    Teachers as well as students were subjected to the paring process, for it tolerated no innovations, no individualisms.

    老师们和学生们都是这个剥削机制的附属品。因为在这机制中,他们不允许有创新,不允许有自我

    Ideas it rejected, and looked with open hostility on one and all who had the temerity to offer a suggestion or ever so mildly express a disapproval.

    在这机制里,想法是被抵制的。无论是个体还是集体,只要是大胆的提出建议或委婉的表达异议,那么他们就会被公然排斥。

   Enthusiasm, spontaneity, if not actually suppressed, were at least openly regretted as unladylike or ungentlemanly qualities. The place was smug and fat with self-satisfaction.

   热忱,献身精神,如果这些还没有真正的被禁止过的话。那么做出这些行为的人至少要为这些不淑女不绅士的行为公开致歉。这个学校的人自私,自鸣得意,中饱私囊。

    

    A peculiar characteristic trait, cold, slowly accumulated unreason in which all values were distorted or else ceased to exist, had with surprising ferociousness shaken the bulwarks of that self-restraint which was also, curiously, a part of her nature. 

    一种奇特的别具一格的路线,冰冷的,缓慢的,没有原因的一点点成型。与此同时,所有的价值观都被摒弃或遏制。这些都恶狠狠的动摇了人们自我约束的堡垒。令人好奇的是,这堡垒也同样是赫尔嘉天性的一部分。

   

    And now that it had waned as quickly as it had risen, she smiled again, and this time the smile held a faint amusement, which wiped away the little hardness which had congealed her lovely face. 

    现在这种自我约束在以它形成时的那种飞快速度在赫尔嘉身上消逝。她又一次笑了笑,但这次这笑使赫尔嘉的心情稍稍愉悦了些,拂去了一点僵在她那可爱的脸上的冷酷表情。

    

    Nevertheless she was soothed by the impetuous discharge of violence, and a sigh of relief came from her.

    尽管如此,由于这暴力倾向的突然放下,她的心里舒服了些。她松了一口气。

    She said aloud, quietly, dispassionately:"Well, I‘m through with that," and, shutting off the hard, bright blaze of the overhead lights, went back to her chair and settled down with an odd gesture of sudden soft collapse, like a person who had been for months fighting the devil and then unexpectedly had turned round and agreed to do his bidding.

    赫尔嘉大声的,平静的,面无表情的说到,“好吧,我已经度过了难关。“ 她关掉了头上那盏冰冷刺眼的灯,带着那种崩溃稍稍缓解后的姿势,她重新坐到她的椅子上。现在的她就像是一个和恶魔搏斗了数月然后出人意料的妥协了并同意了恶魔的要求的人。
