PROFILE

背は小さいが態度は大きい不良青年。相当な酒乱で絡む時には詩情溢れる不思議な罵倒をする。暴力も振るうが、喧嘩になると負ける。実は他人とも仲良くなりたいが、対等な関係の築き方がわかっていないようだ。そんな彼だが詩を詠ませると見事な感受性を発揮する。彼にとって詩は唯一の自己表現できる手段なのだろう。

A hooligan with a small stature but a big attitude. When he has caught himself up in a drunken frenzy, he goes on confounding rants overflowing with poetic sentiment. He is prone to displays of violence, but if it turns into a brawl then he always loses. The truth is, he also wants to become closer with others, but he cannot seem to figure out how to build a relationship of mutual respect. Although he is like that, when he composes poems, he demonstrates a flawless sensitivity. To him, poems may be his only outlet of self-expression.


Trivia


  • His old surname was Kashiwamura. Later on, because the Nakahara family (his mother's side) was a wealthy landowner, his surname was changed to Nakahara.
  • He greatly looked up to Miyazawa Kenji, and he had been noted to hum Miyazawa's poems from time to time.
  • He was 151.5 cm (about 4'11.5") in height.
  • He was a prodigy in elementary school. However, when his brother died in 1915, he turned to composing poetry out of sorrow. He later failed middle school because he was too engrossed in literature.
  • He translated around 60 poems by the French poet Arthur Rimbaud into Japanese. Due to their similar lifestyles, he gained the nickname 'The Japanese Rimbaud'.
  • He had a mistress, Hasegawa Yasuko, when he was 17; she was noted to be older and taller than him. However, the following year, she left Nakahara to live with his best friend Kobayashi Hideo, which frustrated him greatly.
  • After Kobayashi left Hasegawa, she married and had a child; she named Nakahara Chuuya the child's godfather.
  • He once spent a month in jail for smashing street lamps while in a drunken rage.
  • Chuuya was noted to adore children, and spoiled them rotten. When his eldest son, Fumiya, died at the age of two, Chuuya had a mental breakdown and had to be hospitalized for a month.
  • He remained close friends with Kobayashi Hideo all his life, and entrusted the manuscript for Songs of Bygone Days to him while on his deathbed.
  • He died at age 30 due to cerebral meningitis.
  • After his death, Hasegawa Yasuko established the Nakahara Chuuya Prize to honor him. The prize only lasted a few years, with Tachihara Michizou as one of its notable winners. Another award with the same name was established in 1996 by Yamaguchi City.
  • It is possible to buy an exact replica of his hat from the Nakahara Chuuya Memorial Museum.
