2021考研英语文章阅读:杀死一只知更鸟第4章-4

Jem gulped down his second glassful and slapped his chest. “I know what we aregoing to play,” he announced. “Something new, something different.”

“What?” asked Dill.

“Boo Radley.”

Jem’s head at times was transparent: he had thought that up to make me understandhe wasn’t afraid of Radleys in any shape or form, to contrast his own fearless heroismwith my cowardice.

杰姆喝下第二杯后拍拍胸脯。“我们有东西演了,”他宣布说,“演点新东西,演点别的。”

“什么?”迪尔问。

“布-拉德利。”

杰姆的想法有时是容易被人识破的:他的这个主意是想让我知道什么样的拉德利他都不怕,这样他就好让他那毫不畏惧的英雄气概和我的怯懦形成鲜明的对比。

“Boo Radley? How?” asked Dill.

Jem said, “Scout, you can be Mrs. Radley-”

“I declare if I will. I don’t think-”

“Smatter?” said Dill. “Still scared?”

“He can get out at night when we’re all asleep…” I said.

Jem hissed. “Scout, how’s he gonna know what we’re doin‘? Besides, I don’t thinkhe’s still there. He died years ago and they stuffed him up the chimney.”

“布?拉德利?怎么演?”迪尔问。

杰姆说,“斯各特,你可以演拉德利太太……”

“哎呀呀.我决不干。我不认为……”

“有啥关系?”迪尔问,“还害怕?”

“等我们晚上睡觉时他会出来的……”我说。

杰姆嘘了一声。“斯各特,他怎么知道我们干什么?再说,我不相信他还在那儿。几年前他就死了,他们把他塞进了烟囱。”

Dill said, “Jem, you and me can play and Scout can watch if she’s scared.”

I was fairly sure Boo Radley was inside that house, but I couldn’t prove it, and felt itbest to keep my mouth shut or I would be accused of believing in Hot Steams,phenomena I was immune to in the daytime.

迪尔说:杰姆,咱俩演。斯各特害怕就让她看好了。”

我敢肯定布·拉德利在房子里边,可我无法证实。还是少说为佳,要不,他会说我也相信“热气”了。对于那种现象,我在白天是不理会的。

Jem parceled out our roles: I was Mrs. Radley, and all I had to do was come out andsweep the porch. Dill was old Mr. Radley: he walked up and down the sidewalk andcoughed when Jem spoke to him. Jem, naturally, was Boo: he went under the frontsteps and shrieked and howled from time to time.

杰姆把角色分派如下:我是拉德利太太,我要做的就是出来打扫走廊;迪尔是老拉德利先生,他在人行道上走来走去,杰姆打招呼时他只咳嗽一声;杰姆自己当然是布·拉德利,他被关在前面的台阶下,不时嚎哭尖叫。

As the summer progressed, so did our game. We polished and perfected it, addeddialogue and plot until we had manufactured a small play upon which we rang changesevery day.

随着夏天一天天过去,我们的节日一天天进步。我们反复修改加工,增补对话和情节,直到后来变成了一个短剧。在这个基础上,我们每天再加上些新东西。

Dill was a villain’s villain: he could get into any character part assigned him, andappear tall if height was part of the devilry required. He was as good as his worstperformance; his worst performance was Gothic. I reluctantly played assorted ladieswho entered the script. I never thought it as much fun as Tarzan, and I played thatsummer with more than vague anxiety despite Jem’s assurances that Boo Radley wasdead and nothing would get me, with him and Calpurnia there in the daytime and Atticushome at night.

迪尔真是演反面角色的好料:他演什么象什么,如果对某个反面角色的要求是很高的身材的话,他演出来就好象他很高大似的。他演得最差的也是好戏。哥特式小说他演得最差。我很勉强地扮演这个剧里出现的各种女角色。我认为这出戏没有《人猿泰山》有意思。整整一个夏天,我一边演一边总是心神不安。尽管杰姆保证布?拉德利已死,说我不会出事,因为白天有他和卡尔珀尼亚,晚上有阿迪克斯在家。

Jem was a born hero.

杰姆真是天生的英雄。

It was a melancholy little drama, woven from bits and scraps of gossip andneighborhood legend: Mrs. Radley had been beautiful until she married Mr. Radley andlost all her money. She also lost most of her teeth, her hair, and her right forefinger(Dill’s contribution. Boo bit it off one night when he couldn’t find any cats and squirrels toeat.); she sat in the livingroom and cried most of the time, while Boo slowly whittledaway all the furniture in the house.

这是一出由街谈巷议和左邻右舍的传说一点点拼凑而成的有悲伤情调的短剧:拉德利太太原来很漂亮,后来与拉德利先生结了婚,失去了财产。她还失去了大部分牙齿,头发也少了,右手的食指也没有了(这是迪尔的独创)。有天晚上,当他找不到猫和松鼠吃,就把她的手指咬掉了。她大部分时间坐在客厅里哭个不停,而布却慢慢地把房间里的家具一点点地削坏了。

The three of us were the boys who got into trouble; I was the probate judge, for achange; Dill led Jem away and crammed him beneath the steps, poking him with thebrushbroom. Jem would reappear as needed in the shapes of the sheriff, assortedtownsfolk, and Miss Stephanie Crawford, who had more to say about the Radleys thananybody in Maycomb.

我们三个都同时扮演那些尽惹麻烦的青年人;为了换换口味,我扮演了遗嘱法官;迪尔把杰姆领回去,把他塞到台阶底下,用扫帚打他几下。按照需要,杰姆以市政官员或者镇上各种人的身分出现。有时他装扮成斯蒂芬尼·克劳福德小姐。在梅科姆县,对拉德利家的情况她比谁都知道得多。

When it was time to play Boo’s big scene, Jem would sneak into the house, steal thescissors from the sewing-machine drawer when Calpurnia’s back was turned, then sit inthe swing and cut up newspapers. Dill would walk by, cough at Jem, and Jem wouldfake a plunge into Dill’s thigh. From where I stood it looked real.

要演布的那个大场面时.杰姆偷偷溜进房间,趁卡尔珀尼亚转身时从缝纫机的抽屉里偷出剪刀,然后坐在悬椅上剪报纸。接着迪尔从他身边走过,朝他咳嗽一声,杰姆假装用剪刀朝迪尔的大腿猛刺。从我站的地方看去,他们演得象真的一样。

When Mr. Nathan Radley passed us on his daily trip to town, we would stand still andsilent until he was out of sight, then wonder what he would do to us if he suspected. Ouractivities halted when any of the neighbors appeared, and once I saw Miss MaudieAtkinson staring across the street at us, her hedge clippers poised in midair.

内森·拉德利先生每天从我们身边走过到镇上去时,我们都站着不动,也不做声,直到看不见他。然后我们就会猜想,要是他猜到我们在干啥,他会对我们怎么样。只要看见哪个邻居,我们的活动立刻停止。有一次,我看见莫迪?阿特金森小姐在街对面盯着我们,手里拿着的树篱剪刀停在半空中。

One day we were so busily playing Chapter XXV, Book II of One Man’s Family, we didnot see Atticus standing on the sidewalk looking at us, slapping a rolled magazineagainst his knee. The sun said twelve noon.

一天,我们击紧张地演着《一个人的家庭》第二卷第二十五章时,没注意阿迪克斯正站在人行道上望着我们,手拿一份卷着的杂志拍打着膝盖。头顶上的太阳告诉我们时问已是正午。
