After what seemed a very long, dark time he tried once more to bark loud enough to make people hear. Then he tried to bite the other things in the box with him, stupid little toy animals(1), really only made of wood or lead, not enchanted real dogs like Rover. But it was no good; he could not bark or bite.

一段无比漫长黑暗的时间过去之后,他又试着大声吠叫,想让人听见。接着,他又尝试撕咬箱子里的其他东西,那些死蠢(1)的动物玩具:它们才真的是用木头和皮革做成的,而不像罗佛,是只被施咒的真正小狗。但是这也没用,他叫不出声,也不能咬。


Suddenly someone came and took off the lid of the box, and let in the light.

突然,有人走了过来,拿走箱子的顶盖,让光线照了进来。

 

'We had better put a few of these animals in the window this morning, Harry,' said a voice, and a hand came into the box. 'Where did this one come from?' said the voice, as the hand took hold of Rover. 'I don't remember seeing this one before. It's no business in the three penny box, I'm sure. Did you ever see anything so real-looking? Look at its fur and its eyes! '

“我们今天最好把这里的一些动物放进橱窗里,哈利。”一个声音说到,接着一只手伸进了箱子里。“这只是从哪里来的?”声音说着,那只手伸过来抓住了罗佛。“我不记得之前看见过这只。可是它绝对不能放在三便士一个的那个箱子里。你有看见过这么像真的玩具吗?看看它这皮毛和眼睛!”


'Mark him sixpence,' said Harry, 'and put him in the front of the window! '

“那就给它标六便士吧,”哈利说,“然后再把它放到橱窗前面!”

 

There in the front of the window in the hot sun poor little Rover had to sit all the morning, and all the afternoon, till nearly tea-time; and all the while he had to sit up and pretend to beg, though really in his inside he was very angry indeed.

于是在炎热的阳光下,可怜的罗佛在橱窗的前面坐了整整一个上午,加上整整一个下午,差不多到下午茶时间。这期间他不得不保持蹲坐乞求的姿势,尽管他早就是满心怒火。


'I'll run away from the very first people that buy me,' he said to the other toys. 'I'm real. I'm not a toy, and I won't be a toy! But I wish someone would come and buy me quick. I hate this shop, and I can't move all stuck up in the window like this.'

“我会从第一个来买我的人手上逃走。”他对其他玩具说,“我是真的小狗,不是玩偶,今后也不会是!但是我希望赶快有个人来把我买走。我讨厌这商店,这样卡在橱窗里我动也动不了。”


后篇走:2014.09.07【英译中】Roverandom《罗佛兰登》【四】



journal: 我一直觉得英文里的silly,idiot之类这种词很难翻....翻成傻瓜,愚蠢的之类的又觉得翻译腔十分浓郁...求高人告诉我怎样翻比较合适呢?
