    Good-morning, Miss Crane, Dr. Anderson will see you in a few moments. Sit down right here.”

    "早上好,卡兰小姐。安德鲁博士马上就能见你,先在这坐一会吧。"

    

    She felt the inquiry in the shuttered eyes. For some reason this dissipated her self-consciousness and restored her poise. Thanking him, she seated herself, really careless now of the glances of the stenographers, book-keepers, clerks. Their curiosity and slightly veiled hostility no longer touched her. Her coming departure had released her from the need for conciliation which had irked her for so long.

    赫尔嘉感觉到了一双双在暗处的眼睛里的质疑。由于某些原因,这让她分散了自我意识,并且归于镇静。谢过秘书后,她坐到了椅子上。她现在不再在乎那些速记员,会计,职员的瞥视。他们对她的好奇,略微显示出来的敌意再也不会让她有感觉了。她即将迎来的启程已经让她不再需要安慰了,而之前,需要安慰已使她烦恼已久。

    赫尔嘉感觉到百叶窗后的一双双睛中的探究。出于某种原因,这使她不再难为情,并变得镇静起来。谢过秘书后,她坐到了椅子上。现在她不再在乎那些速记员,簿记员,职员的偷看。他们对她的好奇,轻微流露出的敌意再也无法触动她。即将迎来的旅程抚慰了她那颗长久以来渴望安慰的心

 

    It was pleasant to Helga Crane to be able to sit calmly looking out of the window on to the smooth lawn, where a few leave quite prematurely fallen dotted the grass, for once uncaring whether the frock which she wore roused disapproval or envy.

    对于赫尔嘉. 卡兰来说,能平静地坐在那儿看着窗子外平整的,被几片过早凋落的树叶装点的草地,是一大乐事。她第一次不去在乎她穿的那件连衣裙是否引起了别人的不满或嫉妒。

   

     Turning from the window, her gaze wandered contemptuously over the dull attire of the women workers. Drab colors, mostly navy blue, black, brown; unrelieved, save for a scrap of white or tan about the hands and necks. 

    赫尔嘉的视线离开了窗户,她轻蔑的扫视着那些女性员工老土的穿衣打扮。她们的穿衣打扮都是些单调的颜色,绝大多数为藏蓝色,黑色,棕色;除此之外,她们手上脖子上戴的白色或黑色“废品”也同样单调乏味。


    Fragments of a speech made by the dean of women floated through her thoughts-"Bright colors are vulgar"-"Black, gray, brown. and navy blue are the most becoming colors for color people"-"Dark-complected people shouldn't wear yellow, or green or red." 

    赫尔嘉想起了女院长一次演讲的只言片语。她说:“亮色是低俗的。” “黑色,灰色,棕色,藏蓝色是最适合黑人的颜色。” “那些纯黑的人不应该穿黄色,绿色或红色的衣服。
