiglan börtönbüntetésre ítélték, végül öt év után szabadult, de még közel harminc évig nem folytathatott jogi és politikai tevékenységet. A rendszerváltást követően tagja lett az első országgyűlésnek, majd 1990 és 2000 között köztársasági elnök volt, akire ma úgy emlékeznek, hogy „mindenki elnöke”.

Ám nem csak Magyarország vesztett el egy meghatározó történelmi alakot, hanem az irodalmi élet is egy kiváló műfordítót. Göncz Árpád a börtönévek alatt tanult meg angolul, szabadulása után szakfordítóként kezdett dolgozni, később főállású író, műfordító lett. Többek között William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway és John Updike regényeinek fordítása fűződik a nevéhez, a legismertebb munkája mégis J. R. R. Tolkien Gyűrűk ura trilógiájának magyarra ültetése.

A nagyszabású munkáról örömmel osztott meg izgalmas részleteket, például, hogy a munka közben beleszeretett Galadrielbe. A regénysorozatot egyébként a világirodalom legnagyobb kerti törpéjének tartotta, ám később ezt a nézetét megváltoztatta. A rajongók hálája mindenesetre kitartott mellette, és élete végéig a Magyar Tolkien Társaság tiszteletbeli elnöke maradt.

Göncz Árpád a fantasy mellett a sci-fi irodalom fordításában is aktívan részt vett. A nevéhez fűződik Mary Shelley Frankenstein című regényének magyarítása, illetve Arthur C. Clarke legismertebb és legsikeresebb regényének, a 2001 Űrodüsszeiá-nak fordítása. Göncz Árpád a fordítói pályája kezdetén a politikai éra miatt nem adhatta a nevét munkáihoz, ezért azok más neve alatt jelentek meg. A szóbeszéd szerint a Marsbéli krónikák magyarra ültetése is az ő műve.

Göncz Árpád ideje lejárt, áthajózott a tengeren, ahol talán tündék és más legendás hősök várják. A szavai, a fordításai örökre itt maradnak nekünk.

Következő rendezvényén, október 14-én, szerdán a Magyar Írószövetség SF szakosztálya felidézi Göncz Árpád műfordítói munkáját. Az esemény 18 órakor kezdődik Budapest, 6. ker, Bajza u. 18. szám alatt.
