海伦凯勒自传《我的生活》:第65期

发表时间:2017-06-25内容来源:VOA英语学习网
Chapter XIV 第十四章 The winter of 1892 was darkened by the one cloud in my childhood's bright sky. Joy deserted my heart, and for a long, long time I lived in doubt, anxiety and fear. Books lost their charm for me, and even now the thought of those dreadful days chills my heart. A little story called "The Frost King," which I wrote and sent to Mr. Anagnos, of the Perkins Institution for the Blind, was at the root of the trouble. In order to make the matter clear, I must set forth the facts connected with this episode, which justice to my teacher and to myself compels me to relate. 1892年冬天,我童年时代的明亮天空被一抹乌云所遮盖。喜乐的心弃我而去。在很长、很长的一段时期里,我都活在疑惑、焦虑和恐惧之中。书本在我眼中失去了吸引力,直到现在,那段可怕的日子仍然令我心有余悸。我曾编写过一个题目叫做《冰雪之王》的小故事,我还把它送给了帕金斯盲人学院的阿纳戈诺斯先生,这个故事就是引起麻烦的根源。为了把事实交代清楚,我必须先从相关的线索讲起,我想,这对于我的老师和我要陈述的事件也是公平合理的。 I wrote the story when I was at home, the autumn after I had learned to speak. We had stayed up at Fern Quarry later than usual. While we were there, Miss Sullivan had desCRIbed to me the beauties of the late foliage, and it seems that her desCRIptions revived the memory of a story, which must have been read to me, and which I must have unconsciously retained. I thought then that I was "making up a story," as children say, and I eagerly sat down to write it before the ideas should slip from me. My thoughts flowed easily; I felt a sense of joy in the composition. Words and images came tripping to my finger ends, and as I thought out sentence after sentence, I wrote them on my braille slate. Now, if words and images come to me without effort, it is a pretty sure sign that they are not the offspring of my own mind, but stray waifs that I regretfully dismiss. 我是在家中写下那个故事的,时间是在我学会说话之后的那年秋天。当时,我们住在弗恩采石场,睡觉的时间也比平时晚得多。苏立文小姐向我描述了深秋树叶的美丽多彩,她的讲述似乎唤醒了(我对)某个故事沉睡的记忆。这个故事一定被我读到过,我一定是在不知不觉间记住了这个故事。于是我想,我也要编写一个故事。说写就写,我任凭各种各样的思绪从头脑中汩汩涌出。我体会到了文思泉涌的快乐,我发现了创作过程的喜悦。富有生命的文字和想象轻快地游走在我的指端,我把一个又一个句子写在了我的盲文木板上。如今,假如词语和想象变得唾手可得,显然,这表明它们并非是出自我思想的产物,最多只是被我头脑遗弃的零星碎片。 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20170625/469583.html
