美国语文第五册 第248期:暴躁易怒的妻子(02)

Cooke? But, there are so many Cookes. Can’t you distinguish her any way? Has she no Christian name? 库克?但是,叫库克的太多了,你难道记不住什么特别的?她没有教名吗? Emma, I think. Yes, Emma. 爱玛,我想想,噢,对了,她叫爱玛。 Emma Cooke? No; it can not be my friend Emma Cooke; for I am sure she was cut out for an old maid. 爱玛·库克?不会的,不可能是我的朋友爱玛·库克,我知道,她可是个天生的老处女。 This lady seems to me to be cut out for a good wife. 依我看,那位女士倒是天生的好妻子。 Maybe so. I am sure I’ll never go to see her. 或许吧。我知道了,我绝对不会去看她, Pray, my dear, how came you to see so much of her? 请问一下,亲爱的,你恐怕见过她很多次吧? I have seen very little of her, my dear. 我很少见到她,亲爱的, I only saw her two or three times before she was married. 她结婚前,我见到她两三次。 Then, my dear, how could you decide that she was cut out for a good wife? 既然这样,亲爱的,你怎么就能断定,她天生就是个好妻子呢? I am sure you could not judge of her by seeing her only two or three times, and before she was married. 我觉得,她结婚前,即便你见上三两次,恐怕也不能做出如此判断吧。 Indeed, my love, that is a very just observation. 不错,宝贝儿,恰恰就是那少见的印象。 I understand that compliment perfectly, and thank you for it, my dear. 我太清楚你的恭维了,谢谢你,亲爱的。 I must own I can bear anything better than irony. 我必须承认,我什么都吃得住,就是吃不了你的冷嘲热讽。 Irony? my dear, I was perfectly in earnest. 冷嘲热讽?亲爱的,我可是相当认真的。 Yes, yes; in earnest; so I perceive; 是的,是的,相当认真,这样,我才能觉察到。 I may naturally be dull of apprehension, but my feelings are quick enough; I comprehend too well. 我生来理性愚钝,可就是感性太快,领悟力极强。 Yes, it is impossible to judge of a woman before marriage, or to guess what sort of a wife she will make. 这么说吧,婚姻前不可能对一个女人做出正确判断,或者猜测你的妻子属于什么类型, I presume you speak from experience; you have been disappointed yourself, and repent your choice. 我推测你这样说由于你的经验之谈,你一直对自己感到沮丧,那么后悔当初的选择。 My dear, what did I say that was like this? Upon my word, I meant no such thing. 亲爱的,我说了什么?难道有这些意思?回想我说的话,完全不是这么回事, I really was not thinking of you in the least. 我压根没想到你会这么想。 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20180309/540973.html
