Translation

That year, kate's life is awful. She was stuck in a meaningless job with no friends around her. To top it off, word came that the ship on which John had been working met a storm and foundered. For a while, she cheered up when she heard that there were some survivors on the beach. But soon it was proved that John had died. At this news, she was appalled, and would not get over the fact that such a thing would come John's way. In spite of everything, she still tried to take an a ctive attitude toward life even though she had to face these adversities. it's no wonder that she achieved success in her later life.

篇三:大学英语精读第3册 第6课 课文翻译及课后答案

大学英语精读第3册 第6课 课文翻译及课后答案

一天的等待

他走进我们房间关窗户的时候,我们还未起床。我见他一副病容,全身哆嗦,脸色苍白,步履缓慢,好像一动就会引起疼痛。

“你怎么啦,宝贝?”

“我头痛。”

“你最好回床上去睡。”

“不,我没啥病。”

“你先去睡。我穿好衣服来看你。”

可是当我来到楼下时,他已穿好衣服,坐在火炉旁。这个9岁的男孩,看上去病得厉害,一副可怜的模样。我用手摸了摸他的额头,知道他发烧了。

“你到楼上去睡,”我说,“你病了。”

“我没有病,”他说。

医生来后,量了孩子的体温。

“多少度?”我问医生。

“102度。”

下楼后,医生留下用不同颜色胶囊包装的三种药丸,并嘱咐如何服用。一种药退烧,另一种润肠、通便,还有一种是去酸。他解释说,流感细菌只能在酸性环境中生存。他似乎对流感很内行,并说,如果发烧不超过104度,就用不着担心。这是轻度流感,只要当心不引起肺炎,就无危险。

我田到房里,记下孩子的体温,并记下各种胶囊的服用时间。

“要不要让我读,点书给你听?”

“好的,如果你想读的话,”孩子说。他的脸色十分苍白,眼窝下方有黑晕。他躺在床上一动不动,对周围发生的一切漠然置之。

我朗读霍华德·派尔的《海盗故事》,但我看得出他并不在听。

“你感觉怎么样,宝贝?”我问他。

“到目前为止,还是老样子,”他说。

我坐在床的脚端自个儿看书,等着到时间再给他服一粒药丸。按理,他本该睡着了。然而,当我抬头看时,他却双眼盯着床的脚端,神情异常。

“你为什么不睡一会儿呢?到吃药时,我会叫醒你的。”

“我宁愿醒着。”

过了一会儿,他对我说:“你不必呆在这里陪我,爸爸,要是这事令你烦恼的话。” “没有什么可烦恼的。”

“不,我是说,要是这事终将给你带来烦恼的话,你就不必呆在这里。”

我想,或许他有,点儿神志不清了。11点钟,照规定给他服药后,我便出去了一会儿。那是个晴朗而又寒冷的日子,地上覆盖着一层已结成冰的冻雨,就像那光秃秃的树木,那灌木丛,那砍下的树枝,以及所有的草坪和空地都用冰漆过似的。我带着我那条幼小的爱尔兰猎犬,沿着大路和一条冰冻的小溪散步。但在这玻璃般平滑的地面上站立和行走是很因难的。红毛狗一路上连跌带滑,我自己也摔倒了两次,都是挺重的。一次猎枪也摔丢了,在冰上滑出去老远。

高高的土堤上长着倒垂下来的灌木丛,我们从那下面撵起了一群鹌鹑。当它们快要从堤岸上消失时,我击落了两只。有几只鹌鹑停落在树上,但大部分飞散了,钻进了灌木丛。你得在这些被冰裹着的树丛上跳上好几下,才能把它们惊起。当你在这些

既滑又有弹性的树丛上摇摇晃晃尚未立稳之际,它们却飞了出来,使你很难射中。我击落了2只,却被逃掉了5只。动身返回时,我感到很高兴,因为我在离家不远的地方发现了一群鹌鹑,而且还剩下许多,改日可再去搜寻猎取。

回到屋里,他们说孩子不让任何人进入他的房间。

“你们不能进来,”他说。“你们千万不要传染上我的病。”

我来到他身边,发现他仍像我离开时那样躺着。他面色苍白,但两颊上部烧得发红,眼睛依旧一动不动地盯着床的另一端。

我量了他的体温。

“多少?”

“大约100,”我说。实际上是102度4分。

“原先是102度,”他说。

“谁说的?”

“医生。”

“你的体温没啥问题,”我说,“用不着担心。”

“我不担心,”他说,“但是我不能不想。”

“不要想,”我说。“放心好了。”

“我没有什么不放心的,”他说着,眼睛直盯着前方。显然,他有什么心事,但在尽力控制着自己

“将这个用水吞下。”

“你看这有用吗?”

“当然有用。”

我坐下来,打开了《海盗故事》,开始读给他听,但我看得出来他不在听,于是我停了下来。

“你看我大概什么时候会死?”他问道。

“什么?”

“到我死大概还有多少时间?”

“你不会死。你怎么啦?”

“啊,不,我会死的。我听到他说102度。”

“人发烧发到102度是不会死的。你这是说傻话。”

“我知道会的。在法国上学的时候,同学告诉我说,烧发到44度就不能活了。我已经102度了。”

原来自上午9`点起,整整一天弛都在等死。

“你这可怜的宝贝,”我说,“哦,可怜的宝贝,这就像英里和公里。你不会死的。那种温度计不一样。用那种温度计量,37度是正常的体温。用这种温度计量,正常体温是98度。”

“你肯定?”

“绝对没错,”我说。“这跟英里和公里的区别一样。你知道,就好像我们车速开到70英里该折合成多少公里一样。

“啊,”他说。

他那凝视着床的脚端的目光松弛了。他的紧张状态也终于缓和了。第二天,越发轻松了。 为了一丁点无关紧要的小事,他会动辄哭起来。

Ⅴ. Explain the following in your own words, bringing out any implied meanings:

1. The impact of Mike’s leaving on my life was beyond my imagination. I didn’t expect that Mike’s leaving would have such a tremendous power that it would change the meaning of my existence completely. All thoughts were about loss of Mike.

2. At that time, we were young mothers, and we were supposed to lead a terribly busy life full of confusion and bewilderment caused by giving birth to and raising babies. And our minds were supposed to be fully occupied by how to feed the babies and things like that. However, in the midst of all this we still felt the need to discuss some of the important thinkers of our time like Simone de Beauvoir and Arthur Koestler and T. S. Eliot’s sophisticated work The Cocktail Party.

3. I would be frightened, and my fear was not caused by my neighbors’ visibly hostile and violent way of life, but by a kind of formless and hidden emptiness and meaninglessness of human existence. What happened around me was totally irrelevant to me, and I felt very isolated and alienated.

4. She did not ask me about my new life, either out of subtle consideration for my feeling about this sensitive subject or out of disapproval of my new life style.

5. It would be a morally low thing, an indecent thing to commit infidelity in the house of a friend.

6. I knew that he was a person who had experienced the worst in life, the hardest experience a person might have to endure.

7. They experienced the worst together and they knew what it was like and

understood the meaning of that experience. Such an experience posed the gravest test to people. If they stood the test, their friendship or marriage would be strengthened, and a sacred bondage would be formed between them. But if they failed the test, their relationship would be broken and they would be driven apart.

8. If they acted on love, they would take risks. They wouldn’t do that or go further in their relationship, but they would rather let their love remains as a sweet trickle, which would flow on gently and permanently, and as an underground resource, which would never be fully tapped but would never go dry.
