Returning to James Vayle, her thoughts took on the frigidity of complete determination. Her resolution to end her stay in Naxos would of course inevitable end her engagement to James. 

再把注意力转移到詹姆斯 瓦来先生身上。(此人物曾出现在第9篇之中。)由于下了铁一样的决心,赫尔嘉对他已经完全变得冷淡了。她既然决定不再呆在纳克索斯了,那么她和詹姆斯的订婚就会不可避免的取消。


She had been engaged to him since her first semester here, when both had been new workers, and both were lonely. Together they had discussed their work and problems in adjustment, and had drifted into a closer relationship. 

赫尔嘉在到纳克索斯的第一个学期就和詹姆斯订婚了。他俩那时候都刚来纳克索斯工作,都是孤孤零零的。他们在一块讨在这论适应期里他们的工作和遇到的问题。就这样在不知不觉中,他们的关系越来越近了


Bitterly she reflected that James had speedily and with entire ease fitted into his niche. He was now completely “naturalized,” as they used laughingly to call it. 

“詹姆斯迅速的,无比轻松的融入进了他的新职位,”赫尔嘉苦楚的想到,“他现在已经完全被‘驯化’了,而当初他们是拿这个词来开玩笑的。“


Helga, on the other hand, had never quite achieved the unmistakable Naxos mold, would never achieve it, in spite of much trying. She could neither conform, nor be happy in her unconformity. 

另一方面,赫尔嘉从来都没能真正得到纳克索斯这精准无误模式的真传,尽管她尝试多次,她也永远不会得到。她既不能适应环境,也为她自己的不适应而感到闷闷不乐


This she saw clearly now, and with cold anger at all the past futile effort. What a waste! How pathetically she had struggled in those first months and with what small success. 

现在她都想明白了。她对过去自己做的那些无用功感到特别生气。那真是种浪费!她刚来纳克索斯的那几个月挣扎的多么可怜但却却收效甚微。


A lack somewhere. Always she had considered it a lack of understanding on the part of the community, but in her present new revolt she realized that the fault had been partly hers. 

赫尔嘉总觉得在某方面出了点问题。她过去经常认为是学校这个大社区不懂得理解她,但现在在她对学校这新一轮的反抗之中,她才意识到她自己也有错。
