我以前曾在这里贴出引自约翰逊论莎士比亚的一段话,考考大家:That praises are 【with】reason lavished...。答案是引错文,应为【without】。这是为了提醒大家做翻译或阅读时如果遇到引文太难,应查回原文。不久前我从网上看到一本看来是盗版的书,里面有约翰逊论莎士比亚译文,但整本书所有文章都没有译者姓名,这篇也不例外。这篇译文,第一段就错译了,译者似乎没读通。现在把原译文... (7回应)

最近修订差不多二十年前译的几首沃尔科特诗,发现这首有个句子译错了。想深一层,也真的难度很高。即使正确译出来,读者脑子也得转一百八十度弯才能明白。同学们试试吧,就是练习标题中那句。 Winding Up by Derek Walcott I live on the water, alone. Without wife and children, I have circled every possibility to come to this: a low house by grey water, with wi... (5回应)

接下去几个翻译练习.本栏都到目前为止都一直仅止于理解即可,各自表达,而且我尽可能不去评断哪家表达更好,尤其是在文笔修辞和风格上.要见出细微差别,在诗里比较才会比较具体.这里提供几个例子,同学们可各自发挥,然后我们再来看看得失.但基本上可以说,没有终极答案.我会给出我自己的译文,但也只是一种选择而已. Early on I learned to change everything quickly The ground on which... (30回应)

Walter Isaacson isn’t surprised by Jobs’s hospital-bed demeanor, and by the time the anecdote comes up more... (9回应)
