海伦凯勒自传《我的生活》:第131期

发表时间:2017-11-14内容来源:VOA英语学习网
I have been permitted to touch the face and costume of Miss Ellen Terry as she impersonated our ideal of a queen; and there was about her that divinity that hedges sublimest woe. Beside her stood Sir Henry Irving, wearing the symbols of kingship; and there was majesty of intellect in his every gesture and attitude and the royalty that subdues and overcomes in every line of his sensitive face. In the king's face, which he wore as a mask, there was a remoteness and inaccessibility of grief which I shall never forget. 当艾伦·泰莉小姐扮好人们理想中的王后时,我被允许触摸她的脸和身上的装束。我能感受到她赋予了角色一种庄严的神圣感,以及抑制无尽悲伤的高贵气质。站在她身边的是亨利·欧文爵士,他穿着象征王权的袍服,举手投足之间,无不流露出君王的雄才大略;而含而不露的王家威仪则铭刻在他脸部的每一个纹路上。在国王的脸上,我似乎摸到了一副面具,那种冷漠而难以解读的忧伤令人终身难忘。 I also know Mr. Jefferson. I am proud to count him among my friends. I go to see him whenever I happen to be where he is acting. The first time I saw him act was while at school in New York. He played "Rip Van Winkle." I had often read the story, but I had never felt the charm of Rip's slow, quaint, kind ways as I did in the play. Mr. Jefferson's, beautiful, pathetic representation quite carried me away with delight. I have a picture of old Rip in my fingers which they will never lose. After the play Miss Sullivan took me to see him behind the scenes, and I felt of his curious garb and his flowing hair and beard. Mr. Jefferson let me touch his face so that I could imagine how he looked on waking from that strange sleep of twenty years, and he showed me how poor old Rip staggered to his feet. 我还认识了杰弗逊先生,我以结交他这样的朋友为荣。无论什么时候,我去看他的时候他都有演出。我第一次看他的表演是在纽约上学的时候,当时他正在演出《里普·梵·温克尔》。我曾经读过这个故事,可是我从来不觉得里普那慢条斯理、奇特而友善的行为方式有什么过人之处。而杰弗逊先生那优美动人,极具悲剧意味的表演一下子就抓住了我的心。我的手指上“保留着”一幅“老里普”的画像,我永远也不会失去它。演出过后,苏立文小姐带我来到后台,我触摸到了里普那奇特的装束,他飘拂的头发和脸上的胡须。杰弗逊先生让我摸他的脸,这样我就能想象出在他沉睡了二十年之后一朝复苏的样子;而且,他还向我演示了可怜的老里普是如何步履蹒跚地走路的。 I have also seen him in "The Rivals." Once while I was calling on him in Boston he acted the most striking parts of "The Rivals" for me. The reception-room where we sat served for a stage. He and his son seated themselves at the big table, and Bob Acres wrote his challenge. 我还在《对手》中看到过他的表演。记得有一次我曾在波士顿拜访过他,而他特别为我表演了《对手》中最精彩的情节。我们见面的会客厅被当做一个临时舞台,他和他的儿子一起坐在一张大桌子旁边,而鲍勃·埃克斯则书写着他的战表。 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20171114/511092.html
