《傲慢与偏见》有声名著第61章04(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 61

Pemberley was now Georgiana's home; and the attachment of the sisters was exactly what Darcy had hoped to see. They were able to love each other even as well as they intended. Georgiana had the highest opinion in the world of Elizabeth; though at first she often listened with an astonishment bordering on alarm at her lively, sportive, manner of talking to her brother. He, who had always inspired in herself a respect which almost overcame her affection, she now saw the object of open pleasantry. Her mind received knowledge which had never before fallen in her way. By Elizabeth's instructions, she began to comprehend that a woman may take liberties with her husband which a brother will not always allow in a sister more than ten years younger than himself.

Lady Catherine was extremely indignant on the marriage of her nephew; and as she gave way to all the genuine frankness of her character in her reply to the letter which announced its arrangement, she sent him language so very abusive, especially of Elizabeth, that for some time all intercourse was at an end. But at length, by Elizabeth's persuasion, he was prevailed on to overlook the offence, and seek a reconciliation; and, after a little farther resistance on the part of his aunt, her resentment gave way, either to her affection for him, or her curiosity to see how his wife conducted herself; and she condescended to wait on them at Pemberley, in spite of that pollution which its woods had received, not merely from the presence of such a mistress, but the visits of her uncle and aunt from the city.

With the Gardiners, they were always on the most intimate terms. Darcy, as well as Elizabeth, really loved them; and they were both ever sensible of the warmest gratitude towards the persons who, by bringing her into Derbyshire, had been the means of uniting them.

乔治安娜现在长住在彭伯里了;姑嫂之间正如达西先生所料到的那么情投意合,互尊互爱,甚至融洽得完全合乎她们自己的理想。乔治安娜非常推崇伊丽莎白,不过,开头看到嫂嫂跟哥哥谈起话来,那么活泼调皮,她不禁大为惊讶,几乎有些担心,因为她一向尊敬哥哥,几乎尊敬得超过了手足的情份,想不到现在他竟成为公开打趣的对象。她以前无论如何也弄不懂的事,现在才恍然大悟了。经过伊丽莎白的陶治,她开始懂得,妻子可以对丈夫放纵,做哥哥的却不能允许一个比自己小十岁的妹妹调皮。

咖苔琳夫人对她姨侄这门婚姻极其气愤。姨侄写信给她报喜,她竟毫不留情,直言无讳,写了封回信把他大骂一顿,对伊丽莎白尤其骂得厉害,于是双方有一个短时期断绝过往来。后来伊丽莎白说服了达西,达西才不再计较这次无礼的事,上门去求和;姨母稍许拒绝了一下便不计旧怨了,这可能是因为疼爱姨侄,也可能是因为她有好奇心,要看看侄媳妇怎样做人。尽管彭伯里因为添了这样一位主妇,而且主妇在城里的那两位舅父母都到这儿来过,因此使门户受到了玷污,但她老人家还是屈尊到彭伯里来拜访。

新夫妇跟嘉丁纳夫妇一直保持着极其深厚的交情。达西和伊丽莎白都衷心喜爱他们,又一直感激他们,原来多亏他们把伊丽莎白带到德比郡来,才成全了新夫妇这一段姻缘。
