THE AMBER SPYGLASS

作者 : 菲利普·普尔曼

The morning comes, the night decays, the watchmen leave their stations; The grave is burst, the spices shed, the linen wrapped up; The bones of death, the cov'ring clay, the sinews shrunk & dry'd Reviving shake, inspiring move, breathing, awakening, Spring like redeemed captives when their bonds & bars are burst.Let the slave grinding at the mill run out into the field, Let him look up into the heavens & laugh in the bright air; Let the inchained soul, shut up in darkness and in sighing, Whose face has never seen a smile in thirty weary years, Rise and look out; his chains are loose, his dungeon doors are open; And let his wife and children return from the oppressor's scourge.They look behind at every step & believe it is a dream, Singing: The Sun has left his blackness & has found a fresher morning, And the fair Moon rejoices in the clear & cloudless night; For Empire is no more, and now the Lion & Wolf shall cease.-from America: A Prophecy by William Blake O stars, isn't it from you that the lover's desire for the face of his beloved arises? Doesn't his secret insight into her pure features come from the pure constellations?-from The Third Elegy by Rainer Maria Rilke Fine vapors escape from whatever is doing the living.The night is cold and delicate and full of angels Pounding down the living. The factories are all lit up, The chime goes unheard.We are together at last, though far apart.-from The Ecclesiast by John Ashbery

Paradise Lost Ⅶ

作者 : 约翰·弥尔顿

Milton's Paradise Lost is one of the greatest epic poems in the English language. It tells the story of the Fall of Man, a tale of immense drama and excitement, of rebellion and treachery, of innocence pitted against corruption, in which God and Satan fight a bitter battle for control of mankind's destiny. The struggle rages across three worlds - heaven, hell, and earth - as Satan and his band of rebel angels plot their revenge against God. At the center of the conflict are Adam and Eve, motivated by all too human temptations, but whose ultimate downfall is unyielding love.Marked by Milton's characteristic erudition is a work epic both in scale and, notoriously, in ambition. For nearly 350 years it has held generation upon generation of scholars, students and readers in rapt attention and its profound influence can be seen in almost every corner of Western culture.

The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter

作者 : 卡森·麦卡勒斯

When Carson McCullers was a teenager, she came to New York City to study piano at Juilliard. She never matriculated; she lost the purse with her tuition money in it. Such small, unredressed tragedies as these are at the silent, solitary heart of McCullers' first novel, which centers on a deaf-mute and a teenage tomboy living in a small Georgia town in the 1930s. McCullers' characters reach out to one another for sympathy and understanding, but not all of them can complete the connection, and their isolated thoughts form a choir of amazing, transcendent poignance—music only the reader can hear. —L.G.

Jane Eyre

作者 : 夏洛蒂·勃朗特

Jane Eyre is a first-person narrative of the title character, a small, plain-faced, intelligent and honest English orphan. The novel goes through five distinct stages — Jane's childhood at Gateshead, where she is abused by her aunt and cousins; her education at Lowood Academy, where she acquires friends and role models but also suffers privations; her time as the governess of Thornfield Manor, where she falls in love with her Byronic employer, Edward Rochester; her time with the Rivers family at Marsh's End (or Moor House) and Morton, where her cold clergyman-cousin St John Rivers proposes to her; and her reunion with and marriage to her beloved Rochester at his house of Ferndean. Partly autobiographical, the novel abounds with social criticism and sinister Gothic elements.Jane Eyre is divided into 38 chapters; most editions are at least 400 pages long (although the preface and introduction on certain copies are liable to take up another 100). The original was published in three volumes — Volume One (comprising chapters one to fifteen), Volume Two (sixteen to 26) and Volume Three (27 to 38).

John Donne Selected Poems

作者 : 约翰·多恩

John Donne (1572-1631) was the most outstanding of the English Metaphysical Poets and a churchman famous for his spellbinding sermons.Donne's poetry embraces a wide range of secular and religious subjects. He wrote cynical verse about inconstancy, poems about true love, Neoplatonic lyrics on the mystical union of lovers' souls and bodies and brilliant satires and hymns depicting his own spiritual struggles. The two Anniversaries - An Anatomy of the World (1611) and Of the Progress of the Soul (1612)--are elegies for 15-year-old Elizabeth Drury.Whatever the subject, Donne's poems reveal the same characteristics that typified the work of the metaphysical poets: dazzling wordplay, often explicitly sexual; paradox; subtle argumentation; surprising contrasts; intricate psychological analysis; and striking imagery selected from nontraditional areas such as law, physiology, scholastic philosophy, and mathematics.Obsessed with the idea of death, Donne preached what was called his own funeral sermon, Death's Duel just a few weeks before he died in London on March 31, 1631.

SONNETS FROM THE PORTUGUESE AND OTHER LOVE POEMS

作者 : 伊丽莎白·巴雷特·勃朗宁

ELIZABETH BARRETT BROWNING[伊丽莎白·巴雷特·勃朗宁]于公元1806年出生在达翰姆(英格兰北部一郡)。1838年,她出版了《撒拉弗和其它诗篇》[撒拉佛——六翼天使(九级天使中地位最高者),又称:炽爱天使]。1843年,由于当时英国的最高统治者是女性,伊丽莎白于国家诗人的提名得到了更加广泛的支持。结果很不幸,她输给了威廉·华兹华斯--同一时代的另一位伟大诗人[有机会笔者会撰文介绍此人]。此后不久,伊利沙白与罗伯特·勃朗宁——另一位有才华的诗人,结婚了。然而,伊丽莎白的父亲,却不同意这场婚事。于是,这对情侣决定出逃。并由此,引发了一场浪漫的婚姻。伊丽莎白与罗伯特·勃朗宁准备各自出发,逃往意大利,并在比萨会合,去继续他们的生活。他们成功了。三年后,即1849年,他们已在意大利中部的佛罗伦萨定居。一日,伊丽莎白送给她的丈夫一件珍贵的礼物——44首她为丈夫写的十四行诗,里面有开始时的怀疑,与家庭抗争的恐惧,与爱人的甜蜜,及最终爱的胜利的喜悦。同年,他们唯一的男孩出生了。一年后,即1850年,勃朗宁夫妇出版了那44首诗,但做了些伪装。他们用葡萄牙十四行诗集为这44首诗命名。如此一来,读者便会接受这些诗是由葡萄牙语翻译过来的的暗示。于是,我们今天可以看到如此表达真爱和深爱的诗句。伊丽莎白的浪漫婚姻促成了她的,也是整个维多利亚时代的,最美丽的爱情商籁体诗。

A Little Princess

作者 : 弗朗西丝·霍奇森·伯内特

Once on a dark winter's day, when the yellow fog hung so thick and heavy in the streets of London that the lamps were lighted and the shop windows blazed with gas as they do at night, an odd- looking little girl sat in a cab with her father and was driven rather slowly through the big thoroughfares. She sat with her feet tucked under her, and leaned against her father, who held her in his arm, as she stared out of the window at the passing people with a queer old-fashioned thoughtfulness in her big eyes.
