引用:「ジョン・ダン詩集」湯浅信之編 岩波書店

Trinity: Father, Son, Holy Ghost. The Christian term for the threefold nature of God.

The word is also a name: the name of the site where the first atomic bomb experiments took place at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, U.S.A.

No one knows quite how this place got its name.

Perhaps it was named after a nearby mountain said to be so evil it was shunned by even the Native Americans. Or perhaps it simply refers to the threefold experiment about to take place—an experiment that began there with the detonation of the first atomic bomb, the Gadget, and that continued with Little Boy, which was dropped on Hiroshima, and that concluded with Fat Man, which was dropped on Nagasaki.

Years later, J. Robert Oppenheimer, the nuclear physicist who directed the Manhattan Project and oversaw nuclear weapons development in the U.S., tried to recall the reason for the name, but in the end, was unable to remember it clearly.

Still, though, he said, I’m sure I had that poem by John Donne somewhere in the back of my mind.

BATTER my heart, three-persone'd God; for you
As yet but knock, breathe, shine, and seek to mend;
That I may rise, and stand, o’erthrow me, and bend
Your force, to break, blow, burn, and make me new.

Quotes: ed. Nobuyuki Yuasa, The Poetic Works of John Donne, Iwanami Shoten
