Chapter 1 (Vol. I, Chap. I)  第一章 00002


"Why, my dear, you must know, Mrs. Long says that Netherfield is taken by a young man of large fortune from the north of England; that he came down on Monday in a chaise and four to see the place, and was so much delighted with it that he agreed with Mr. Morris immediately; that he is to take possession before Michaelmas, and some of his servants are to be in the house by the end of next week."

“哦!亲爱的,你得知道,郎格太太说,租尼日斐花园的是个阔少爷,他是英格兰北部的人;听说他星期一那天,乘着一辆驷马大轿车来看房子,看得非常中意,当场就和莫理斯先生谈妥了;他要在‘米迦勒节’以前搬进来,打算下个周未先叫几个佣人来住。”

"What is his name?"

“这个人叫什么名字?”

"Bingley."

“彬格莱。”

"Is he married or single?"

“有太太的呢,还是单身汉?”

"Oh! single, my dear, to be sure! A single man of large fortune; four or five thousand a year. What a fine thing for our girls!"

“噢!是个单身汉,亲爱的,确确实实是个单身汉!一个有钱的单身汉;每年有四五千磅的收入。真是女儿们的福气!”

"How so? how can it affect them?"

“这怎么说?关女儿们什么事?”

"My dear Mr. Bennet," replied his wife, "how can you be so tiresome! You must know that I am thinking of his marrying one of them."

“我的好老爷,”太太回答道,“你怎么这样叫人讨厌!告诉你吧,我正在盘算,他要是挑我们一个女儿做老婆,可多好!”

"Is that his design in settling here?"

“他住到这儿来,就是为了这个打算吗?”

"Design! nonsense, how can you talk so! But it is very likely that he may fall in love with one of them, and therefore you must visit him as soon as he comes."

打算!胡扯,这是哪儿的话!不过,他倒兴许看中我们的某一个女儿呢。他一搬来,你就得去拜访拜访他。”

"I see no occasion for that. You and the girls may go, or you may send them by themselves, which perhaps will be still better; for, as you are as handsome as any of them, Mr. Bingley might like you the best of the party."

“我不用去。你带着女儿们去就得啦,要不你干脆打发她们自己去,那或许倒更好些,因为你跟女儿们比起来,她们哪一个都不能胜过你的美貌,你去了,彬格莱先生倒可能挑中你呢?”

"My dear, you flatter me. I certainly have had my share of beauty, but I do not pretend to be any thing extraordinary now. When a woman has five grown-up daughters, she ought to give over thinking of her own beauty."

“我的好老爷,你太捧我啦。从前也的确有人赞赏过我的美貌,现在我可不敢说有什么出众的地方了。一个女人家有了五个成年的女儿,就不该对自己的美貌再转什么念头。”

"In such cases, a woman has not often much beauty to think of."

“这样看来,一个女人家对自己的美貌也转不了多少念头喽。”

"But, my dear, you must indeed go and see Mr. Bingley when he comes into the neighbourhood."

“不过,我的好老爷,彬格莱一搬到我们的邻近来,你的确应该去看看他。”

"It is more than I engage for, I assure you."

“老实跟你说吧,这不是我份内的事。”
