      逐字逐句閱讀《Jane Eyre》

      因為水平有限,從來沒有耐心閱讀完整部的英文名著,從現在開始,每天讀一點點,堅持到底?。?!希望大家監督

      Chapter 1

      There was no possibility of taking a walk that day. We had beening wandering, indeed, in the leafless shrubbery an hour in the morning; but since dinner (Mrs. Reed, when there was no company, dined early) the cold winter wind had brought with it clouds so sombre, and a rain so penetrating, that further outdoor exercise was now out of the question.
      shrubbery: 灌木,灌木林
      sombre: 昏暗的,陰沉的

      I was glad of it; I never liked long walks, especially on chilly afternoons: dreadful to me was the coming home in the raw twilight, with nipped fingers and toes,  and a heart saddened by the chidings of Bessie, the nurse, and humbled by the consciousness of my physical inferiority to Eliza, John, and Georgiana Reed.
      nip: 凍傷
      chide: 斥責,責罵

      The said Eliza, John, and Georgiana were now clustered round their mamma in the drawing-room: she lay reclined on a sofa by the fireside, and with her darlings about her (for the time neither quarrelling nor crying) looked perfectly happy. Me, she had dispensed from joining the group, saying, "She regretted to be under the necessity of keeping me at a distance; but that until she heard from Bessie, and could discover by her own observation that I was endeavouring in good earnest to acquire a more sociable and childlike disposition, a more attractive and sprightly manner -- something lighter, franker, more natural, as it were -- she really must excluded me from privileges intended only for contented, happy little children."
      in good earnest: 非常認真的
      disposition: 一貫的性情,脾氣
      a sweet disposition: 和藹溫柔的性格
      sprightly: 充滿活力的
      as it were: 可以說

      "What does Bessie say I have done?" I asked.
      "Jane, I don't like cavillers or questioners; besides, there is something truly forbidding in a child taking up her elders in that manner. Be seated somewhere; and until you can speak pleasantly, remain silent."
      cavil: 挑剔,找錯
      caviller: 吹毛求疵的人
      take up: 責備

      A small breakfast-room adjoined the drawing-room, I slipped in there. It contained a bookcase; I soon possessed myself of a volume, taking care that it should be one stored with pictures. I mounted into the window-seat: gathering up my feet, I sat crosslegged, like a Turk; and, having drawn the red moreen curtain nearly close, I was shrined in double retirement.
      window-seat: (窗檻下的)窗座, 靠窗座位
      gather up: 蜷縮
      Turk: 土耳其人
      moreen: (做窗簾、帷幕等用的)波紋毛呢, 波紋條毛布
      retirement: 幽靜地方, 偏僻地方

      Folds of scarlet drapery shut in my view to the right hand; to the left were the clear panes of glass, protecting, but not separating me from the drear November day. At intervals, while turning over the leaves in my book, I studied the aspect of that winter afternoon. Afar, it offered a pale blank of mist and cloud; near, a scene of wet lawn and storm-beat shrub, with ceaseless rain sweeping away wildly before a long and lamentable blast.
      drapery: (供裝飾用的)織物, 幃帳, 布料
      pane: 窗門上的玻璃格子
      drear: =dreary 陰沉的
      lamentable: 令人不快的

      I returned to my book -- Bewick's HISTORY OF BRITISH BIRDS: the letterpress thereof I cared little for, generally speaking; and yet there were certain introductory pages that, child as I was, I could not pass quite as a blank. They were those which treat of the haunts of sea-fowl; of "the solitary rocks and promontories" by them only inhabited; of the coast of Norway, studded with isles from its southern extremity, the Lindeness, or Naze, to the North Cape --
      letterpress: 正文,如一本書中區別于插圖和其他裝飾的文字
      treat of: 論及,涉及
      stud: 散布,點綴

      Where the Northern Ocean, in vast whirls,
      Boils round the naked, melancholy isles
      Of farthest Thule; and the Atlantic surge
      Pours in among the stormy Hebrides.
      melancholy: 憂郁的
      Thule: 極北之地
      Hebrides: 赫布里底群島

