介绍:
Lover 情人(节选) 玛格丽特·杜拉斯 One day, I was already old, in the entrance of a public place a man came up to me. He introduced himself and said:' I've known you for years. Every-one says you were beautiful when you were young, but I want to tell you I think you're more beautiful now than then. Rather than your face as a young woman, I prefer your face as it is now. Ravaged.' 我已经老了,有一天,在一处公共场所的大厅里,有一个男人向我走来。他主动介绍自己,他对我说:“我认识你,永远记得你。那时候,你还很年轻,人人都说你美,现在,我是特为来告诉你,对我来说,我觉得现在你比年轻的时候更美,那时你是年轻女人,与你那时的面貌相比,我更爱你现在备受摧残的面容。 I often think of the image only I can see now, and of which I've never spoken. It's always there, in the same silence, amazing. It's the only image of my-self I like, the only one in which I recognize myself, in which I delight. 这个形象,我是时常想到的,这个形象,只有我一个人能看到,这个形象,我却从来不曾说起。它就在那里,在无声无息之中,永远使人为之惊叹。在所有的形象之中,只有它让我感到自悦自喜,只有在它那里,我才认识自己,感到心醉神迷。 My ageing was very sudden. I saw it spread over my features one by one, changing the relationship between them, making the eyes larger, the expression sadder, the mouth more final, leaving great creases in the forehead. But instead of being dismayed I watched this process with the same sort of interest I might have taken in the reading of a book. 衰老的过程是冷酷无情的。我眼看着衰老在我颜面上步步紧逼,一点点侵蚀,我的面容各有关部位也发生了变化,两眼变得越来越大,目光变得凄切无神,嘴变得更加固定僵化,额上刻满了深深的裂痕。我倒并没有被这一切吓倒,相反,我注意看那衰老如何在我的颜面上肆虐践踏,就好像我很有兴趣读一本书一样。
