美国语文第五册 第103期:马萨诸塞州的牢狱兵变(03)

宣布工夫:2017-12-04内容泉源:VOA英语学习网

He demanded their purpose in thus coming together with arms, in violation of the prison laws.

他严明指出,犯人们手拿武器的集聚举动,严峻地违犯了牢狱法例,

They replied that they were determined to obtain the remission of the punishment of their three comrades.

对方则答复,他们已下定决计,促使狱方赦宥三位犯人。

He said it was impossible; the rules of the prison must be obeyed, and they must submit.

他说,这点完全不行能,牢狱法例必需听从,犯人务必让步。

At the hint of submission they drew a little nearer together, prepared their weapons for service,

在貌似依从的表示下,犯人们开端靠拢过去,时辰预备抄家伙。

and, as they were dimly seen in the further end of the hall by those who observed from the gratings that opened up to the day,

经过餐厅远端那边天花光栅,里面监督的警官们影影绰绰看到上面犯人的活动。

a more appalling sight can not be conceived, nor one of more moral grandeur, than that of the single man standing within their grasp,

那一令人恐惧的现象看来含糊不清,那种崇高打动的捐躯亦无从得悉细节,只能瞥见那位警官孤身站在一群悲天悯人的强盗两头,

and exposed to be torn limb from limb instantly if a word or look should add to the already intense excitement.

哪怕任何只言片语分歧,或眼神不合错误路,不外霎时时间,他们就可蜂拥而至将他撕成碎片。

That excitement, too, was of a most dangerous kind.

最可骇的危急曾经来临。

It broke not forth in noise and imprecations, but was seen only in the dark looks and the strained nerves that showed a deep determination.

这种危急并非以喧闹或咒骂方式迸发,暗中中觉得的不外是那些暴戾眼神与紧绷神经,以及罪犯们绝不让步的残暴果狠。

The officer expostulated. He reminded them of the hopelessness of escape; that the town was alarmed, and that the government of the prison would submit to nothing but unconditional surrender.

那位警官有礼有节地训诫犯人,表示他们无法逃走的了局;小镇现在亦已获知牢狱的音讯,除了无条件投诚,狱方办理方不会屈服犯人提出的任何条件。

He said that all those who would go quietly away should be forgiven for this offense;

他还说,一切加入暴动的犯人将会失掉饶恕,随后不再追查,

but that if every prisoner were killed in the contest, power enough would be obtained to enforce the regulations of the prison.

但假如有犯人在抵触中殒命,牢狱将获取更多警力支持,以强化牢狱法例的实行。
