美国语文第五册 第302期:弗吉尼亚人(04)

宣布工夫:2018-04-15内容泉源:VOA英语学习网

The elder was peaceful, studious, and silent; the younger was warlike and noisy.

老大温和勤学且夸夸其谈,老二则寻衅好战,沉溺嬉闹。

He was quick at learning when he began, but very slow at beginning.

屡屡开端学习,他反响很快;一旦进入课程便显得分外呆笨。

No threats of the ferule would provoke Harry to learn in an idle fit, or would prevent George from helping his brother in his lesson.

来自戒尺的惩戒对废寝忘食的哈里杯水车薪;同时,亦无法制止乔治帮忙弟弟规避勤奋。

Harry was of a strong military turn, drilled the little negroes on the estate,

哈里的军事悟性极高,他习气模拟军官,竟然有模有样地训练庄园一批黑人少年,

and caned them like a corporal, having many good boxing matches with them, and never bearing malice if he was worsted;

常常习气模拟军士用藤杖鞭打那些少年,或与他们停止剧烈的拳击比赛,即便被打趴在地,哈里断然亦不会意怀歹意或萌发仇恨;

—whereas George was sparing of blows, and gentle with all about him.

相反,乔治从不与人殴斗,对人总是平和和睦。

As the custom in all families was, each of the boys had a special little servant assigned him: and it was a known fact that George,

像外地一切贵族家庭一样,每个贵族男孩都有专门伺童跟随服侍,乔治有件轶事在外地无人不晓。

finding his little wretch of a blackamoor asleep on his master's bed, sat down beside it,

一天,乔治发明本人伺童竟然在他这个主人的床上睡着了,他一声不吭地在床边坐下,

and brushed the flies off the child with a feather fan, to the horror of old Gumbo,

拿起一把羽毛扇给谁人小好人撵蚊虫;

the child's father, who found his young master so engaged, and to the indignation of Madam Esmond,

让孩子爸爸、老黑奴甘博万分恐惊的是,埃斯蒙德夫人晓得此预先末路怒万分

who ordered the young negro off to the proper officer for a whipping.

面前目今儿子的年老奴才手脚不断忙活不绝。她马上付托摈除那小好人去承受鞭刑。

In vain George implored and entreated— burst into passionate tears, and besought a remission of the sentence.

乔治的祈责备然无用,居然在阁下声泪俱下起来,他苦苦乞求母亲赦宥他的跟班,

His mother was inflexible regarding the young rebel's punishment, and the little negro went off beseeching his young master not to cry.

固然,埃斯蒙德夫人压根不会放过对这个玄色小反骨的处罚,那位小伺童却走上前央求他的小主人不要哭泣。
