P1

The Beginning of the World 

世界之初


    Before earth and sea and heavens became known, the face of nature was one crude, formless mass. Land and sea and air were mingled together. The universe was a uniform darkness, without sun and moon, and the earth was no more than an embryo heap. In the middle of the pervading gloom sat Chaos and his wife, the goddess of Night(Nyx), who reigned but did not rule ,for the whole space was lifeless.
    在大地、海洋和天空为人所知之前,大自然是未被加工的、未成形的一片。陆地、海洋和天空全部混在一起。宇宙是一成不变的黑暗,没有太阳和月亮,大地比一个胚好不了多少。在这无尽黑暗之中,坐着创世神和他的妻子,司夜女神尼克斯,他们统治着这个世界,但没有进行管理,因为整个宇宙没有任何的生命。

    Centuries later, with the birth of Light and Day, earth and sea and air came into existence. Still later, the union of Gaea(Eeath) and Uranus(Heaven) gave birth ot the Titans, the Cyclopes and the Centimani, all giants in stature and strength. Afraid that his own gigantic childeren might usurp his throne, Uranus drove them all back to the earth, and thus roused the resentment of the mother Gaea. At her instigation one of her sons, Kronus, attacked and wounded Uranus with a sickle he had taken from his mother, and took over as supreme ruler of the universe.
    几个世纪之后,随着光和白昼的出现,大地、海洋和天空出现了。盖亚(大地女神)和乌拉诺斯(天神)的结合,使泰坦族包括独眼巨人和百臂巨人在内,所有的巨人既高大又有力。唯恐被他自己巨大的孩子篡夺王位,乌拉诺斯把他们全部赶到了陆地上,这举动使得他们的母亲盖亚产生了怨恨。在她的鼓动下,她的其中一个儿子克洛诺斯,攻击了乌拉诺斯,并用从他母亲那里得来的镰刀砍伤了他,取而代之成为了宇宙的最高统治者。

    And then Kronus married his own sister Rhea and entrusted the management of the sun to his brother Hyperion and the moon to his sister Phoebe. He ruled his realm peacefully until an oracle prophesied that he would one day be dethroned by one of his own childeren. To avert the disaster he took the excessive precaution of swallowing up all his five childeren one by one immediately after their birth. These were Hestia(Vesta), Demeter(Ceres), Hera(Juno), Poseidon(Neptune) and Hades(Pluto).

    接着,克洛诺斯娶了自己的姐姐瑞亚,并且让许珀里翁管理太阳,让他的姐姐福柏管理月亮。他顺利地统治自己的区域,直到出现了一则预言——他将被自己的一个孩子赶下王位。为了防止这个灾难的发生,他在孩子出生之后甚至做出了极端的预防措施——依次吞下了他所有的5个孩子。他们分别是赫斯提(维斯塔),得墨忒耳(刻瑞斯),赫拉(朱诺),波塞冬(尼普顿),哈得斯(普鲁托)。【1】


【1】()里的名字为同一个神的罗马名字。

感想:

希腊神好乱,乱伦比如弟弟与姐姐结婚。裙带关系,比如管理者的任命。阴谋比如为了防止被篡位而吃掉自己儿子。怎么吃得下去啊喂!!

还有,翻译好渣。明天把中文对照拉上来看看。
