Helga was unmoved. She was no longer concerned with what anyone in Naxos might think of her, for she was now in love with the piquancy of leaving. Automatically her fingers adjusted the Chinese-looking pillows on the low couch that served for her bed. Her mind was busy with plans for departure. Packing, money, trains, and-could she get a berth?

赫尔嘉一动也没动。她再也不会在乎纳克索斯里的任何一个人对她的想法,因为她正沉浸在即将离开的痛快之中。她的手指已经无法离开那个在矮沙发上的中国风枕头了。这个矮沙发赫尔嘉是当床来用的。她的脑袋里满是关于启程的各种计划。打包的东西,钱,火车。她还在想自己是否可以买到一张卧铺票。

On one side of the long, white, hot sand road that split the flat green, there was a little shade, for it was bordered with trees. Helga Crane walked there so that the sun could not so easily get at her. As she went slowly across the empty campus she was conscious of a vague tenderness for the scene spread out before her. It was so incredibly lovely, so appealing, and so facile. The trees in their spring beauty sent through her restive mind a sharp thrill of pleasure. 

第三章

一条滚烫的白色沙石路绵延着分开了平坦的草地。路的一边种满了树,因此得以洒下一片小小的阴影。赫尔嘉 卡兰走在这片树荫下,这样太阳就很难晒到她了。当她在慢悠悠地穿越空荡荡的校园时,她从铺展在眼前的景象里知悉到一种模糊的亲切感。(其中conscious of在此处的意思有点不大确定。求指点^-^ )这景色优美的令人窒息,如此动人,温润。树木那沐浴在春光中的美好身姿给赫尔嘉那躁动不安的思想猛地注入了一剂愉悦,她为之一震。

Seductive, charming, and beckoning as cities were, they had not this easy inhuman loveliness. The trees, she thought, on city avenues and boulevards, in city parks and gardens, were tamed, held prisoners in a surrounding maze of human beings. Here they were free. It was human beings who were prisoners. It was too bad. In the midst of all this radiant life. They weren’t, she knew, even conscious of its presence. Perhaps there was too much of it, and therefore it was less than nothing.

这些树木像那些城市一样(赫尔嘉所向往的城市) 充满魅力,诱惑,心动。这些树的品质不是这低级而无人性的美好。赫尔嘉想,在城市林荫道,大马路边的树,在城市公园,花园里的树,都已被驯服,是困在庞杂人群中的囚犯。在学校里,树们是自由自在的,而人是囚犯。这太糟糕了。即使是在树绚烂的一生中最美的时刻,人们都意识不到它们的存在。也许树太多了,因此还不如一棵树都没有。