      Nor could I pass unnoticed the suggestion of the bleak shores of Lapland, Siberia, Spitzbergen, Nova Zembla, Iceland, Greenland, with "the vast sweep of the Arctic Zone, and those forlorn regions of dreary space -- that reservoir of frost and snow, where firm fields of ice, the accumulation of centuries of winters, glazed in Alpine heights above heights, surround the pole, and concentre the multiplied rigours of extreme cold." Of these death-white realms I formed an idea of my own: shadowy, like all the half-comprehended notions that float dim through children's brains, but strangely impressive. The words in these introductory pages connected themselves with the succeeding vignettes, and gave significance to the rock standing up alone in a sea of billow and spray; to the broken boat stranded on a desolate coast; to the cold and ghastly moon glancing through bars of cloud at a wreck just sinking.
      bleak: 寒冷的, 荒涼的
      forlorn: 絕望的; 被遺棄的, 孤獨無助的; 凄涼的
      glaze:  使表面光滑
      rigour:  [常用復](氣候等的)凜烈
      vignette: 小插圖
      billow: 巨浪
      stranded: 擱淺的,進退兩難的 (還記得DZ在春節前發的關于滯留旅客的帖子吧?stranded passengers, 看到這個詞現在感覺好親切哈
      ghastly: 死人般的, 蒼白的

      I cannot tell what sentiment haunted the quite solitary churchyard, with its inscribed headstone; its gate, its two trees, its low horizon, girdled by a broken wall, and its newly risen crescent, attesting the hour of eventide.
      The two ships becalmed on a torpid sea, I believed to be marine phantoms.
      The fiend pinning down the thief's pack behind him, I passed over quickly: it was an object of terror.
      So was the black, horned thing seated aloof on a rock, surveying a distant crowd surrounding a gallows.
      headstone: 墓石
      girdle: 環繞
      crescent: 新月
      phantom: 幻影;幽靈, 鬼怪
      fiend: 惡魔;妖怪
      pin down: 使受約束, 阻止, 壓制
      gallows: 絞架

      Each picture told a story; mysterious often to my undeveloped understanding and imperfect feelings, yet ever profoundly interesting: as interesting as the tales Bessie sometimes narrated on winter evenings, when she chanced to be in good humour; and when, having brought her ironing-table to the nursery-hearth, she allowed us to sit about it, and while she got up Mrs. Reed's lace frills, and crimped her nightcap borders, fed our eager attention with passages of love and adventure taken from old fairy tales and older ballads; or (as at a later period I discovered) from the pages of PAMELA, and HENRY, EARL OF MORELAND.
      frill: (服裝的)褶邊, 裝飾

      With Bewick on my knee, I was then happy: happy at least in my way. I feared nothing but interruption, and that came too soon. The breakfast-room door was opened.
          "Boh! Madam Mope!" cried the voice of John Reed; then he paused: he found the room apparently empty.
          "Where the dickens is she?" he continued. "Lizzy! Georgy! (calling to his sisters) Jane is not here: tell mamma she is run out into the rain -- bad animal!"
          "It is well I drew the curtain," thought I, and wished fervently he might not discover my hiding-place: nor would John Reed have found it out himself; he was not quick either of vision or conception; but Eliza just put her head in at the door, and said at once: "She is in the window-seat, to be sure, Jack."
          And I came out immediately, for I trembled at the idea of being dragged forth by the said Jack.
          "What do you want?" I asked with awkward diffidence.
          "Say, 'What do you want, Master Reed,' " was the answer. "I want you to come here"; and seating himself in an arm-chair, he intimated by a gesture that I was to approach and stand before him.
      mope: 悶悶不樂,憂郁的人或情緒低落的人
      fervently: 熱心地, 熱誠地
      diffidence: 缺乏自信;膽怯

      John Reed was a schoolboy of fourteen years old; four years older than I, for I was but ten; large and stout for his age, with a dingy and unwholesome skin; thick lineaments in a spacious visage, heavy limbs and large extremities. He gorged himself habitually at table, which made him bilious, and gave him a dim and bleared eye with flabby cheeks. He ought now to have been at school; but his mamma had taken him home for a month or two, "on account of his delicate health." Mr. Miles, the master, affirmed that he would do very well if he had fewer cakes and sweetmeats sent him from home; but the mother's heart turned from an opinion so harsh, and inclined rather to the more refined idea that John's sallowness was owing to over-application, and, perhaps, to pining after home.
      dingy: 黑暗的
      lineament: 面部輪廓
      visage: 臉,面容
      extremity: 手足
      gorge: 狼吞虎咽, 塞飽
      bilious: 膽汁質的, 壞脾氣的
      blear: 使(眼)花, 模糊
      sallowness: 菜色
      pine: 懷念,常指思鄉的愿望

