英語 日本語訳


The sixth planet was a planet

that was ten times bigger.

It was inhabited by an elderly man,

who wrote large books.

“Oh, look!

Here is an explorer!”

the man exclaimed,

when he saw the little prince.

The little prince sat down at the table.

10 He was tired.

He had been travelling

such a long way by now!

“Where did you come from?”

asked the elderly man.

“What is that large book?”

said the little prince.

“What do you do here?”

“I am a geographer,”

said the elderly man.

20 “What’s a geographer?”

asked the little prince.

“A geographer is a scholar

who knows

where all the seas, rivers,

towns, mountains

and deserts are found.

“That is very interesting,”

said the little prince.

“That’s a real job.”

30 And he glanced all around him

at the geographer’s planet.

He had never seen such a large and beautiful planet.

“Your planet is very beautiful,”

said the little prince.

“Does it have many oceans?”

“I don’t know, ”

said the geographer.

“Oh!

(The little prince was disappointed.)

40 And are there mountains?”

“I wouldn’t know,”

said the geographer.

“And cities, and rivers, and deserts?”

“I don’t know that, either,”

said the geographer.

“But you’re a geographer!”

“That’s right,”

the geographer said.

“But I’m not an explorer.

50 There are no explorers here.

Geographers don’t go out

and look for the towns, the rivers,

the seas, the oceans, or the deserts.

Geographers are much too important

to waste time wandering about like that.

They never leave the desk.

But he interviews the explorers.

He asks them questions,

and writes down

60 what they have seen.

And, if one of them remembers something

that seems interesting,

the geographer must find out

whether the explorer is moral character or not.

“Why do they do that?”

“Because an untruthful explorer would create terrible problems

for the geography books.

So would an explorer who drank too much.”

“Why?”

70 asked the little prince.

“Because people who are drunk see double.

And then the geographer would note down two mountains

where there is only one.”

“I know someone

who would make a bad explorer,”

said the little prince.

“That is possible.

So, once the explorer’s moral character seems fine,

we must study his discovery.”

80 “Do you go and look at it?”

“No. That would be too difficult.

But we require the explorer to supply proofs.

For instance,

if the explorer has discovered a large mountain,

he’s expected to bring back large rocks from it.”

The geographer suddenly became very excited.

“But you, you’ve come from far away!

You’re an explorer!

You can describe your planet to me!”

90 And the geographer opened his large book

and sharpened his pencil.

Explorers’ details were always noted down first in pencil.

Proofs had to be supplied

before they could be written down in ink.”

“Well?”

said the geographer.

“Oh!”

said the little prince.

“My planet is not very interesting.

100 I have three volcanoes.

Two are active volcanoes,

and one is extinct one.

But you never know.”

“You never know,”

agreed the geographer.

“I have a flower, too.”

“We don’t write about flowers,”

said the geographer.

“Why not?

110 They are the prettiest thing of all.”

“Because flowers are ephemeral.”

“What does ‘ephemeral’ mean?”

“Geography books,”

explained the geographer,

“are the most profound books of all.

They never go out of date.

It’s very unusual for a mountain to move around.

It is very unusual for an ocean to become dry.

We write about things that never change. ”

120 “But extinct volcanoes could wake up again,

the little prince said.

“What do you mean by ‘ephemeral’?”

“Whether the volcanoes are extinct or active,

for us it comes to the same thing,”

said the geographer.

“All that matters to us is that they are mountains.

That never changes.”

“But what do you mean by ‘ephemeral’?”

the little prince repeated,

130 who never stopped asking a question

once he had started asking it.

“It means

‘Something that will disappear before very long’.”

“My flower may disappear before very long?”

“Certainly.”

“My flower is ephemeral,”

the little prince said to himself,

“and she only has four thorns

to protect her

140 against the entire world!

And I have left her all alone

on my planet!”

Suddenly he wished

that he had not left.

But he took heart again.

“What planet should I visit next?”

he asked.

“The planet Earth,”

the geographer respond to him.

150 “It’s got a good reputation.

And the little prince went on his way,

thinking of his flower.


6番目は星でした。

10倍も大きい

そこには年老いた男が住んでいました。

そしてその男は非常に多くの本を書いていました。

おお!見ろ!

探検家がここにやってきたぞ。

男は叫びました。

彼が星の王子さまを見た時

星の王子さまはテーブルに座りました。

10 彼は疲れていました。

彼は旅をしてきたのです。

今まで長い距離を

「どこから来たのかね?」

年をとった男は尋ねました。

「あの大きな本は何なの?」

星の王子さまは言いました。

「ここで何をしているの?」

「私は地理学者だ。」

年を召した男は言いました。

20 「地理学者って何?」

星の王子さまは尋ねました。

「地理学者というのは学者だ。

 地理学者は次のようなことを分かっている

 すべての海、川、

 町、山

 そして砂漠がどこにあるかを」

「それはとてもおもしろい。」

星の王子さまは言いました。

「これが本当の仕事だ。」

30 そして星の王子さまは周りを見渡しました。

地理学者の星を

彼は今までにこれ程大きくて美しい星を見たことはありませんでした。

「あなたの星はとても美しいですね。」

星の王子さまは言いました。

「海はありますか?」

「ちょっとわからないな。」

地理学者は答えました。

「ああ!

