《傲慢与偏见》有声名著第59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 59

"What do you mean?"

"Why, I must confess that I love him better than I do Bingley. I am afraid you will be angry."

"My dearest sister, now be serious. I want to talk very seriously. Let me know every thing that I am to know, without delay. Will you tell me how long you have loved him?"

"It has been coming on so gradually, that I hardly know when it began. But I believe I must date it from my first seeing his beautiful grounds at Pemberley."

Another intreaty that she would be serious, however, produced the desired effect; and she soon satisfied Jane by her solemn assurances of attachment. When convinced on that article, Miss Bennet had nothing farther to wish.

"Now I am quite happy," said she, "for you will be as happy as myself. I always had a value for him. Were it for nothing but his love of you, I must always have esteemed him; but now, as Bingley's friend and your husband, there can be only Bingley and yourself more dear to me. But Lizzy, you have been very sly, very reserved with me. How little did you tell me of what passed at Pemberley and Lambton! I owe all that I know of it to another, not to you."

Elizabeth told her the motives of her secrecy. She had been unwilling to mention Bingley; and the unsettled state of her own feelings had made her equally avoid the name of his friend. But now she would no longer conceal from her his share in Lydia's marriage. All was acknowledged, and half the night spent in conversation.

"Good gracious!" cried Mrs. Bennet, as she stood at a window the next morning, "if that disagreeable Mr. Darcy is not coming here again with our dear Bingley! What can he mean by being so tiresome as to be always coming here? I had no notion but he would go a-shooting, or something or other, and not disturb us with his company. What shall we do with him? Lizzy, you must walk out with him again, that he may not be in Bingley's way."

Elizabeth could hardly help laughing at so convenient a proposal; yet was really vexed that her mother should be always giving him such an epithet.

As soon as they entered, Bingley looked at her so expressively, and shook hands with such warmth, as left no doubt of his good information; and he soon afterwards said aloud, "Mrs. Bennet, have you no more lanes hereabouts in which Lizzy may lose her way again to-day?"

"I advise Mr. Darcy, and Lizzy, and Kitty," said Mrs. Bennet, "to walk to Oakham Mount this morning. It is a nice long walk, and Mr. Darcy has never seen the view."

"It may do very well for the others," replied Mr. Bingley; "but I am sure it will be too much for Kitty. Won't it, Kitty?"

第五十九章

“你这话是什么意思?“

“嗳,我得承认,我爱他要比爱彬格莱更深切。我怕你要生气吧。“

“好妹妹,请你严肃一些。我要听你严肃地谈一谈。凡是可以对我说的话,赶快对我说个明白,你是否愿意告诉我,你爱他有多久了?“

“这是慢慢儿发展起来的,我也说不出从什么时候开始,不过我觉得,应该从看到彭伯里他那美丽的花园算起。“

姐姐又叫她严肃些,这一次总算产生了效果;她立刻依了吉英的意见,郑重其事地把自己爱他的经过讲给吉英听。班纳特小姐弄明白了这一点以后,便万事放心了。

她说:“我现在真是太幸福了,因为你也会同我一样幸福。我一向很器重他。不说别的,光是为了他爱你,我也就要永远敬重他了;他既是彬格莱的朋友,现在又成了你的丈夫,那么除了彬格莱和你以外,我最喜欢的当然就是他啦。可是丽萃,你太狡猾了,平常连一点口风也不向我吐露。彭伯里的事和蓝白屯的事从来没有说给我听过!我所知道的一些情形,都是别人说给我听的,不是你自己说的。“

伊丽莎白只得把保守秘密的原因告诉了她。原来她以前不愿意提起彬格莱,加上她又心绪不宁,所以也不讲起达西,可是现在,她大可不必再把达西为丽迪雅婚姻奔忙的那段情节,瞒住吉英了。她把一切事都和盘托出,姐妹俩一直谈到半夜。

第二天早上,班纳特太太站在窗口叫道:“天哪!那位讨厌的达西先生又跟着我们的彬格莱一块儿上这儿来了!他为什么那样不知趣,老是要上这儿来?我但愿他去打鸟,或者随便去干点什么,可别来吵我们。叫我们拿他怎么办?丽萃,你又得同他出去散散步才好,不要让他在这里麻烦彬格莱。“

母亲想出这个办法来,正是伊丽莎白求之不得的,她禁不住要笑出来,可是听到母亲老是说他讨厌,她亦不免有些气恼。

两位贵客一走进门,彬格莱便意味深长地望着她,热烈地跟她的握手,她一看见这情形,便断定他准是消息十分灵通;不多一会儿工夫,他果然大声说道:“班纳特太太,这一带还有什么别的曲径小道,可以让丽萃今天再去迷路吗?“

班纳特太太说:“我要劝达西先生、丽萃和吉蒂,今天上午都上奥克汉山去。这一段长路走起来挺有味,达西先生还没有见过那儿的风景呢。“

彬格莱先生说:“对他们两人当然再好也没有了,我看吉蒂一定吃不消。是不是,吉蒂?“
