目前中国大陆出版的《源氏物语》,哪个版本比较好?

谢 @杨不过了邀先总说一句,《源氏物语》之中译本,现今只有丰子恺、林文月译本能相提并论。第一次看推荐林文月译本,但两者各有千秋都值得一看。为何这么说呢?因为这两个是独立译出的。丰子恺译本出版之后,中国大陆80、90年代似有一种对「重译」外国名著的风潮,然而实际上大多数所谓「重译」并非是从原来的语言独立翻译成中文,而是将以前的中文译本进行改写,丰译本《源氏物语》也在改写之列。于是以后见到殷志俊这个人「翻译」的《源氏物语》,赶紧躲开(原因见后文)。近几年郑民钦老师又独立译出了一部,由北京燕山出版社出版,然而毕竟还未如林、丰译本经过时间检验,我也未曾拜读,在此存而不论。
