Gatsby’s house was still empty when I left—the grass on his lawn had grown as long as mine. One of the taxi drivers in the village never took a fare past the entrance gate without stopping for a minute and pointing inside; perhaps it was he who drove Daisy and Gatsby over to East Egg the night of the accident, and perhaps he had made a story about it all his own. I didn’t want to hear it and I avoided him when I got off the train.

我走的时候盖茨比的房子仍然空着,他的草坪上的草已经长的和我一样高了。村子里有一个出租车司机从来不载那些要去盖茨比家的大门入口或者在他们家门口停一会儿或者进去的客人,可能他就是那个在事故当晚带着黛西和盖茨比去东卵区的司机;而且估计他自己也已经为他俩编好一个故事了。我也不想听,于是下了火车后我避开了他。

I spent my Saturday nights inNew Yorkbecause those gleaming, dazzling parties of his were with me so vividly that I could still hear the music and the laughter, faint and incessant, from his garden, and the cars going up and down his drive. One night I did hear a material car there, and saw its lights stop at his front steps. But I didn’t investigate. Probably it was some final guest who had been away at the ends of the earth and didn’t know that the party was over.

一整个星期六晚上我都呆在纽约,因为那些耀眼而炫目的派对始终在我眼前徘徊,我似乎还能听到音乐声和人们的谈笑声,令人头晕目眩却不断从他的花园里和他驾驶的汽车里传来。有一天晚上我确实听见有一辆车在哪儿,车灯停在他家的台阶前。但是我没太在意,也许是一些人因为住的太远所以不知道派对已经结束了,他们也是最后的客人了。

On the last night, with my trunk packed and my car sold to the grocer, I went over and looked at that huge incoherent failure of a house once more. On the white steps an obscene word, scrawled by some boy with a piece of brick, stood out clearly in the moonlight, and I erased it, drawing my shoe raspingly along the stone. Then I wandered down to the beach and sprawled out on the sand.

最后一天的晚上,我的行李打包完毕,汽车也卖给了车行,我又一次回到了那口房子,那房子看起来就像一个失败品,虽然巨大却支离破碎。门前白色的台阶上,一些孩子们用砖块在上面写了一个脏字,在月光的照耀下格外分明,我用鞋底擦掉了它,鞋底和石头摩擦着发出刺耳的声音。然后我漫不经心地向沙滩走去。
