The Hobbit


Chaper 1
AN UNEXPECTED PARTY

导读:今天这段看起来有点长,大家不要畏惧哦,前面是hobbit人的特点描述。后面是家族关系。


    The mother of our particular hobbit - what is a hobbit? I suppose hobbits need some description nowadays, since they have become rare and shy of the Big People, as they call us. They are (or were) a little prople, about half our height, and smaller than the bearded Swarves.[矮人] Hobbits have no beards. There is little or no magic about them. except the ordinary everyday sort which helps them to disappear quietly and quickly when large stupid folk like elephants which they can hear a mile off. They are inclined[倾斜,倾向于] to be fat in the stomach; they dress in bright colours (chiefly green and yellow); wear no shoes, because their feet grow natural leathery soles[脚底] and thick warm brown hair like the stuff on their heads (which is curly); have long clever brown fingers, good-natured faces, and laugh deep fruity laughs (especially after dinner, which they have twice a day when they can get it). Now you know enough to go on with. As I was saying, the mother of this hobbit - of BilboBaggins, that is - was the famous Belladonna Took, one of the three remarkable daughters of the Old Took, head of the hobbits who lived across The Water, the small river that ran at the foot of The Hill. It was often said (in other families) that long ago one of the Took ancestors must have taken a fairy wife. That was, of course, absurd, but certainly there was still something not entirely hobbitlike about them, and once in a while members of the Took-clan[氏族宗族] would go and have adventures. They discreetly[小心的] disappeared, and the family hushed[使沉默] it up; but the fact remained that the Tooks were not as respectable as the Bagginses, though they were undoubtedly richer.
