海伦凯勒自传《我的生活》:第132期

发表时间:2017-11-14内容来源:VOA英语学习网
I followed all his movements with my hands, and caught the drollery of his blunders and gestures in a way that would have been impossible had it all been spelled to me. Then they rose to fight the duel, and I followed the swift thrusts and parries of the swords and the waverings of poor Bob as his courage oozed out at his finger ends. Then the great actor gave his coat a hitch and his mouth a twitch, and in an instant I was in the village of Falling Water and felt Schneider's shaggy head against my knee. Mr. Jefferson recited the best dialogues of "Rip Van Winkle," in which the tear came close upon the smile. He asked me to indicate as far as I could the gestures and action that should go with the lines. Of course, I have no sense whatever of dramatic action, and could make only random guesses; but with masterful art he suited the action to the word. The sigh of Rip as he murmurs, "Is a man so soon forgotten when he is gone?" the dismay with which he searches for dog and gun after his long sleep, and his comical irresolution over signing the contract with Derrick—all these seem to be right out of life itself; that is, the ideal life, where things happen as we think they should. 我用双手追随着他的每一次移动,捕捉着他滑稽可笑的肢体语言——在某种程度上,这种“语言”是无法通过拼写的方式传情达意的。终于,他们进行了最后的决斗。我感觉到了双剑击刺闪避时的锋芒,还有鲍勃摇摇晃晃的身形;可怜的鲍勃勇气渐失,他的斗志已经在指端消解殆尽。接着,这位伟大的演员猛地拉下自己的战袍,双唇止不住地抽搐。转瞬之间,我就置身在瀑布村,而且触摸到了施奈德那毛发蓬松的头正抵着我的膝盖。杰弗逊先生背诵了《里普·梵·温克尔》中的精彩对白,这是一段笑中含泪的感人情节。他还详尽地向我介绍了手势和形体应该步调一致的舞台表演经验。当然,无论是多么生动的表演,我全都一无所知,我所能做的只是胡乱猜想而已。但是,他精湛的艺术功力使他赋予表演以生命力,正如他所沉吟的里普的慨叹:“死去的人儿怎么这么快就被人遗忘?”在经历了长眠之后,他怀着失魂落魄的心情寻找他的狗和猎枪,而且,他犹豫不决地同德里克签订合约的举动也十分可笑——所有这些似乎都脱离了生活本身的意义。换句话说,理想的生活状态,应该是依照我们所认定的方式而发生的。 I remember well the first time I went to the theatre. It was twelve years ago. Elsie Leslie, the little actress, was in Boston, and Miss Sullivan took me to see her in "The Prince and the Pauper." I shall never forget the ripple of alternating joy and woe that ran through that beautiful little play, or the wonderful child who acted it. After the play I was permitted to go behind the scenes and meet her in her royal costume. 我十分清楚地记得我第一次到剧院看戏时的情景,那是十二年以前的事了。艾尔希·莱斯利,就是那位儿童演员,她当时也在波士顿,她和苏立文小姐带我去看她在《王子与乞丐》中的演出。我永远也不会忘记这出感人的小话剧,尤其是悲喜交加的剧情和儿童演员的精彩表演。演出结束后,我被允许到后台见识一下她的王家装束。 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20171114/511093.html
