内容简介

The Sot-Weed Factor is a 1960 novel by John Barth that satirizes picaresque novels such as Tristram Shandy and Tom Jones. ("Sot-weed" is an old term for the tobacco plant. A "factor" is a middleman who buys something to resell it.) TIME included the novel in its TIME 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005.

The novel takes its title from a poem of the same name published in London in 1708 and signed Ebenezer Cooke. As Barth explained:

The Sot–Weed Factor began with the title and, of course, Ebenezer Cooke's original poem. . . . Nobody knows where the real chap is buried; I made up a grave for Ebenezer because I wanted to write his epitaph.

Barth also made extensive use of the few pieces of information known at the time about the historical Cooke, his assumed father and grandfather, both called Andrew Cooke, and his sister, Anna.

1960 年发表的《烟草经纪人》是巴思的成名作,也是"黑色幽默"派的 代表作品之一.从它开始,巴思逐渐形成了自己独特的风格。晦涩、滑稽、创意无限。这本讽刺小说也是对成长过程中潜藏的危险的真实写照。本书讲述的是17世纪晚期的事,埃比尼泽库克是一个诗人,一个孝顺的儿子,一个意志坚定的懵懂少男,从英格兰飘洋过海来到马里兰州接管父亲的烟草种植园。从此,他遇到了许多怪事,遭遇了许多危险。

《烟草经纪人》不仅是一部关于小说的小说,还是一部关于历史学的小说。
