    He spoke of his great admiration for the Negro race, no other race in so short a time had made so much progress, but he had urgently besought them to know when and where to stop. 

    他说了对黑人种族这种崇高的敬意,“没有其他任何一个种族在如此短的时间里能够取到如此大的进步。” 但他又力劝这些黑人们懂得适可而止。         


    He hoped, he sincerely hoped, that they wouldn't become avaricious and grasping, thinking only of adding to their earthly goods, for that would be a sin in the sight of Almighty God. And then he had spoken of contentment, embellishing his words with scriptural quotations and pointing out to them that it was their duty to be satisfied in the estate to which they had been called, hewers of wood and drawers of water. And then he had prayed.

    他真诚的希望黑人们不要变得贪婪,不要只想着增加他们自己世俗的本领。这在上帝的眼里有可能是一种罪恶。然后他说到了知足,并引用圣经里的箴言来为他的演讲润色。他又向他们指出黑人们的职责就是应该满足于生活在他们可以樵柴捕鱼的居住地。最后他开始祈祷。

Sitting there in her room, long hours after, Helga again felt a surge of hot anger and seething resentment. And again it subsided in amazement at the memory of the considerable applause which had greeted the speaker just before he had asked his God's blessing upon them. 

    在赫尔嘉久坐房间后,又感觉到盛怒和愤恨开始在她心里奔涌。但又一次,这种盛怒和愤恨被对中午时的一段记忆的惊愕所冲淡。那段记忆就是在白人牧师面对着黑人们祈祷上帝之,黑人们给予了他热烈的掌声。

   

   The South. Naxos. Negro education. Suddenly she hated them all. Strange, too, for this was the thing which she had ardently desired to share in, to be a part of this monument to one man's genius and vision.

    突然之间,赫尔嘉恨透了南方,以及纳克索斯和对黑人的教育。这非常奇怪,她本应该是充满热情非常乐意参与到白人牧师充满了智慧及独特眼光的里程碑似的的演讲中去的。

 

    She pinned a scrap of paper about the bulb under the lamp's shade, for, having discarded her book in the certainly that in such a mood even Said and his audacious villainy could not charm her, she wanted an even more soothing darkness.

    她在台灯灯罩下别上了一块纸片挡住了灯泡。因为她在这种心情的驱使下,连《渔夫说》及主人公大胆的恶行都无法再吸引她,所以她想把自己陷入到更静寂的黑暗之中。


     She wished it were vacation, so that she might get away for a time. 

     她想有个假期,那样她就能逃离这里一段时间了。