      John had not much affection to his mother and sisters, and an antipathy to me. He bullied and punished me; not two or three times in the week, nor once or twice in a day, but continually: every nerve I had feared him, and every morsel of flesh on my bones shrank when he came near. There were moments when I was bewildered by the terror he inspired, because I had no appeal whatever against either his menaces or his inflictions; the servants did not like to offend their young master by taking my part against him, and Mrs. Reed was blind and deaf on the subject: she never saw him strike or heard him abuse me, though he did both now and then in her very presence; more frequently, however, behind her back.
      antipathy: 憎惡, 反感
      morsel: 小量;一點
      menace: 恐嚇, 威脅

          Habitually obedient to John, I came up to his chair: he spent some three minutes in thrusting out his tongue at me as far as he could without damaging the roots: I knew he would soon strike, and while dreading the blow, I mused on the disgusting and ugly appearance of him who would presently deal it. I wondered if he read that notion in my face; for, all at once, without speaking, he struck suddenly and strongly. I tottered, and on regaining my equilibrium retired back a step or two from his chair.
      totter: 蹣跚, 踉蹌

      "That's for your impudence in answering mamma a while since, " said he, "and for your sneaking way of getting behind curtains, and for the look you had in your eyes two minutes since, you rat!"
          Accustomed to John Reed's abuse, I never had an idea of replying to it: my care was how to endure the blow which would certainly follow the insult.
          "What were you doing behind the curtain? " he asked.
          "I was reading."
          "Show the book."
          I returned to the window and fetched it thence.
          "You have no business to take our books; you are a dependant, mamma says; you have no money; your father left you none; you ought to beg, and not to live here with gentlemen's children like us, and eat the same meals we do, and wear clothes at our mamma's expense. Now, I'll teach you to rummage my bookshelves: for they are mine; all the house belongs to me, or will do in a few years. Go and stand by the door, out of the way of the mirror and the windows."
          I did so, not at first aware what was his intention; but when I saw him lift and poise the book and stand in act to hurl it, I instinctively started aside with a cry of alarm: not soon enough, however; the volume was flung, it hit me, and I fell, striking my head against the door and cutting it. The cut bled, the pain was sharp: my terror had passed its climax; other feelings succeeded.
      impudence: 輕率,粗野無禮的行為
      business: 權利:正確或恰當的關系或興趣
                如:“The business of America is business”(Calvin Coolidge)
                                 “美國的權利是交易”(卡爾文·柯立芝)
      rummage: 翻箱倒柜的尋找
      start aside: 跳開

      "Wicked and cruel boy!" I said. "You are like a murderer -- you are like a slave-driver -- you are like the Roman emperors!"
          I had read Goldsmith's HISTORY OF ROME, and had formed my opinion of Nero, Caligula, &c. Also I had drawn parallels in silence, which I never thought thus to have declared aboud.
          "What! what!" he cried. "Did she say that to me? Did you hear her, Eliza and Georgiana? Won't I tell mamma? but first --"
          He ran headlong at me: I felt him grasp my hair and my shoulder: he had closed with a desperate thing. I really saw in him a tyrant: a murderer. I felt a drop or two of blood from my head trickle down from my neck, and was sensible of somewhat pungent suffering: these sensations for the time predominated over fear, and I received him in frantic sort. I don't very well know what I did with my hands, but he called me "Rat! rat!" and bellowed out aloud. Aid was near him: Eliza and Georgiana had run for Mrs. Reed, who was gone upstairs; she now came upon the scene, followed by Bessie and her maid Abbot. We were parted: I heard the words --
          "Dear! dear! What a fury to fly at Master John!"
          "Did ever anybody see such a picture of passion!"
          Then Mrs. Reed subjoined: "Take her away to the red-room, and lock her in there." Four hands were immediately laid upon me, and I was borne upstairs.
      slave-driver: 奴隸監工
      tyrant: 暴君
      frantic: 狂亂的, 瘋狂的
      bellow out: 大聲喊出
      fly at: 猛烈攻擊
      subjoin: 增補, 附加
