《傲慢与偏见》有声名著第45章02(中英对照)

00:00

《傲慢与偏见》(Pride and prejudice)是简·奥斯汀最早完成的作品之一.这部作品以日常生活为素材,一反当时社会上流行的感伤小说的内容和矫揉造作的写作方法,生动地反映 了18世纪末到19世纪初处于保守和闭塞状态下的英国乡镇生活和世态人情。这部社会风情画式的小说不仅在当时吸引着广大的读者,时至今日,仍给读者以独特 的艺术享受。

Chapter 45

While thus engaged, Elizabeth had a fair opportunity of deciding whether she most feared or wished for the appearance of Mr. Darcy, by the feelings which prevailed on his entering the room; and then, though but a moment before she had believed her wishes to predominate, she began to regret that he came.

He had been some time with Mr. Gardiner, who, with two or three other gentlemen from the house, was engaged by the river, and had left him only on learning that the ladies of the family intended a visit to Georgiana that morning. No sooner did he appear, than Elizabeth wisely resolved to be perfectly easy and unembarrassed; -- a resolution the more necessary to be made, but perhaps not the more easily kept, because she saw that the suspicions of the whole party were awakened against them, and that there was scarcely an eye which did not watch his behaviour when he first came into the room. In no countenance was attentive curiosity so strongly marked as in Miss Bingley's, in spite of the smiles which overspread her face whenever she spoke to one of its objects; for jealousy had not yet made her desperate, and her attentions to Mr. Darcy were by no means over. Miss Darcy, on her brother's entrance, exerted herself much more to talk; and Elizabeth saw that he was anxious for his sister and herself to get acquainted, and forwarded, as much as possible, every attempt at conversation on either side. Miss Bingley saw all this likewise; and, in the imprudence of anger, took the first opportunity of saying, with sneering civility,

"Pray, Miss Eliza, are not the ----shire militia removed from Meryton? They must be a great loss to your family."

In Darcy's presence she dared not mention Wickham's name; but Elizabeth instantly comprehended that he was uppermost in her thoughts; and the various recollections connected with him gave her a moment's distress; but, exerting herself vigorously to repel the ill-natured attack, she presently answered the question in a tolerably disengaged tone. While she spoke, an involuntary glance shewed her Darcy with an heightened complexion, earnestly looking at her, and his sister overcome with confusion and unable to lift up her eyes. Had Miss Bingley known what pain she was then giving her beloved friend, she undoubtedly would have refrained from the hint; but she had merely intended to discompose Elizabeth, by bringing forward the idea of a man to whom she believed her partial, to make her betray a sensibility which might injure her in Darcy's opinion, and perhaps to remind the latter of all the follies and absurdities by which some part of her family were connected with that corps. Not a syllable had ever reached her of Miss Darcy's meditated elopement. To no creature had it been revealed, where secrecy was possible, except to Elizabeth; and from all Bingley's connections her brother was particularly anxious to conceal it, from that very wish which Elizabeth had long ago attributed to him, of their becoming hereafter her own. He had certainly formed such a plan, and without meaning that it should affect his endeavour to separate him from Miss Bennet, it is probable that it might add something to his lively concern for the welfare of his friend.

第四十五章

吃东西的时候,达西先生走了进来,伊丽莎白便趁此辨别一下自己的心情,究竟是希望他在场,还是害怕他在场。辨别的结果,虽然自以为盼望的心情多于害怕的心情,可是他进来了不到一分钟,她却又认为他还是不进来的好。

且说达西原先同自己家里两三个人陪着嘉丁纳先生在河边钓鱼,后来一听到嘉丁纳太太和她外甥女当天上午就要来拜望乔治安娜,便立刻离开了他们,回到家里来。伊丽莎白见他走进来,便临机应变,下定决心,促使自己千万要表现得从容不迫,落落大方。她下定这个决心,确实很必要,只可惜事实上不大容易做到,因为她看到全场的人都在怀疑他们俩;达西一走进来,几乎没有一只眼睛不在注意着他的举止。虽然人人都有好奇心,可是谁也不象彬格莱小姐那么露骨,她在她对他们两人中间随便哪一个谈起话来,还是满面笑容,这是因为她还没有嫉妒到不择手段的地步,也没有对达西先生完全死心。达西小姐看见哥哥来了,便尽量多说话;伊丽莎白看出达西极其盼望她跟他妹妹处熟起来,他还尽量促进她们双方多多攀谈。彬格莱小姐把这些情形看不眼里,很是气愤,也就顾不得唐突,顾不得礼貌,一有机会便冷言冷语地说:

“请问你,伊丽莎白小姐,麦里屯的民兵团不是开走了吗?府上一定觉得这是一个很大的损失吧。“

她只是不敢当着达西的面明目张胆地提起韦翰的名字,可是伊丽莎白立刻懂得她指的就是那个人,因此不禁想起过去跟他的一些来往,一时感到难过。这是一种恶意的攻击,伊丽莎白非要狠狠地还击她一下不可,于是她立刻用一种满不在乎的声调回答了她那句话。她一面说,一面不由自主地对达西望了一眼,只见达西涨红了脸,恳切地望着她,达西的妹妹更是万分慌张,低头无语。彬格莱小姐如果早知道这种不三不四的话会使得她自己的意中人这样苦痛,她自然就决不会说出中了。她只是存心要打乱伊丽莎白的心思,她以为伊丽莎白过去曾倾心于那个男人,便故意说了出来,便她出出丑,让达西看不起她,甚至还可以让达西想起她几个妹妹曾经为了那个民兵团闹出多少荒唐的笑话。至于达西小姐想要私奔的事情,她一点也不知情,因为达西先生对这件事一向尽量保守秘密,除了伊丽莎白小姐以外,没有向任何人透露过。她对彬格莱的亲友们隐瞒得特别小心,因为他认为以后要和他们攀亲,这也是伊丽莎白意料中的事。他的确早就有了这个打算;也许就是为了这个原因,便对彬格莱的幸福更加关心,可并不是因此而千方百计地拆散彬格莱和班纳特小姐的好事。