(星の王子さまはがっかりしました。)

40 山はあるのですか?」

 「わからないな。」

地理学者は言いました。

「それなら、町は? 川は? 砂漠は?」

「それもわからないな。」

地理学者は言いました。

「でも、あなたは地理学者なんでしょ?」

「その通りだ。」

地理学者は言いました。

「しかし、私は探検家ではない。」

50 探検家がここにはいないのだよ。

 地理学者は出て行かないものなんだよ。

そして、町や川、

海や砂漠を探しには行かないものなのだよ。

地理学者はとっても重要なので

歩きまわって時間を無駄にすることなど出来ない。

彼らは机を離れられないのだよ。

しかし、探検家に聞きこみ調査は行う。

 地理学者は探検家にいくつか質問をする。

 そして書き留める

60 彼らが見てきたことを

 そして、もし彼らの一人が何かを覚えていた場合

 興味深く思われそうなことを

 地理学者は調べなければならない。

 その探検家が品行方正かどうかを。

「どうして、そんなことをするんですか?」

「なぜなら、真実味にかける探検家は、深刻な問題を引き起こすからだよ。

 地理書に」

「酒飲みの探検家も同じだ。」

「どうして?」

70 星の王子さまは尋ねました。

「なぜなら、酒飲みは二重に見えるからだよ。」

そして、地理学者は2つの山を書き込んでしまうだろう。

1つしか山がない場所に」

「一人知っているよ。

 悪い探検家になるだろう人を」

星の王子さまは、言いました。

「それはありうることだ。

 そして、探検家の品行が問題ない事がわかったらすぐに

 彼の発見したものの調査を行わなければならない。」

80 「見に行くの?」

「いや、それは難しい。

 しかし、我々は探検家に証拠を提供するように要求する。

 例えば、

 もし探検家が、大きな山を発見したとしたら、

 彼はそこから大きな石を持ってくるように要求される。」

地理学者は突然興奮しました。

「しかし、君は、君は遠くから来ているじゃないか!」

「君は探検家だ!

 君は私に君の星について述べる事ができる。」

90 そして地理学者は、大きな本を開きました。

そして鉛筆を削りました。

探検家の詳細は最初は鉛筆で記されます。

証拠が出されなければならないのです。

インクで書かれる前に

「それで?」

地理学者は言いました。

「ああ。」

星の王子さまは言いました。

「ぼくの星はそんなに面白くはないよ。

100 ぼくの星には火山が3つあるんだ。

二つは活火山で

一つは休火山。

でも、それはわからないんだ。」

「それはわからない。」

地理学者は同意した。

「花も一つあるんだ。」

「我々は花については書かない。」

地理学者は言いました。

「どうして?

110 すべての中で一番綺麗なのに。」

「なぜなら、花ははかないからだよ。」

「はかないってどういう意味なの?」

「地理学の本は、」

地理学者は説明しました。

「すべての本の中で最も深い本だ。

 それらは決して古ぼけることはない。

 山が動くことはほぼありえない。

 海が乾くことはほぼありえない。

 我々は決して変わらないことを書くのだ。」

120 「でも、休火山が活動を始めるかもしれないよ。」

星の王子さまは言いました。

「はかないってどういう意味なの?」

「火山が活火山か休火山かは

 我々にとっては同じことなのだよ。」

地理学者は言いました。

「我々にとって重要なのは、それらが山だということだ。

それは決して変わらない。」

「だけど、はかないってどういう意味なの?」

星の王子さまは繰り返しました。

130 彼は質問を決してやめないのです。

一旦尋ね始めた質問は

「それは次のような意味だよ。

 ‘すぐに消えてしまうだろう何か’」

「ぼくの花はすぐに消えてしまうの?」

「そうだ。」

「ぼくの花ははかない。」

星の王子さまは独り言を言いました。

「そして彼女は4つのトゲしかない。

 彼女を守るためのトゲが

140 世界から!

 そしてぼくは、彼女をたった一人置き去りにしてきてしまった。

 星に」

突然、彼は望みました。

星を出ることを

しかし、彼は気を取り直して

「つぎはどの星に行ったらいい?」

彼は尋ねました。

「地球がいいだろう。」

地理学者は彼に答えました。

150 「地球は評判が良い。」

そして、星の王子さまは旅を続けました。
